Nurburg 2018 [no label, 2CD]

Rock am Ring. Crater Stage, Nürburgring, Nürburg, Germany; June 3, 2018. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by musician Damon (Blur) Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2-D (lead vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar and vocals), Noodle (guitar, keyboards) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion). These members are fictional and are not personas of any “real life” musicians involved in the project.

In June 2018, the group released their sixth studio album, The Now Now.

‘The Now Now’ is a spritely listen. Where ‘Humanz’ leaned too heavily on swampy, generic hip-hop beats (‘Saturnz Barz’, ‘Submission’), ‘The Now Now’ prides itself on making 11 pop tracks that zip with energy, passion and an abundance of ideas. Some are stripped right down to their core and are all the better for it, like the largely instrumental numbers ‘Lake Zurich’ and ‘One Percent’.
- The NME

The allure of isolation defines Damon Albarn’s latest project [The Now Now]. With only a few guests on the album, he writes simple, mostly upbeat songs with words of exhaustion.
