Blur Debuts Two Wildly Different Tracks Via Twitter

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteTwitter

Two new Blur songs for the price of one none?!? It must be our lucky day!

Blur pushed out two new tracks today and, let us be the first ones to tell you, these twins are NOT identical!

The Puritan (above) sounds like a funky cross between a British rendition of the Daria theme song and the Gorillaz doing dubstep. You might be in for a bit more bass-wobble than you expected!

Under the Westway (below) more closely resembles your Father's Blur. It's catchy and lovely and altogether sweet.

Filed under: Music MinuteTech Talk

gorillaz to release ipad album for free on christmas

The Gorillaz have been giving out all types of exclusive gifts on their virtual advent calendar on their website, but the best gift is yet to come!

Jamie Hewlett, a frequent collaborator with the group, has confirmed that a Gorillaz album, recorded entirely on iPad, will be released on Christmas morning as a FREE GIFT for fans.

Here's what Hewlett had to say about it:

"On Christmas Eve, a video for one of the new songs from the iPad album will be released. Then, on Christmas Day, fans get the whole album downloaded to their computer for free as a gift."

Here's what Gorillaz' Damon Albarn had to say about his feat:

"I literally made it on the road in America over a month. I didn't write it before; I didn't prepare it. I just did it day by day as a kind of diary of my experience in America."

Pretty impressive, Damon! We'll look forward to checking it out!

Are U excited for a free Gorillaz album?

How resourceful!!

Damon Albarn says that he's been recording a new Gorillaz album on his iPad while on tour!!

Talking about the follow-up to Plastic Beach, Albarn says, "I've made it on an iPad – I hope I'll be making the first record on an iPad," he said. "I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I've made a completely different kind of record."

He adds that he plans to release the album "before Christmas."

That's only a few weeks away! We can't wait to hear the new sound!

Will an iPad music-making app be the new Pro Tools??

Somebody Else Doesn't Like Glee

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteGlee

Okay, we get it. Some of you aren't onboard the Sue Sylvester Express. We respect that.

But like it or not, it is here to stay, so you might as well suck it up and at least enjoy all the Barbra Streisand songs being reborn by Lea Michele!

English singer-songwriter Damon Albarn was recently interview and made no hesitation is letting the world know he isn't down with the Gleeks.

Check out the video (above) to hear Damon tear into the show, calling it a show that will lead to "emptiness."

Harsh!

Gorillaz Don't Want Their Songs On Glee

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteGlee

gorillaz wont allow glee to perform their songs on the show

Gorillaz may have created the Grammy-Award winning song Feel Good Inc., but they don't feel good at all about their songs being performed on Glee.

Here's what lead singer Damon Albarn had to say about Glee using their songs:

"We wouldn't let that happen. And not that they've asked us because they haven't, and now they definitely won't."

Albarn claims that shows like Glee showcase "a very poor substitute for the real thing.

More from Albarn:

"Those songs won't last like The Beatles by any stretch of their imagination. They'll be forgotten in a few years' time."

What do U think? Do Gorillaz make good points, or should they let Glee take a crack at Feel Good Inc?
