Gorillaz Xmas-iPad-Album: The Fall

Das neue Gorillaz-Album ist raus, auch mit einem iPad aufgenommen. Das Ding gibt’s zum Anhören gegen ein Abo des Newsletters (ging bei mir auch einfach mit dem Klick auf „I’m on the Mailing-List“, zum Download allerdings nur für Mitglieder von Sub Division, dem Official Online Gorillaz-Fanclub oder für Leute, die wissen, wie man ‘ne Suchmaschine und Torrents bedient. (Yep, it’s out there already und in dem Zusammenhang: Unsern Kramfutterronny hat an Weihnachten ein Dubtechno-Album für lau rausgehauen. Bei mehr als einem Track Dubtechno schlafe ich zwar immer sofort ein, aber es soll ja Leute geben, die sowas wirklich gut finden.)

All tracks written and performed by Gorillaz using the iPad and additional instruments: Korg Vocoder, Ukelele, Microkorg, Omnichord, Moog Voyager, Melodica, Guitar, Piano, Korg Monotron. Except track 13 written and performed by Gorillaz and Bobby Womack. Recorded between Montreal and Vancouver over 32 days on the Gorillaz North American Tour 2010.
