This weekend marks the release of new music from Gorillaz, the animated music sensation from Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. It is packed with high-profile guests, including Vince Staples, De La Soul, and Jehnny Beth. It's politically aware, but intentionally does not reference the current administration. It broke the weekend of the inauguration with a video featuring Mercury Prize Winner Benjamin Clementine that mysteriously unfolded like a hijacked television broadcast meant to mesmerize viewers out of their stupor.
Speaking of television, Gorillaz are reportedly coming to a screen near you.
Left of the Dial airs Fridays nights from 9-11 and Saturdays from noon-2 on KRCU.
