Gorillaz are on a tear... Just when we were starting to get used to waiting seven years for a new record, the biggest virtual band in the world are back again with another one, barely more than a year after the critically-acclaimed Humanz album. Jamie Hewlett and Damon Albarn are in the director’s chairs, with James Ford of Simian Mobile Disco handling the beats (fresh off producing Arctic MonkeysTranquility Base Hotel & Casino and Depeche Mode’s Spirit). If you were put off by the guest-heavy Humanz last year, this one is for you: the only guests are the album are Snoop Dogg and Jamie Principle (on the same track!), and George Benson. 2-D, Noodle, Murdoc and Russel seem to have slowed things down a bit as well; while Humanz consisted mostly of uptempo club tracks (‘a party for the end of the world’), The Now Now is a breezier, funkier, more optimistic affair (consider it a soundtrack for after the nuclear dust has settled). Breezy lead single “Humility” could have easily been plucked off a volume of Too Slow To Disco if not for Albarn’s unmistakeable voice. “Lake Zurich” is a glossy analog funk instrumental that will fit snugly between any two Metro Area burners. Black vinyl pressing with printed inner sleeve and code for digital download.
