Back in the 1990s, Damon Albarn was the Chris Martin of Coldplay only with plenty more talent to go with it. A self important little Public School boy but one who wrote two of the 1990s best albums, Modern Life Is Rubbish and Parklife. before becoming the sort of muso with no clue how to produce Bobby Womack. After 

the news that Damon Albarn and not Blur has been one of the major bummers of 2014 and this piece of additional info harbors plenty of ill wind: Albarn describes the album as  “my most soul-searching and autobiographical yet, explores nature versus technology.” Really? Nature versus technology? Yeah, Damon, where do the children play?

Damon is a touch thing to think about; he is just so self-righteous in his musical, Damon is a major bummer. He drains the fun out of his possibility. I mean, who else can invent a hugely successful cartoon band, Gorillaz, and still be a drag? Only someone who courts his own genius like he is a mix of ham and hamlet. The teaser (at the bottom of this post) is pretty horrendous. It is so much “a Harlem stinger please”, it is so condescending and dull.

The album, Everyday Robots, and according to Gigwise: “The album, produced by XL’s Richard Russell, has also been called ‘a sort of folk soul’. It will be preceded by the LP’s title track on 3 March. The deluxe edition of the album will come packaged with a DVD of Albarn performing album tracks live at Fox Studios Los Angeles. ” Brian Eno and Bats For Lashes are involved. 

I could add to the track list here but I don’t think I’ll bother
