All of Albarn’s musical obsessions are present on his revealing solo debut: dubby textures á la Gorillaz, Caribbean and African notes, looming classical instrumentation and church choruses that evoke England’s past – all wrapped around a singing voice that’s become deep and searching where it was once sharp and snarky. The past two Gorillaz albums, Plastic Beach and The Fall, both from 2010, often had a forlorn sense of spliffed-out drift. The mood on Everyday Robots is even more sparely intimate, and often quite downbeat.
The debut solo album from Blur and Gorillaz front man features the singles EVERYDAY ROBOTS and HEAVY SEAS OF LOVE. DVD includes 4 songs live from Fox Studios in Los Angeles and track by track interview.
