Editors’ Notes

Damon Albarn’s discography is as wide-ranging as any figure in contemporary rock. Everyday Robots brings together elements from his singular musical journey. This solo album boasts the haunting, dub-oriented elements of The Good, the Bad and the Queen, Gorillaz’ dazed electronic ambience and the percussive textures of 2005’s collaborative Mali Music. The result is a stunning collection of deeply emotional experimental rock that only a musician of his range could have created. “We are everyday robots on our phones”, he laments on the opening title track, introducing the album’s theme of isolation in the digital age. But the album that follows is anything but robotic: when Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) provides a spectral echo on “Selfish Giant”, a mournful horn solo punctuates “Hollow Ponds” or the gospel choir sings back-up on the radiant Afropop-influenced “Mr. Tembo”, the result is deeply affecting.

Customer Reviews

Dreary and lacking cohesion

The work wallows in self-importance. It is an exploration of things that bored middle aged ex pop stars think are artworks. The occasional vocal lilt promises a glimmer of excitement.
If you are bored don’t put out long albums full of self absorbed forays into pot banging squeaks, moans and mixed musical genres. What is the point of this sketch book of ideas. I really like Damon Albarn but this lacks the cohesion of strong ideas arranged in tunes from the gorillaz- set.

Can't wait

Really looking forward to this. It's gonna be great!

Lonely Press Play....

.....is a clever tune indeed.
