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

Greatness

im 42 this year, and very few albums or new artists strike a chord with me. Im bored with most of todays music and i tend to venture back to the 70's and 60's to find new /old music which is a bit depressing when you think about it. Damon Albarn is great, he writes great songs and whatever name he seems to work under he produces the kind of sound and mood that Im looking for. I will be buying this album and hold on tight to the few artists left that make me feel that music can have a life changing affect on us.

Excellent

If the single and the previews from his Sundance Festival performance are anything to go by, this is going to be a brilliant collection from one of Britain's greatest songwriting talents.

A touch of reality

An interesting view through Damons Life Window in the Culture Shows mini doc on the reasons and influences behind the Blur' frontmans first solo album readies you for a meaningful musical journey. Unmistakenly Damon with an earned confidence to express himself.Art is an expression and this album takes us away from pop but is still penned by a man close not just to his varied roots but gifts his audience with a nod that as fellow humans we all have those moments,memories,and thoughts of people,places and feelings.Fundementally though the time or geography may be different the music carries us along at a gentle pace with those connections we can relate to even if our own song on life would differ,we can reach down and pick up those shared emotional experiences.Damon has always been a 'real' artist and with a background of diversity,musical talent and art in the blood this is a mature production with touching and beautiful use of lyric,harmony,choir and string to name a few.Of course in the 90's id have just said' "Nice one mate!!!",but hey,im 40 something now so excuse me for rambling.Well done mate,no touch up required.This is no nonsense,it touches those little places in our memories and takes us back to whatever may have made us what we are.Its thoughful song writing with the emotions captured melodically.Its no nonsense,and why hasnt an established artist like Damon produced a solo album till now.Because he wasnt ready too.Now he has,the maturity and experience shine through.Nice one mate.
