Damon Albarn: Everyday Robots
Buy! - (Warner Bros.)
The debut solo album from the former Blur frontman (and Gorillaz leader) is a mostly dark, brooding set of eclectic, beat-driven pop with a stripped-down, dub-influenced sound combining haunting piano, mournful strings, glitchy beat loops and occasional other instrumentation with Albarn’s fragile vocals, wistful melodies and introspective, often-autobiographical lyrics revolving around childhood memories and the alienating effects of modern technology. 4/25/2014 - Don Yates
