RIYL: Damon Albarn and company

Label: Parlophone

And voila. ¬†It’s Gorillaz overload this week, innit? ¬†Hope ya copped that Vinyl, Me Please red variant of their heralded Demon Days, but if that one escaped your grimy fingers, then feast your eyes on the ginormous 14-disc box set of their newest 2017 opus Humanz. ¬†If your hype level hasn’t driven into the red, check out the guest list on these tracks…Vince Staples, Danny Brown, De La Soul, Mavis f-ing Staples, Pusha T, Grace f-ing Jones and MANY MORE. ¬†Boys and girls, this is going to be insane. ¬†Grab that fat stack you’ve been saving up for a big vinyl purchase and smash that ‘buy’ link. ¬†Otherwise, get outta the way.

Each vinyl in the set is a different color, and as far as I can tell, that’s the only colored vinyl option in their many choices. ¬†They’re also housed in a 54-page cloth-bound hardback book, so in case you thought Gorillaz were feckin around…you thought wrong. ¬†There’s an ‘art book’ bundle you can get HERE¬†and¬†the solo classic black vinyl HERE, but you’re gonna have to shell out a few hundred more clams for that sickeningly sweet box set. ¬†Check out their newest video below while you’re thinking about it.

The Details
