First Impressions: Gorillaz On The 'Beach' With Womack and Mos Def

Friday, January 22, 2010

It's been a moment since "Feel Good Inc." would wake me up every day during my freshman year in college, jump starting my days of uncomfortable higher learning. Now dive into this year the virtual band, Gorillaz are releasing a brand new album, entitled Plastic Beach. The group's third outing to feature some massive names on its tracklisting, as De La Soul, Lou Reed, Little Dragon and Snoop Dogg are just a few of the names to be on the Beach.

Currently the futuristic slip n' slide of first single, "Stylo" premiered on Giant Step, and it's funky beyond belief. Featuring Mos Def and the legendary, Bobby Womack, "Stylo" eerily pulsates along with a gurgling synth backbeat that bridges classic soul, new-wave and trip-hop for a seedy listening experience. Just a perfect combination all around, especially with the addition of Womack, who's vocals add a certain grit to the track. Listen and download below.

Plastic Beach will be released March, 8th.
