There’s so much good music out in the ether that sometimes it’s difficult to parse through all of it. Every week The Daily Music Report will do the hard work for you and highlight the best releases available on streaming services.
This week we’re highlighting new music from Gorillaz, Philip Selway, and U.S. Girls.
Gorillaz – Cracker Island
Damon Albarn and the Gorillaz continue to build on the long lineage of collaborations that have propelled the British 4-piece forward since the late 90s. Twenty-six years and eight installments later, Cracker Island expands the Gorillaz’ universe even further with collabs from Stevie Nicks, Adeleye Omotayo, Thundercat, Tame Impala, Bad Bunny, Bootie Brown, and Beck.
Standout Songs: Cracker Island (feat. Thundercat), Silent Running (feat. Adeleye Omotayo), New Gold (feat. Tame Impala and Bootie Brown), Baby Queen, Tormenta (feat. Bad Bunny)
Philip Selway – Strange Dance
Released via Bella Union, Philip Selway’s third studio album Strange Dance is a treasure of orchestral precision. The Radiohead drummer purposefully chose not to drum on the album and enlisted Italian drummer Valentina Magaletti stating that he was out of practice and “not in the right mindset.”
Standout Songs: Check For Signs Of Life, Picking Up Pieces, Make It Go Away
U.S. Girls – Bless This Mess
Toronto-based experimental pop project U.S. Girls has released their 8th studio album. Consisting solely of American musician and record producer Meghan Remy, Bless This Mess is yet another instance of reinvention for the talented musician. Created during the COVID lockdown, the title is also a reference to Remy becoming a mother to a set of twins.
Standout Songs: Futures Bet, So Typically Now, Bless This Mess
