Gorillaz - Electronic Hip-Pop

Some Songs To Get Your Started

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

More About Them

Gorillaz are an animated 2D band created by Damon Albarn & Jamie Hewlett. They've done live performances with holographs of the band playing live, and their music is ridiculously catchy.

They'll have rappers on with them, such as Snoop Dog and Mos Def, along with other singers like Bobby Womack & Lou Reed.

The list of talent goes on: orchestral brass arrangements, gospel choirs, MF Doom - Gorillaz knows how to bring talent together.

I see Gorillaz as a PG-13 equivalent to Outkast. They're commercially very succesful, but they show a huge amount of artistic integrity. Gorillaz is the culmination of rap, hip-hop, electronic, and pop ideas all put into a best-of-breed package.

There be a lot of singles on these albums.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
