hip hop alternative

Music is it’s own language, and I don’t think most people realize how freaking cool that is.

No matter what type of emotion you are feeling, I can almost guarantee you’ll find a song to match those emotions.

Gorillaz and politics.

I’m seeing a lot of hate towards the Gorillaz, due to their political messages in the new album, titled “Humanz”. I’d like to first start out with saying, Music is art, and art is allowed to be, and almost always is political. As Skunk Anansie says “Yes, it’s fucking political. Everything’s political”. Secondly, The Gorillaz have always been a political, left-leaning, liberal band. If you don’t know that by know, then you haven’t been listing to any of the lyrics. (I will be creating another post about Gorillaz previous political music and linking it here later on in the day). 

Even the virtual band members are political. They are all left leaning as well if you were wondering, and yes that includes the most problematic member, Murdoc. Murdoc voted aginst Brexit, he is proud of the fact that coppers don’t carry guns in the UK, and he’s a feminist. 

If you have a problem with the fact that the Gorillaz is realising songs about police brutality, racial inequality, and the 2016 election. Then please, get over yourself. Leave if you don’t like it, but don’t try to say that they are all of a sudden political, it only proves that you are uneducated. They have always been political and will likely always be.

And yes. The entire album will be political. Damon started to write it in early 2016 as a “what if” to the unbelievable possibility of trump being elected. All of phase 4 takes place in a dark nightmarish world that he watched become reality, where you can no longer look at the people around you the same because of the election.

“Wouldn’t it be nice if we were just normal people, yeah? Tryin’ so hard to act like we don’t care. But it’s true, you do, nothing is left, so I guess I’m right. New word, onomatopoeia, boom!  Quit actin’ like you don’t wanna be here. Fuck around and get jumped like leap year.”
