Savages

After seeing Savages at SXSW, Jim reported back that he“saw god.”So imagine how thrilled we were to have god…er…Savages perform live in front of an audience at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. Jehnny Beth, Gemma Thompson, Ayse Hassan, and Fay Milton played songs from their Matador debut and talked about drummer warm-ups, rock and roll PhDs and why we should all“be here, now.”Couldn‘t be there in person? We’ve got video!

Savages Adore Life

The post-punk band Savages is back with their second album Adore Life. The group's first album, Silence Yourself, was a big hit with Jim and Greg. And Jim is not disappointed with the new one, which posits that there's nothing silly about love songs. These are twisted, dark and unconventional with none of the band's hellfire sacrificed. Greg agrees, praising this departure and each band member's contribution—from the propulsive rhythm section of bassist Ayse Hassan and drummer Fay Milton to guitarist Gemma Thompson's innovative guitar noise to Jehnny Beth's vocal intensity. Adore Life gets a double Buy It.

Gorillaz Humanz

The virtual band led by Blur's Damon Albarn, Gorillaz, is back with the group's fifth album. While they may technically be a“fictional”band, their impressive record and concert sales are very real. Their new record, Humanz, features collaborations with artists like Mavis Staples, Pusha T, Jehnny Beth of Savages, Grace Jones and more. Jim thinks Humanz is another great and creative effort from Gorillaz. He thinks the guest cameos work well from track to track, and that Damon Albarn created an interesting, dystopian effort. He gives it a Buy It. Greg is also a big Gorillaz fan, and thinks that Albarn gets the best out of his guests, and particularly loves the cameos from new artist Benjamin Clementine and rapper Vince Staples. While he doesn't think much of the collaboration track from Albarn and“enemy”Noel Gallagher of Oasis, he thinks Humanz is a great end of the world party soundtrack. He gives it a Buy It.
