Morning Music Notes – HAIM and Goliath
Gorillaz are back… is the exact kind of phrase that would start off my Monday mornings on a great note. While not 100% back, Damon Albarn did play an unrelease ditty from the cartoon band.
While sitting in for Dermot O’Leary on BBC Radio 2, Albarn played an instrumental track called Whirlwind from the Plastic Beach sessions which features the Syrian National Orchestra. Sadly, Albarn noted he has lost contact with some of the orchestra members, due to the political situation in Syria, and dedicated the song to them. Check it out below.
