Chickenscopes decided to create an updated version of the opening scene where the music really matches the movements. Original video here.

Gorillaz f/Beck: The Valley of the Pagans

We’ve been grooving to the Gorillaz album Song Machine, Season One since it dropped, and their team-up with Beck on The Valley of the Pagans is one of our favorite tracks. Now, we have the official music video, which just happens to have been created in Grand Theft Auto V.

Gorillaz f/Elton John + 6LACK

The Gorillaz’s Song Machine continues to entertain us with great collaborations, like The Pink Phantom, a emotional and eclectic ballad about a failed relationship that leads to tragedy. This time, the cartoon musicians are accompanied by rapper 6LACK and none other than Sir Elton John on vocals and piano.

Feel Good Inc. with Marbles

Feel Good Inc. with Marbles

Remix artist William Maranci did a great job combining the warm and inviting sounds of Wintergatan’s musical marble machine with Gorillaz’ track Feel Good Inc. As its musician and inventor cranks it up, Maranci has to fool with the BPM a bit, but that’s part of the fun.

Gorillaz: Aries

Gorillaz: Aries

“High tide, and it feels like I’m falling in again.” Gorillaz brings us a great new track from their Song Machine series. Recorded in collaboration with New Order and Joy Division co-founder Peter Hook and Georgia, the tune has the sounds and textures of a long lost track from New Order’s back catalog.

Feel Good Inc. on Stylophone

Steady, watch me navigate, ha-ha-ha-ha-ha! Stylophone maestro maromaro1337 performs a great multitrack cover of Gorillaz and De La Soul’s earworm Feel Good Inc., using nothing but inexpensive analog synths to take the place of the vocal and instrumental tracks.

Breaking Down “Feel Good Inc.”

Breaking Down “Feel Good Inc.”

Despite its jangly and upbeat sounds, Gorillaz’s 2005 hit Feel Good Inc. was actually a sharp criticism of the music industry and consumer culture. Polyphonic offers up a great analysis of the track and its music video, and why it’s so clever in the way it delivers its message.

Gorillaz: Hollywood

Gorillaz: Hollywood

In what is sure to be one of the big hits off of Gorillaz‘ new album THE NOW NOW, the cartoons are joined by Snoop Dogg and Jamie Principle for a thumping good banger of a track about Hollywood’s superficiality and chew-em-up and spit-em-out culture.

Gorillaz: Humility

Gorillaz: Humility

What’s this, two Gorillaz albums in less than a year? That’s what appears to be the case with the release of the first single off of THE NOW NOW, a smooth and groovy track featuring vocals from 2D, George Benson, and a music video with a typically effervescent Jack Black.

Warp Trio: Humanz

Warp Trio: Humanz

(PG-13: Language) The 3+1 members of the Warp Trio perform an energetic and enthralling arrangement of the entire 2017 Gorillaz album Humanz on piano, cello, violin, and percussion. It’s definitely well worth the next 32 minutes of your time.

Gorillaz: Sleeping Powder

Gorillaz: Sleeping Powder

This new bonus track from our favorite, ever-mutating cartoon band starts out slow and subdued, then kicks into high gear, as 2-D draws us in with his tale of drug addiction, and won’t let go. We’re only bummed that this track didn’t make it onto Humanz.

Flop Good Inc.

Flop Good Inc.

There’s something about the high-pitched sound of the scannner stepper motor that suits itself so well to Gorillaz Feel Good Inc., it now takes its place as our favorite cover track from Paweł Zadrożniak’s electromechanical orchestram, beating out The Final Flopdown.

Gorillaz Samples (2001-2017)

Gorillaz Samples (2001-2017)

Besides Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, one thing that’s been consistent in Gorillaz’ ever-changing 16+ year run is the use of samples. Kirima Nagi put together this video which catalogs some of the many sound bites which have made their way into the group’s tracks.

Gorillaz: Saturnz Barz

Gorillaz: Saturnz Barz

Feel Good Inc.: Metal Cover

Feel Good Inc.: Metal Cover

Musician Leo Moracchioli of Frog Leap Studios transformed the classic Gorillaz (or is it Bunniez?) track into a hard-edged rock arrangement. The behind the scenes video is worth a watch too. We’re amazed that the cameraman didn’t end up on his butt.
