VIDEO: Gorillaz – Crystalised (The xx Cover)

by Winston "Stone" Ford

You gotta love BBC1’s Live Lounge. While Billboard is getting press over here for its hit or miss attempts at Mashup Mondays, it’s the Brits who have perfected the art of artist covers.

Take the group Gorillaz, who seem to be on a second promotional blitz in support of their album Plastic Beach and their new single Doncamatic with singer Daley. Apart of that blitz seems to be a stop at the Live Lounge, where they Albarn and company seamlessly cover The XX’s Crystalised. (thx Soul Culture)
