ALBUM: Gorillaz – The Fall
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Listen: Gorillaz – The Fall
As much as I want to dismiss the iPad as a fad, I gotta respect it’s capability (along with it’s sister iPhone) as dynamic creative platform. Who needs instruments anymore, when you can play everyting on your phone. Who needs turntables when people are making careers as iPad Djs? And who needs a studio if you’re a major label artist if you can record everything on a 10 inch tablet?
The game done changed.
Unlike some iOS projects which sounded tingy, The Fall pushes the limits of the platform and shows us what it’s capable of. The 15 songs included in the album were recorded while the band was on tour in North America and has a distinct sound from Plastic Beach, but still retains the Gorillaz sound. Check it.
