Damon Albarn Announces New Album

Is it Blur? Gorillaz? A proper solo LP? Well, not quite.

The prolific Damon Albarn has announced a new project called DRC Music; set to release their first album this October.

According to Pitchfork:

recording in Democratic Republic of Congo with XL Recordings boss Richard Russell, Dan the Automator, Actress, Kwes, T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosurs), Jneiro Jarel, Marc Antoine, Alwest, Remi Kabaka, and Rodaidh McDonald as DRC Music.

Now, that project has an album ready for release: Kinshasa One Two will see release via Warp digitally on October 4 in the U.S. (October 3 in the UK) and physically on November 8 (November 7 in the UK). The album was recorded in Kinshasa over the course of five days, in collaboration with local musicians. Proceeds will go to Oxfam to help their relief efforts in Democratic Republic of Congo.

A worthy cause indeed, produced by a stellar team of praise-worthy musicians. Hear the first track, “Hallo,” from their album below.

New Music Releases: Red Hot Lil’ Wayne Crows

Picking up slightly as we ease into a new school year, August 29th sees the return of several familiar faces including Weezy F. Baby, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Counting Crows, and Mike Doughty. Some of these releases seeming to be more of the same (good and bad), but hopefully the Fall will mean a new freshman class of artists releasing solid material in the weeks to come. For now we’ll just have to make due with the tried and true.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – I’m With You

Jake Owen – Barefoot Blue Jean Night

Mike Doughty – Yes and Also Yes

Lenny Kravitz – Black and White America

Edwin McCain – Mercy Bound

Counting Crows – August & Everything After: Live

Lil Wayne – Tha Carter IV

David Guetta – Nothing But the Beat
