Producing an online advent calendar is clearly one of the essential accessories for music websites in the build up to Christmas. First, the minimal techno label Kompakt produced theirs (see here) and now Damon Albarn’s ubiquitous super group Gorillaz have followed up with a similar effort here.
But the band isn’t exactly full of Christmas cheer. “Tis the season to be Mary… Blah, blah, Bah Humbug, blah….! Insert your own jovial Xmas bull***t here,” reads a message above the calendar. Fortunately, its contents make up for the grumpiness, with soundcheck footage, Gorillaz masks, and desktop wallpaper among the items behind each door.
