Consisting of Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, Del the Funkee Homosapien, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth, Kid Koala, Miho Hatori, and Damon Albarn, Gorillaz is some kind of messed up supergroup. Their debut EP (with album to follow this spring) is alternative cut-and-paste hip-hop, much like Nakamura's Handsome Boy Modeling School, but with smoother edges and a cooler type of soul. Blur's Damon Albarn adds his velvety vocals to three of the four songs here, but that's all the surface connection you'll find. The songs are as unlike each other as the band members; frustrating, maybe, on such a short EP, but promising for the full length to come. Best in show is the freaky lullaby "12D3", which I'm betting will be too weird to make the final cut.
