Over the weekend I had been listening to this live performance from the Gorillaz, though it seems to me that it’s just Damon with a backup and, playing their version of the xx song Crystalised. I’m personally of the mindset that the xx are kinda’ boring but I’m a fan of this version because I think Damon Albarn has one of the best voices out there. I’ve posted the video and an MP3 version just in case the video gets yoinked. A pretty good way to start Monday, am I right?

    Ouf, I really like Albarn’s work, (G,B&Q and Monkey more than Gorillaz) but this is really … not good.
