Daily Listen-Gorillaz-Glitter Freeze

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of checking out the Great American Book Sale in Erie, PA. Put on by the Friends of the Library group, the event is held at the gargantuan McDowell Intermediate High School and features over 75,000 items. Books are marked down to about $2(!) at maximum, so I ended up accumulating a massive pile, so large that my arms hurt the next day from hauling them all around. After a few minutes of racing around and haphazardly grabbing works from Jonathan Franzen, Maya Angelou, Kurt Vonnegut, and more, I made a beeline for the CDs, of course. Never in my life have I seen more Celine Dion, Christian music, or Celine Dion Christmas music. Scattered throughout the sea of Dion, however, were a few gems, which I snapped up greedily, several times nearly bowling over a small child who thought it was a good idea to sit on the floor next to the CD table. I ended up walking out with stuff ranging from Outkast to Tears For Fears, and one of the albums I picked up was Plastic Beach by Gorillaz, one with which I had been faintly familiar, but now love after listening to it all week. “Glitter Freeze,” a rollicking track guided by laser beam synths, is one of my favorites, but the whole album is incredible. Many have probably heard this one already, but give it a listen if not.
