In an interview with Nicolas Jaar, reporting for The FADER, Andre 3000 shared his thoughts on Outkast’s 2014 Reunion Tour:

“Honestly, just, you know—I didn’t wanna do the tour. We hadn’t performed in 10 years. It was old songs,” he said. “I’m like, How am I gonna present these songs? I don’t have nothing new to say. So I was like, maybe I can start saying new stuff while doing these old songs. It became a theme where I was more excited about this than the actual show. This is fun, running out in these.”

gorillaz-gorillaz-
In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Blur frontman Damon Albarn has revealed that he’s been “in the process of reactivating Gorillaz for a 2016 release.” The virtual band has not released an album since 2011’s The Fall.

The book will feature drawings from Hewlett’s prolific 25-year career. The book’s release date is still unknown, but it ultimately could fill the void left by the inactivated Gorillaz, and provide some interesting material for fans who have been awaiting their next release.

#30 – Eno•Hyde – High Life – Feel Connected Top 50 Albums of 2014

Eno•Hyde, better known as Brian Eno and Karl Hyde, released two albums on Warp Records in 2014. First, Someday World was released in May. Less than two months later the duo released High Life. The latter has a sound reminiscent of 20th century minimalism composers like Steve Reich and Phillip Glass.

To many music lovers Brian Eno is an icon in experimental electronic music. He has influenced a number of great artists; The Talking Heads, David Bowie, Coldplay, U2, David Byrne, and DEVO. Today Eno’s influence has broadened into the design of generative music apps like Bloom, Scape, Trope, and Air.

Phish’s Anniversary Montage from Fleet Center 12/2/2003

PHiSH -20th Anniversary Video Montage- 12/2/2003 Boston, MA. This half hour video played in the Fleet Center during set break, and consists of footage of the band progressing through the years. It began with extremely early footage of the band playing “Fluffhead” in what appears to be a dormroom, and ran through video of such famed shows as The Alladin Theater, the “Dog Log” show, Halloween 94 and 95, NYE 94-98, as well as several clips of Cypress and the reunion show.

Setlist from Tuesday, 12/02/2003 FleetCenter, Boston, MA – courtesy of phish.net
Set 1: Harry Hood > Cavern, Birds of a Feather, Ya Mar, Horn > Piper > Anything But Me, Water in the Sky, Down with Disease

Set 2: Rock and Roll -> Weekapaug Groove-> Tweezer Reprise > Frankenstein -> Kung -> Frankenstein, All of These Dreams, The Wedge, Boogie On Reggae Woman > Cities > Maze, Waste
Encore: Bug

This gig commemorated the 20th anniversary of the first Phish show. In the audience, a section of seats were roped off to make way for a music stand. The music stand held a three-ring binder that contained lyrics from the Phish canon, but it did not play an active role in the performance. Ya Mar contained teases of The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana). At the end of Disease, a video screen descended behind the stage. As the house lights remained down, a 25+ minute video was played featuring retrospective highlights from throughout Phish’s career. Before the second set, Mike brought out a tray of desserts and shared them with fans in front of the stage. Highway to Hell was briefly teased by Trey before Rock and Roll. Weekapaug was unfinished. Tweezer Reprise included lyrics (sung by Trey) from Mike’s Song. Appropriately, the post-show house music was the Beatles’ song Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band (which begins with the lyric, “It was twenty years ago today…”).
