Download This: Songs by Gorillaz, and others

GORILLAZ, ”BILL MURRAY”
They saluted Clint Eastwood with their 2001 hit named after the legend; now pop’s best cartoon troublemakers give props to everyone’s favorite tortured funnyman with this slow-roller. Buy it on iTunes

BEAT STRINGS, ”STARLIGHT”
Uniting punk recklessness and new-wave tunefulness with little regard for musical niceties, this rising Iowa band tumbles headlong with fist-pump hooks and towering vocals. Download the track for free courtesy of XOXO Records

VITALIC, ”PONEY, PT. 1” (MUSIC VIDEO)
This surreal music video for techno guru Vitalic’s thumping track highlights the inherent marvels of dogs soaring through the air in super slo-mo. Just watch out for that demonic poodle! Watch the video for free courtesy of the director’s site

PEDRO, ”FEAR & RESILIENCE”
Unafraid to mix disparate genres like hip-hop, jazz, and folk, the U.K. producer offers a schizophrenic from his admirably eclectic self-titled debut CD. Download the track for free courtesy of Mush Records
