But what else do we know about them? Who are Gorillaz? Gorillaz were formed in 1998 by the Blur frontman and acclaimed solo artist Damon Albarn, and graphic artist Jamie Hewlett.

One of the wilder musical episodes this writer has heard in 2018 gets going a little more than three minutes into “Bovicidal,” the opening track on a new album by guitarist Brandon Seabrook’s eponymous trio. As double-bassist Henry Fraser sets up a steady pulse, the leader solos over top, moving from tight, twitchy, spasm-like phrases to sharp, stabbing chords, while cellist Daniel Levin adds his rough, sawing bow work. Like much of this record, aptly titled Convulsionaries , the passage sounds like some sort of rogue hybrid of chamber music and jazz , as though three virtuosos at an elite music school had secretly gathered in a practice room late at night to explore their most outré ideas.
