NO ENCORE #059 | Monkey Business

With neither a Dave nor an ENCORE in sight, Colm O’Regan and Craig Fitzpatrick put the music world to rights for another week. Will they go ape for the new Gorillaz album? Is Katy Perry’s latest track as tasty as it appears? And what’s found when sifting through the embers of Ja Rule’s festival of Fyre? All that, and more, is settled within…


ACT ONE: Bahamas bananas, the Pitt-list, and a puntastic Bieber menu are among the news stories of the week.

ACT TWO: Offerings from Fall Out Boy, Mac DeMarco and !!! fall under the microscope during Songs of the Week – though it’s the newest effort from Katy Perry that draws most attention.

ACT THREE: Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett have resurrected their virtual band, drawing on a very real era of chaos. But does the fourth Gorillaz album, Humanz, live up to expectations?
