Gorillaz-Plastic_Beach

UK trip-hoppers Gorillaz have released a video for the sixth single off their very-well-received 2010 album Plastic Beach -– it’s the record’s Snoop-featuring quasi title track, “Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach.” The video puts the rapper’s ringman meets pirate costumery and awkward dance moves in the foreground over the song’s smooth, in-your-face bass loop. The best thing about the song, though, is the brass, provided by the aptly named Chicago ensemble Hypnotic Brass. I like Snoop’s verses, but he’s only one of many elements that make the song so good, and I wish more attention was given to the others. Regardless, the video’s worth a watch or two.
