Track Of The Day: The Good, The Bad and The Queen - Ribbons

Another track from one of 2018's finest LPs, 'Merrie Land' by Damon Albarn's amazing supergroup The Good The Bad and The Queen. The tender 'Ribbons' is a spacious, acoustic, organic beauty which delivers another magical introspective melody. Along with Blur's triumphant 'The Magic Whip', but operating around a completely different concept and musical dynamic, 'Merrie Land' offers the finest example of Damon Albarn's gift as a great songwriter, again reaffirming his status as one of the all time great British musicians. Who better to address social divisions and the looming uncertainties and impacts of Brexit?
