Composed by GoGo Penguin Chris Illingworth, Nick Blacka, Rob Turner Piano: Chris Illingworth Double Bass: Nick Blacka Drums. Music video by GoGo Penguin performing A Humdrum Star. 2018 Decca Records Humdrum Star is the fourth studio album by English band GoGo Penguin. It was released in February 2018 under Blue Note Penguin. A Humdrum Star. The band's fourth studio album, and second for Blue Note, 2018's atmospheric A Humdrum Star, finds them delving even deeper into an electronic-influenced sound that favors texture and mood over standards or jazz-based elements. Once again featured are bassist Nick Blacka, pianist Chris Illingworth, and drummer Rob Turner. Working with producers Joe Reiser and Brendan Williams, the trio offers a set of original compositions rife with skittering breakbeats, roiling piano melodies, and warm acoustic bass grooves. GoGo Penguin is the eponymous fifth studio album by English band GoGo Penguin. It was released on 5 June 2020 under Blue Note Records. All music is composed by Chris Illingworth, Nick Blacka and Rob Turner. Chris Illingworth - artwork, piano. Nick Blacka - bass. GoGo Penguin. 1 year ago 1 year ago.

Listen free to GoGo Penguin A Humdrum Star Prayer, Raven and more. 9 tracks 50:45. GoGo Penguin is a British jazz band from Manchester, UK, featuring pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner. The band is an exhilarating live act, drawing on a heady brew of influences from Aphex Twin to Brian Eno, Debussy to Shostakovich and Massive Attack to EST. The band's music features break-beats, minimalist piano melodies, powerful basslines, drums inspired from electronica and anthemic riffs. They compose and perform as a unit. For their fourth studio release, the Radiohead of British jazz have taken a headlong leap into interstellar soundscapes, with cosmic melodies and seemingly limitless arrangements. Last Autumn, GoGo Penguin rescored the experimental film Koyaanisqatsi for several UK shows and while A Humdrum Star clearly takes a creative cue from this experience of live soundtracking, it also has a cosmic quality that might be traced to filmmakers like Tarkovsky and Nolan. This is art informed by science and wonder, which uses space as a metaphor for a particularly atheist loneliness


There are pop-ups on both records.On the first song "Prayer" there are some very annoying sounds (something like krkkkk).Pitty for such good sounding record.
I am pretty certain those sounds are part of the recording. If you turn up the volume, you can discern that it is (possibly) a synthesizer.
What a fantastical album! Despite there being only three instruments and no vocals listening never gets dull and each track is mesmerizing due to the quality of the playing. The whole set is really well paced and beautifully put together. The pressing / recording is one of the best I have in more than 600 records. No clicks or pops at all and lovely sound stage and dynamic range. Absolutely first class.
Wow.. what an incredible pressing! Sounds awesome, just goes to show what can be done with vinyl.

Is this version -or any of the others- limited? If yes, how many?
My Download Card was for wav files, not mp3's. Definitely an appreciated bonus.
I got two copy of the red vinyl album and, on disc one there is a pressing problem at the begining of the record (on two sides).The record make vibrates the cartirdge and so make vibrate the sound, especialy the piano!!!Anyone got the same problem?but FANTASTIC album!!! like the 3 first albums!!!Philippe
Just listened carefully and same problem here... Only on side one
Just realized I‘ve got the same problem... for me it looks like some serious scratches...
I've got the same problem on the first disc !
I found this a really enjoyable listen, a great soundstage on a lovely pressing, Sleeve and pressing very nice. Definitely a V2.0 follow on. Recommended
Brilliant record, follows up with the fiery intensity of V 2.0!
