[Download] Tony da Gatorra vs. Gruff Rhys - "In A House With No Mirrors (You'll Never Get Old)"

Super Furry Animal's frontman Gruff Rhys reminds me alot of Gorillaz/Blur frontman Damon Albarn. It isn't because they sound similar, Gruff is always working on crazy experimental projects like Albarn, no wonder why Damon brought Gruff on board for the latest Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach. This time around Rhys is putting out an experimental record with Tony da Gatorra, who is a Brazilian TV and VCR repairman.

The record is titled The Terror of Cosmic Loneliness and it dropped today via OVNI/Turnstile. According to Pitchfork, the album was recorded in five hours after just five days of rehearsal. Fucking amazing! Check out one of my favorite tracks off the LP titled "In A House With No Mirrors (You'll Never Get Old)" and pick this album up!
