Where Have all the 00s Giants Gone?

The bands that made musical history either side of the turn of the century have seemingly receded behind the clamouring mass of home-based music production since the computer became a household object in around 2005.
So where have they been, those bands that you once loved and more importantly what have they been making? Telegraph published the top 100 songs that define the noughties, just at the end of the decade while NME decided to look at the best 100 albums for that period even as listening to entire album became less an dless the norm .
Many have developed a doleful, more minimal sound, perhaps as a backlash against the aforementioned clamour. None more so than Massive Attack who's 5th album Heligoland of 2010 certified Gold in the UK, which retains their original sound, with less flourish and freer form. This track, Girl I Love You, is my favourite. It features some kooky cymbal action almost in the foreground which later descends into an almost avant garde dissonant wind section towards the end. Lovely.
