Rocket Juice and the Moon

Convened by high-concept ADD multitasker Damon Albarn, this Afro-futurist jam session adds roiling rhythms from 71-year-old drummer Tony Allen – known for the immortal grooves he cut with Fela Kuti in the Seventies – to corroded space-age keyboards (Albarn) and low-gravity bass lines (Flea). The group offers rides to a crew of collaborators. Erykah Badu gets cyborg-y (see "Hey, Shooter"); Ghanian rapper M.anifest and Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara represent; techno legend Mark Ernestus mixes. The results may be the most forward-looking music you hear all year.
