Who doesn’t love a dope supergroup??  Especially when that supergroup consists of folks that have such a prominent presence in music in their own right.  Damon Albarn (lead vocalist for Gorillaz), Flea (bassist for Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Tony Allen (drummer and musical director for Fela Kuti) have combined their melodic awesomeness to create funk band Rocket Juice and The Moon.  Blending funk, Afrobeat and jazz, “Hey Shooter” results in a fast-moving, psychedelic journey.  And of course, Badu’s laidback soulfulness just adds light to the trippy tune.

Rocket Juice and The Moon are set to release their self-titled album Rocket Juice & Moon on March 27.

    AMAAAAAZING SONG!! Might ucatally be my # 1, its ucatally my ring tone and people who never even heard of Erykah Badu are always like WOW when they hear it. I love AD 2000 and Didn’t Cha Know a lot as well. I saw her in concert last summer TWICE and would have gone a 3rd time if I could.

    I must say I’m a huge Badu fan as well. Probably more so than all of the above. She is definitely the eipmote of Soul music in my opinion and is very eclectic to say the least. Although the above weren’t some of my favorites, I definitely have a bunch that are always on deck for a Supremely Soulful’ groove. I recommend Other Side of The Game , Danger , Bump It , I Want You , Orange Moon , Honey , Window Seat , Apple Tree , No Love , Next Lifetime and I think you get the point!
