Not sure how I missed this yesterday over at Stereogum, but the very bizarre “supergroup” comprised of Damon Albarn, Flea, and Tony Allen released the first taste of what its forthcoming full-length might sound like. And, contrary to what that absurd moniker might lead you to believe, it is not terrible. Not terrible at all. The first single features Erykah Badu on vocals, and it’s a spaced-out-funk-jam held together by Flea’s (surprisingly) inoffensive slap bass groove. Either my man-crush on Damon Albarn runs slightly deeper than I had heretofore been aware, or this is quite possibly good.
The group’s proper self-titled album is out March 27, 2012 via Albarn’s Honest Jons label.
