ROCKET JUICE & THE MOON / Rocket Juice & The Moon [2012]

Rocket Juice & The Moon consists of Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Nigerian funk drummer Tony Allen and a host of guest vocalists including Erykah Badu, Thundercat & M.anifest. 
Their self-titled 2012 album is a blend of dub, afro-funk and hip-hop in which neither member really takes center stage and instead organically plays off each other sounding like a relaxed jam album.  It does get a little too noodly after awhile and had they cut it down to an EP it would been easily been a 5 star.  Nevertheless it still make an awesome patio party album.
