Check it Out -Plastic Beach, Gorillaz

Today’s new music profile is Plastic Beach by the Gorillaz.  The first thing I noticed about this project is the amount of “guest” talent that has contributed to the unique sound.  From Snoop Dogg, Mos Def and Lou Reed to  Paul Simon and The National Orchestra for Arabic Music, the sound of this album is new and fresh, yet familiar Gorillaz. Enjoy!
