Review: Compared to the freeform styles of the Leave Talking 10', the star spot on Rocket Juice & The Moon's 'Manuela' by Erykah Badu drives the free-flowing funk of the supergroup (made up of Damon Albarn, Flea and Tony Allen) into a cheeky and mildly dubby pop nugget with a shuffly rhythm to it. Badu is on fine form as ever, lending her. Rocket Juice & The Moon comprises Damon Albarn, Tony Allen (the drummer from Fela Kuti's band), and Flea (from Red Hot Chilli peppers). The artwork was done by an artist in Nigeria, and the Afrobeat/Funk sound features a diverse array of artists from Erykah Badu, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Ghanaian rapper M.anifest, to Malian songstress (Fatoumata Diawara - check out her stunning 2011 Folk/Blues.
