[Hey everybody! Sarabeth here with a new feature that, quite frankly, I'm stoked about. Each week I'll be bringing you an album that I feel is particularly awesome in the hopes of building iTunes libraries everywhere! It could be something new, old, hugely popular or fairly unknown, so keep checking back for our suggestions to awesome-ify your music collection.]
The temperature is finally starting to drop here in Texas so to say TTFN to those hot days by the pool, I thought I would kick things off with my favorite album of the summer: Plastic Beach.
This was constantly playing in my car on my road trips this summer and for good reason; it’s an amazing album. I love Gorillaz because you can get so many different feels and sounds on one album, yet it all goes together so perfectly.
About the band:
Gorillaz isn’t so much of a band as it is a huge collaboration. It’s the brain child of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett that was started in 1998 in England. The “band” is made up of fictional characters 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs

Why you should listen to it:
Like I said before, this is a great album to listen to while driving. The fast rhythms and quick rhymes can make any long road trip seem shorter. It’ll be great for that long drive home for Thanksgiving
