What do David Byrne, Blackalicious, Chuck D, Tom Waits, KRS-One and The RZA all have in common? They’re all guesting on the new album by N.A.S.A.

N.A.S.A. stands for North America South America and is made up of two DJs (one from each of the Americas, go figure).

They’re gearin’ up for a tour of the States in support of the album, which drops today. They’ll be in the Twin Cities at the Triple Rock, March 6th.

All in all, this album has solid spots and pretty sick beats. The appearances don’t feel forced and it has a good flow. I’m also really impressed with the range of influences and styles present, but with the guests I guess I can’t be too surprised.

Peep a couple tracks from The Spirit Of Apollo
N.A.S.A. – Way Down (feat. RZA, Barbie Hatch & John Frusciante)

N.A.S.A. – Money (feat. David Byrne, Chuck D, Ras Congo, Seu Jorge & Z-Trip)

Buy The Spirit Of Apollo from Amazon
