We won't refer to it as supergroup for fear of facing the wrath of Thom York (although we do think we could take him), but when you assemble a top-notch musical team that includes Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco, drummer Joey Waronker and producer Nigel Godrich, it's really hard to describe them any other way. The players, who were first enlisted by York to realize his solo record Eraser live, now have their own experimental electro album to wave, Amok, and hit the road in support. Barclays Center is the second stop on their North American jaunt, and with early word of their live gigs being grand, you may want to catch this talented conglomeration while you can.
