Gorillaz Plastic Beach streaming on NPR!

The record doesn’t hit stores until next Tuesday, but you can listen to Plastic Beach in its entirety on NPR.  http://bit.ly/bpjwMe  As the day wore on I noticed an increasing number of tweets regarding this album stream.  Just how popular is this cartoon band in the U.S.A.?

According to Nielsen SoundScan, Gorillaz’ self-titled 2000 debut has sold 1.9 million U.S. copies while 2005’s “Demon Days” scanned 2.2 million.  Wow!  With numbers like these one can only hope that a proper tour will reach these shores.  Gorillaz only current U.S. tour date is in April at Coachella.
