News: Flying Lotus releases long-awaited new album ‘Until The Quiet Comes
Flying Lotus will release ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, the long-awaited follow-up to ‘Cosmogramma’.
Composed, according to FlyLo, as “a collage of mystical states, dreams, sleep and lullabies”, ‘Until the Quiet Comes’ has the distinct feel of this nocturnal trip. From the twitching descent into a subconscious state and the out-of-focus time-ether of the journey that follows, the sound is an unhinged, yet elegant evolution of the melodic and rhythmic interplay that is woven into the DNA of Flying Lotus’ aural personae. The album features guests Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat & Thom Yorke.
FlyLo’s recordings and live performances are the center of a musical web that stretches far from the vibrant sprawl of Los Angeles – whether it’s The Weeknd, Earl Sweatshirt or Venus Williams (!) joining him on-stage at various shows this year, or FlyLo spending some studio time with Black Hippy’s inimitable SchoolBoyQ.
All this stylistic mingling and genre-melting has contributed significantly to shift music in a direction that makes intellectual leaps without forsaking the all-important heft of a bassline or unimpeded ‘swing’ of a drum beat – the same way so many masters of soul music have infused their songs for lovers and dancers with brilliant and heady subtext for decades. ‘Until The Quiet Comes’ follows this tradition while clearing a path distinctly its own, which is a mark of a classic.
