Looking Forward: Flying Lotus’s Until the Quiet Comes

Cosmogramma, Flying Lotus’s adventurous 2010 release felt, and still feels, like a sonic joyride, a fusion of jazz, pop, funk, and electronic music styles. Complex, playful, and sophisticated, Cosmogramma conjures 8-bit video games and Saturday morning cartoons as much as it does 1950s sci-fi, 1970s Impulse jazz, 1990s house—all while sounding entirely advanced, connected, soulful.

How do you follow up something like that? FlyLo calls Until the Quiet Comes “a collage of mystical states, dreams, sleep, and lullabies.”

The album, with contributions from Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat, and Thom Yorke, is set for release on October 2 from Warp Records. I expect great things.

Tracklist:
1. All In
2. Getting There feat. Niki Randa

Flying Lotus put on a great set at Pitchfok Festival this weekend. Bodes well for the new album. 

 

The other electronic artist that just owned it was Araabmuzik. Just sick sick beats. 

 

I was pretty crushed that Nicholas Jaar had set-up problems. They just couldn't get one of the band member's mics to work for his saxophone.

Oh, man, that's such a bummer.  I'm glad to hear, though, that Flying Lotus and Araabmuzik were good.
