Flamagra mostly sounds like a hodgepodge of ideas FlyLo has already explored on previous efforts, and what surprises it does bring are hit-and-miss.
Experimental hip hop producer Flying Lotus surprised his fans on Wednesday with seven new tracks uploaded to his SoundCloud. Flying Lotus has not released a full-length musical project since his acclaimed 2014 album You’re Dead. His horror movie Kuso, which he directed, wrote and contributed music to, premiered at Sundance in 2017 and has become infamous for being one of the most disgusting movies ever made.
Six of these latest tracks are taken from his soundtrack for the short film Blade Runner Black Out 2022. The last one, “Choo Choo,” is an outtake from the recently released thriller Perfect. Listening to these tracks it’s easy to tell that they were written as a part of a film score, but there are hints of Flying Lotus’ signature style interspersed throughout.
Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat have united as WOKE! The abstract hip hop supergroup's first offering here features funk legend George Clinton and is a new entry in the Adult Swim Singles program. Enjoy!
