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. Feat. guests Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat & Thom Yorke. UTQC is fueled by FlyLo's first ever full US Tour, multiple videos, creative visual assets and massive support from his ever-growing group of press and fans. Notable followers include Odd Future (Earl Sweatshirt collaboration with Adult Swim online now), Schoolboy Q (who's been in the studio) and rising super-producer Clams Casino.
Steven Ellison a.k.a. Flying Lotus (or FlyLo as he is called) got his start by crafting juicy, booming dubstep cuts for Cartoon Network to use in whichever way they deemed best (those commercials continue to impress and affect with every new idea).
Cosmogramma is an intricate, challenging record that fuses his loves– jazz, hip-hop, videogame sounds, IDM– into something unique. It's an album in the truest sense. Cosmogramma is conceived as a movement– bits of one song spill into the next, and its individual tracks make the most sense in the context of what surrounds them. In this sense, it feels almost like an avant-garde jazz piece, and so it takes more than a few listens to sink in– one or two spins and you're still at the tip of the iceberg.
Twenty twangy emotional rock instrumental adventures varying from energizing to dangerous to serene, led by guitars and synthesizers. The Flying Guitars album combines twang, rock-n-roll, surf guitar and classical themes into instrumental stories of adventure and excitement, told by guitars, synthesizers and percussion. "Insanitizers deploy their marvelous talent for the guitar to the interpretation of a modern vibe – what results is a completely novel experience of a genre you thought you knew and understood." – The Akademia. This album gives more melodies, more variety, more expressiveness, and more rocking-and-rolling.
Reissue with the latest 2017 remastering. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Earl Hines had many years of music under his belt when he cut this session in the mid 60s – yet his sense of creative improvisation was more than sharp enough to warrant the promise of the title! The set features Hines alone at the keyboard, in a wonderfully well-recorded setting – working this amazing magic on his solo performances, which really transform the tunes into something new entirely – piano explorations that almost make you feel like you're finding Earl in the back room of some small club, after hours – working out all sorts of new ideas, without having to worry about commercial considerations at all.
