Flying Lotus & Thundercat add some layers to Kanye West's "Black Skinhead", which is now further caught in my head after that new phone commercial that's always on. Ha! I can't even remember the brand for the phone. Kanye wins again.
Seriously though, I like the subtle touches that Flying Lotus & Thundercat did to this one — part of a large .zip file of unreleased songs and remixes they dropped yesterday after Lotus hit 300K followers. When we get there, I'll do the same @gowherehiphop ;)
Exciting news for everyone who has a ticket to the Yeezus Tour warm for later this fall: Flying Lotus is helping out Kendrick's show, and for those who are familiar with Lotus live, it looks like we'll be in for even more of a show when Kendrick opens up for Kanye. I've yet to see Lotus live, but have heard rave reviews second-hand from our own Who Dough (who called Lotus' set at SXSW his favorite). And hey, Kendrick's gotta match some of the theatrics that 'Ye will certainly have in store, right? This is a good thing people!

Captain Murphy aka Flying Lotus gets his creative juices flowing with this one. One of Adult Swims Single Series which is set to drop this Monday got leaked like any other great tracks would. Captain Murphys raper alter-ego goes and recruits Viktor Vaughn aka MF DOOM, Earl Sweatshirt, and well know Flying lotus collaborator Thundercat. Putting together a raunchy track with a villainy beat to go well with these artist. Excited to hear MF DOOM on a track again with Earl and two well respected producers/ artists. Take a listen and download it! Trust me, well worth it!
Dreams really do come true! Ever since I first laid ears on Earl Sweatshirt, of OFWGKTA fame, I've always been impressed by him, but also admired that he clearly took cues from one of my favorite rappers ever, MF DOOM. I would fantasize about a collaborative effort by the two emcees like a longshot daydream.
And now it seems this may be a reality? Consequence of Sound reports that in a recent DJ set, glitch extraordinaire Flying Lotus dropped a new track featuring verses by DOOM and Earl. CoS speculates this may be appearing on Earl's soon to be released LP "Doris." Let's hope so, and let's hope it's not the last we hear from the duo (trio?).
Check out the trailer for "An Oversimplification of Her Beauty," an indie film directed by Terence Nance that screened at Sundance Film Festival last year, among other places. Apparently, along the festival circuit, it caught the attention of Jay-Z, who is now co-executive producing a version of the film for a wider release. Also note the score by glitch-hop mastermind Flying Lotus.
According to Pitchfork, "An Oversimplification of Her Beauty" is part animated, part live-action that "documents the relationship between Terence and a lovely young woman as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic." By the looks of the trailer, it could be a much-needed breath of fresh air for Hollywood.
For now, the only dates for screenings are April 26 at Cinema Village in NYC, or May 17 at Downtown Independent in LA. Hopefully this film will ride the wave of buzz into many more theaters sometime soon.
