Mac Miller: superhero. Surely, a video for a Mac song produced by FlyLo wasn’t going to have a very conventional one. Is that Cory Haim?…Feldman? I don’t know which is which.
Had I not seen that one episode of Mac Miller‘s show on MTV where Flying Lotus was at his house party, I’d be pretty surprised by this pairing. “S.D.S. (Somebody Do Somethin’)” is the first single from Mac’s upcoming album, Watching Movies With The Sound Off.
Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time is the greatest series on television, but you knew that already. To prove the point: The music from the latest episode was composed by none other than Flying Lotus.
We haven’t seen or heard much from Captain Murphy since the “great reveal” and release of Duality, but Flying Lotus’ atypical alter ego is back with a new video for (personal favorite) “The Killing Joke”.
Moog, the legendary synthesizer manufacturers, has recently developed a new one called the Sub Phatty. To commemorate the occasion a prototype was given to Flying Lotus to experiment with. The end result is this song, “Such A Square” (download below). The track also got its own animated video by Adam Fuchs, “Moog Sub Phatty: New Machine for Living”.
New video for Flying Lotus‘ “Tiny Tortures” from his Until The Quiet Comes album, which should be deeply embedded into your psyche by now. Elijah Wood stars. You’re going to want to watch this at least twice. P.S. – Last night at a show, FlyLo “revealed” that he was Captain Murphy. I don’t buy it. I think he’s involved, the production sounds very much like his, but I refuse to believe that the vocals are his…or at least that they’re only his.
Easily in the top 10 of songs I’ve talked about/played/forced people to listen to in 2012, St. Joe Louis’ “Millenium Falcon” gets a much-deserved video: “Imagine Fear and Loathing meets Dr. Seuss through the minds of St. Joe Louis and you will understand the vision behind their latest video ‘Millennium Falcon’. ‘We tried to capture the energy and spirit of the song without being a shot for shot rendition of the song.’ Once we developed some of the elements the great guys over at A Nu Day Media captured the vibe and brought the vision to life.” Get the full St. Joe Lotus project here.
Fine…so I couldn’t get my hands on tickets to see Flying Lotus at Terminal 5 last night. Whatever! I’m not bitter (I’m extremely bitter). What I do have is the audio stream of his appearance on Diplo’s BBC radio show, which includes some previously unreleased stuff. I’ll even share it. Chumps. Damn kids with their concert tickets and advanced knowledge of things. Get off my lawn. Flying Lotus Feat.

Couldn’t ask for a better way to start this music week. After a batch of perception-bending singles, two great videos, and an oddly short set of preview clips, its finally time to hear Flying Lotus‘ Until the Quiet Comes. The album will be released on Oct. 1, but as always, NPR’s got you early.
