FLYING LOTUS ANNOUNCES U.S TOUR DATES COSMOGRAMMA OUT MAY 4TH ON WARP RECORDS PLAYING WARP SXSW SHOWCASE MARCH 17TH
Flying Lotus is pleased to announce several U.S. tour dates prior to the release of his fantastic upcoming album, Cosmogramma. Warp Records will release Cosmogramma on May 4th, and Flying Lotus will be playing the Warp SXSW Showcase next month in Austin.
It s impossible to understate what Flying Lotus has created with Cosmogramma, since there is so much to unpack: The effortless musical cohesion of the historical avant-garde and the next chapter of futurism. The conversation at the post-hip-hop crossroads of two urban music traditions, American and British, and at the center of one of the most vibrant sound scenes on the globe today: the beat-and-bass-heavy corner of Los Angeles (of which FlyLo s Brainfeeder is a mainstay). The uncommonly natural musical communication between the physical world and the spiritual, one made personal and given a cohesive form. Even the funny smells, without the slightest whiff of self-importance.
Many artists strive for something grand and vast, but 26 year-old Steven Ellison actually brought it forth from his head and heart. To not dress it in the garb of the special does it a great disservice.
