Flying Lotus at Sundance Film Festival in 2017
Flying Lotus' New Stop-Motion "Post Requisite" Music Video, Album Tease
GRAMMY-nominated psychedelic jazz/experimental beats producer and Brainfeeder Records label boss Flying Lotus has shared a new mind-warping stop-motion music video for his song "Post Requisite," previously released via SoundCloud and used as the theme music to his freakish body-horror indie film, Kuso.
As Pitchfork reports, the video includes an exciting tease for FlyLo fans, as the accompanying description text on the producer's YouTube channel briefly read, "Flying Lotus is currently finishing his next studio album on Warp." The description text was subsequently edited and the mention of the album was removed hours later, though fans can be seen discussing the album tease in the comment section below the video.
The as-yet unnamed project will be FlyLo's first since his acclaimed 2014 LP, You're Dead!, a project he wrote and recorded alongside longtime collaborator and GRAMMY-winning bass virtuoso Thundercat, with the stated intention of making "the fastest, hardest, most intense jazz record."
Additional details about his new album are nonexistent beyond today's brief tease via the "Post Requisite" video, but FlyLo's past statements about his approach to writing and recording new music will undoubtedly remain the record's guiding principle: "I'd rather put something out that's completely unique than try to do something that's been done before."
