While I liked the concept of those three accompanying EPs to Flying Lotus’ Los Angeles album, I completely understand when an artists decides against upfront singles or remixes, in hope to get people to listen to the whole undiluted album. FlyLo kept it that way with Cosmogramma (there were Alt Takes though) and the new album Until The Quiet Comes will be treated equally – though that doesn’t mean there aren’t any teasers. Maybe it was his own past as a film student that lead to the making of this short film directed by Kahlil Joseph, featuring music from the album.
Until The Quiet Comes will be out on all formats on October 2, 2012. It’s available for pre-order from Bleep.
