All we can say is do not look directly into the visuals if you experience any form of seizures. While FlyLo's forthcoming release 'Cosmogramma' showcases an intense layering of high and low-range sounds, his SXSW set honed more into the low ranges, with beats taken on a fast yet shifting tone throughout. At many points, while flashes of strippers and body parts and kaleidoscope style squares and rectangles showered viewers' eyes, Flying Lotus himself was simulating the part of mad scientist onstage, literally.
At dramatic points where shifts were about to happen, he'd arch his back, raise his hands towards the ceiling, then finally dropping quickly onto his knob machine, where the song's structure would melt into something else, something new and usually something more dark and twisted than before.
Flying Lotus recently grabbed the ear of Thom Yorke, so much that the Radiohead frontman booked the California solo act as an opener for his forthcoming, cross-country trek starting on April 5 in New York. Should you be going to any of those shows, it wouldn't be crazy to think that Yorke could sit in with Flying Lotus on the song '...And the World Laughs With You,' which Yorke lent his vocal talents to.
'Cosmogramma' is out May 4 on Warp.
