The House of Flying Lotus

Flying Lotus ticks a lot of boxes. Signed to Warp, famous old jazz relatives, media comparisons to Prefuse, J Dilla & Madlib amongst others ... The plain facts of the case are that the chap probably couldn't help being cool if he tried, so let's try not to judge him too harshly for it. Accepting Los Angeles, released this year, with no preconceptions will reward repeated listens. The album has a dense matted undergrowth of beats with shades of jazz and electronica that show off different facets on every listen ... Take two tracks and judge for yourself.

Camel - Flying Lotus

Comet Course - Flying Lotus

Play the game while you're fannying about doing nowt online ... It's both diverting and aesthetically pleasing.
