video: flying lotus – small moments (2012)

in true flylo fashion, he compiled a 1:30 long video of snippets from his upcoming album, until the quiet comes. the catch is they’re all so obscure, you couldn’t even begin to place a finger on where this album’s headed. that’s ok though, we get neat visuals and a way to grab the album in advance.

until the quiet comes drops october 1st.

Another mix for your summer
some things you know
some things you may not
