Flying Lotus – Until The Quiet Comes [Video]

While Flying Lotus prepares Until The Quiet Comes for launch in a little under a months time we’re yet again teased, this time visually, with the bizarre yet beautiful short film by director Kahlil Joseph. From the three Flying Lotus tracks on show here; See Thru To U (feat. Erykah Badu), Hunger (feat. Niki Randa) and Getting There (feat. Niki Randa), it appears Steven Ellison has taken Flying Lotus to a whole new level with a thoroughly cinematic feel throughout that may or may not be aided by Josephs exciting and thought provoking visuals. It’s exciting and at a mere three minutes and fifty seconds, all too short.

Tame Impala – Elephant [Listen]

Aussie psychedelic rockers Tame Impala are back with the quite frankly brilliant Elephant. First single from Lonerism, the follow up to their brilliant 2010 debut Innerspeaker, it’s chugging riffs, driving rhythm, seriously infectious bassline, fuzzy warm production and epic jams (all in the space of three and a half minutes!) evoke some serious early Pink Floyd vibes and even, as Martin pointed out to me across the office, hints of a heavier Beatles in there – If you really imagine, you can hear John Lennon in those vocals. [sorry, couldn’t resist.] It doesn’t stray from the sound they forged previously but they’re definitely back with a bang. It’s classic production and ethos meet a modern energy and style that really no one else manages like Tame Impala do. Elephant is a big tune and a great way to bring in the new album, no question about that.

Elephant is out now; available in all the usual places, and full-length Lonerism follows on October 5th (Australia) / October 8th (United Kingdom) / October 9th (United States). Preorder links can be found over on their website. Track listing is as follows.

Hidden Orchestra announce new album ‘Archipelago’ + Listen to new single ‘Vorka’ [News]

Update: The debut single from Archipelago has since been debuted on www.thelineofbestfit.com. It’s an upbeat and slightly more playful sound for the Hidden Orchestra yet retains the sweeping cinematic feel of their debut and live shows. The single is officially out in September, in the mean time have a listen on Soundcloud.

Original Story:

Hidden Orchestra have announced ‘Archipelago’ as the follow up to their inspired 2010 debut Nightwalks. It’s due October 1st on Tru Thoughts, which is tantalisingly close yet so very far…

Sadly there are no audio samples as yet. In the mean time check out Footsteps from the debut Nightwalks. Hidden Orchestra’s sound can be described as a sweeping,emotional and incredibly cinematic experience with strong jazz and classical influences layer with organic sampling.

On a side note, I’m particularly fond of the continuity between artwork which comes courtesy of Norman Ackroyd.
