Flying Lotus: seventh EP synth action

Flying Lotus has been good to us in 2010. A difficult third album that moved his sound into a far frontier of experimentation, plus a collaboration with droop-eyed Radioheader Thom Yorke.

Ticking like a clockmaker's shop floating on Saturn's rings, his last track MmmHmm was a dreamy haze of spaced-out vocals, mechanical swoops and skewed time signatures. Try watching the remarkable video on mute with the Benny Hill theme tune on your stereo. Does it work? Nah, didn't think so.

And now FlyLo's winding in the craziness for a new EP, his seventh since he first started releasing on Warp Records in 2007.

Pattern+Grid World will be out in September and will be, suggests the label, a little less high concept and a little more synth action.

Plug your ears into one of the tracks here:
