Hunter Thompson once said, “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” In this day and age, we need and consume music at an astounding pace. Our goal with these lists is not only to satiate your desire for new music, but to provide the right music to accomplish this. Our selection of the 10 best songs of the week is sure to do just that.
As if there isn’t enough noise surrounding his upcoming YOU’RE DEAD! LP, LA-beats hero Flying Lotus has dropped another online-traffic diverting teaser, “Coronus, The Terminator”. With gospel chorus vocals rising out from a subdued, amorphous atmosphere, the single seems to imagine heavenly voices reaching into the white limbo that surrounds your now-deceased soul: “There’s nowhere left to go, so I pray to save you.” Flylo’s familiar jazz basslines and shakers do find their way into the track, but “Coronus, The Terminator” exposes a more spiritual side (for lack of a better word) of the Brainfeeder boss that we’ve not really seen before.
