Listen: Flying Lotus' “Coronus, The Terminator”

Flying Lotus You're Dead
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.

YOU’RE DEAD! is forthcoming on the 7th of October via Warp Records, but enthusiasts who can make it to Los Angeles for the night of September 23rd will be able to preview other selections from the album alongside “new music and visuals created by Shintaro Kago, strangelooptv and Timeboy (thefrequencymass)” at a Tumblr IRL event.
