I’m listening to Flying Lotus‘ new album, Until the Quiet Comes, right now. It won’t be released until next week, but it is streaming exclusively on NPR this week. So far, I dig it, but I’m only a couple tracks into the release. That, I suppose, is indication that this is an immediately likeable album.
Anyhow, Flying Lotus is making a bunch of appearances in L.A. and New York to mark the release of the album through the consistently solid label, Warp. The first of these engagements is at Amoeba Music in Hollywood on October 1. It’s a DJ set and record signing. The following day, he’ll be joining the Low End Theory crew for a Boiler Room L.A. event that will be streamed live beginning at 7 p.m. PST. There will be another Boiler Room event in New York on October 8, as well as appearances at Brooklyn Flea Record Fair (signing event, 10/6), Terminal Five (10/07), Apple Store SoHo (live talk and performance, 10/09), Villain (10/10) and East Village Radio (10/10). He’ll return to L.A. on 10/26 for a date at Club Nokia.
I’ve seen Flying Lotus at Low End Theory here in Los Angeles, as well as at San Diego Comic-Con of all places (he played Adult Swim’s The Venture Bros. party in 2011) and have always enjoyed his sets. Check him out if you have the chance.
Until the Quiet Comes is out on October 2. There will be a special collector’s edition version on 180 g vinyl in gatefold packaging. There’s also a less fancy, double-vinyl edition and a CD digipack.
