On October 2, Flying Lotus, one of LA's most inventive, instrumental hip-hoppers, will release his next LP: Until The Quiet Comes (Warp Records). Shortly after, he will take this record on tour all across the U.S., but for now, he keeps us entertained with new track, "Putty Boy Strut," and its accompanying animated video, created by Cyriak, a UK-based surrealistic animator.
Below you can listen to this sonically lighthearted and spunky track that has just as vibrant of a video to match. Watch what happens when a seemingly unassuming cyclops robot turns ravenous and begins gorging on skyscrapers and other mechanical objects. It's pretty awesome.
