Until The Quiet Comes - WARP
FILTER Grade: 90%

Dreams are an incorporeal and disheveled tangle of the mundane, strange and awe-inspiring experiences humans haul through life. Most slip past our purview upon waking, like mice scurrying away from a livid chef. Steven Ellison (aka Flying Lotus) manages to ensnare 18 night visions on his latest psych-bass masterwork, Until the Quiet Comes. Returning collaborators Thom Yorke, Erykah Badu, Thundercat, Niki Randa and Laura Darlington populate this lush, genre-less experiment, but FlyLo is the musical wizard at the center of it all. Almost every track slipstreams into the next. At any time these bass-centric marvels can be vaporous and angelic or menacing and silhouetted. Such musical sleight of hand deserves approbation of the highest order.
