In our recent episode we took a deep long look at Flying Lotus’ 2014 release, the surreal and dizzying You’re Dead. Rather than a melancholy exercises in the meaning of loss, You’re Dead is a thrilling exploration of what the afterlife could be. It’s densely, at times ferociously so, packed with layers of acid jazz, trip hop, grime funk, and and experimental electronica. The sharp turns, unexpected transitions, and out of no where instrumental switch ups creates an experience with a kaleidoscopic array of tones. You’re Dead takes the spectrum of wonder, excitement, nerve racking, disorientation, and sheer terror, and smashes them all together in unpredictable ways. The album is strange enough to the point of alienation, but after repeated listening the themes of possibility and discovery manifest in every aspect of what is possibly FlyLo’s strangest album to date. Check out EP 9 for more of our thoughts and give it a listen yourself •
E FLOWER No. 4
Part 3 and last one from this patch. Running the Electribe through the various effects and the Loop Mangler. This is part four of my “E-Flower” series featuring the Flower Electronics Little Boy Blue and Jealous Heart this time with the Korg Electribe, Electro-Harmonix Memory Boy delay, Eventide Pitchfactor and Space Reverb. #ambientmusic#korg
I got up close and personal with some pretty gnarly seaweed that tried to take me back as a sacrifice. However, I still managed to get all the footage I’ve been wanting to get for an upcoming video. 😱🙌🏻🌊
Concert Review: Serpentwithfeet at The Echo - 7/17/18 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coming off of his great debut album Soil (which we reviewed earlier this year), Serpentwithfeet, aka Josiah Wise, captivated a sold out crowd in Echo Park with his one of a kind act. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To say that Wise’s performance was merely a concert does not begin to capture the experience that he delivers. Rather, his live performance is more along the lines of a one man show. Interspersed between playing songs from Soil — Wise freestyled over his beats and live piano melodies, read excerpts from his favorite poems, and shared anecdotes with the crowd from his past. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wise has the ability to transform a performance in front of 350 people into an intimate experience like very few acts I’ve seen and it’s primarily due to his canid openness or “fragility” (as he describes it) that he is able to connect so strongly with his audience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I’m starting a YouTube series that will basically be me trying things and spending money on marketing the band. It’ll be a hawt POV look at what works and what doesn’t in more or less real time. @andrewsappofficial had some...ideas about the title. Subscribe to our channel http://youtube.com/theoxfordcoma
