Hey, remember that Flying Lotus guy who had beat junkies swooning throughout 2010? Well he disappeared for a little bit, doing some sporadic touring, producing and mixing over the two years since his last album, Cosmogramma, came out. But you probably knew that, which is why you’ll be happy to know that Adult Swim brought him and Earl Sweatshirt together to do a track called “Between Friends.” Between you and me, this is some righteous stuff. There’s some sort of odd xylophone and creepy, ’50s elevator music ambiance and a lethargically capable Earl and some guy named Captain Murphy who sounds like Earl’s friend Tyler.
We’re not friends, but I figured I’d share this with you because, well, FlyLo’s back and that’s neat. But be a friend of FlyLo and snag his upcoming album, Until the Quiet Comes, October 2.
Stream the track below before downloading directly from Adult Swim.
