Listening to Flying Lotus’ new album, Until The Quiet Comes, feels like coming up for air. His previous LP, Cosmogramma, was monolithic. Layering dueling sounds on top of each other in an endlessly busy display of talent. It was a difficult record, but once you found your way inside it, it was plenty rewarding. Until The Quiet Comes, on the other hand, is calmer. There’s room to breathe. It moves from free jazz to bass heavy sketches to songs anchored by guest vocalists like Erykah Badu and Thom Yorke. It’s not an easy album by any means, but listening to it, it feels like Flying Lotus’ most personal, internal album. An aural manifestation of what he loves and how he sees the world. Recently, I met up with him to talk about the album, living in LA and the importance of taking a vacation.
