If you aren’t familiar with Flying Lotus then get familiar. But no matter what, you can begin to know his rapping alter ego, Captain Murphy. With a sound much like Tyler the Creator and his OF conglomerate, he strikes a very interesting note. Creative as anything or anybody you can possibly imagine, Captain Murphy raps along with FlyLo’s Adult Swim style production work. Dark, trippy, and awesome, Captain Murphy is making his return along with the release of FlyLo’s You’re Dead album that is set to release October 7th via Warp Records. Here is the short video that is absolutely nuts to get you hype on Captain Murphy. Noisey has said its soundscape involves snippets from Flying Lotus’s new work. I love it all in the weirdest of ways.
Tomorrow marks the first day of Buku Music and Art Project in New Orleans, LA. Premiered in 2012 by Winter Circle Productions, the Buku Music + Art Project has established itself as the premier progressive music and arts festival in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region. For those tired of the mega-festival and wanting an intimate setting with close stage views and clear/loud audio, BUKU fills that void. The line up this year is pretty dope, check after the jump for artist previews and the schedule.
