It's been a minute since we've heard from Los Angeles' shining beat-music beacon, Flying Lotus, but the wait was worth it. Above you can watch the video for "Phatasm," an eerily gorgeous Until the Quiet Comes cut that finds the Long Lost's Laura Darlington on guest vocals. Lush keys and synths meet warm bass-lines, stirring strings, and rattling percussion as the clip opens on a strange desert scene. Filmed in New Zealand by Markus Hofko (the Bow), the beautiful short follows two odd characters as they traverse a dusty panorama. One looks not unlike that mop-dog from the cover of Beck's Odelay (crossed with something more Star Wars-ian) and the other holds a human form, but hides something else beneath his mummy's rags. Enjoy above, and pick up Until the Quiet Comes via Warp if you haven't. Flying Lotus also recently let loose a slew of lost songs called Ideas+drafts+loops.
