Mystics gotta stick together. The cerebral, exploratory nature of Flying Lotus' beatmaking might help explain why Radiohead's Thom Yorke is reprising his guest appearance from 2010's Cosmogramma on follow-up Until the Quiet Comes (out October 2 in North American and a day earlier elsewhere on Warp Records). But FlyLo maestro Steven Ellison and neo-soul survivor Erykah Badu share a bond in the way they graft futuristic sonics onto an ancient, hypnotic pulse. FlyLo has previously directed a video for Badu, and SPIN recently reported that the two have started work on a still-unfinished collaborative album. For now, check out their Until the Quiet Comes team-up, "See Thru to U," a breezily jazzy, fairly abstract freak-out that's heavy on cymbals, nimble acoustic bass, and Rhodes-like organs. "I know, I know, I know," Badu intones. For all of us humble seekers still hoping to understand, it could be a long wait until fall.
