This fall has graced us with some of the finest electronic music album releases of the year, or dare I say, in the past decade. Within the past month Odesza, SBTRKT, Slow Magic, Gorgon City, Caribou, Aphex Twin, and yes, Flying Lotus have all released new albums that are all absolutely innovative in their own respects. Flying Lotus really outdoes himself this time around though, by sticking to his jazz-influenced background, incorporating electronic aesthetics that really help balance out this album. Some of the guests that appear on the album are Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Niki Randa and Thundercat.
