Chicago youth brigade Twin Peaks has released a music video for “I Found A New Way,” directed by Ryan Ohm. The new video features intensely nostalgic vibes a-plenty, and may recall the coming-of-age classic The Sandlot. Root for the boys as they take on the evil red team!
Twin Peaks will be taking to the road to celebrate the release of Wild Onion (out now on Grand Jury), with a headline tour that includes a stop at FYF Fest next week, and a show at The Echo on November 12th.
Flying Lotus has revealed a video teaser for his upcoming new release You’re Dead! LP, due out October 7th on Warp Records.
You’re Dead! is a shamanic pilgrimage into the psychedelic unknown of the infinite afterlife. A sonic, visual and metaphysical fusion of technological innovation and technical virtuosity that amounts to a transcendent, mind-expanding plasm that could only exist between our world and another. This release features a stellar supporting cast of Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Captain Murphy, Snoop Dogg, Angel Deradoorian, Thundercat, Niki Randa, alongside mindblowing original artwork by Japanese comic book artist Shintaro Kago. As Lotus explains:
The album isnt about the end, it’s really the beginning. It’s a celebration of the next experience. It’s the transition and the confusion. It’s not hey you’re dead. It’s hey you’re dead!”
Be sure to catch Flying Lotus at FYF Fest this year on Sunday, August 24th at LA Sports Arena & Expo Park.
