Everyday Tuneage Best Albums of 2014
No. 6 – You’re Dead! by Flying Lotus
By far and away the best album from Flying Lotus yet, You’re Dead! is also the closest FlyLo comes to making a jazz album. Always one for heavily layering and blending an impressive concoction of genres, You’re Dead! works so well because of his laser focus on the topic of mortality and the range of emotions and questions that surround it. The results are tracks that fall everywhere between solemn to absurd– and through it all, Flying Lotus almost constantly strikes gold.
