new music: afropunk alum flying lotus delivers lurching, diabolical single “crowned” as alter ego captain murphy

September 29, 2016

Flying Lotus is presently one of the most enigmatic names in music. To further his brand of obscurity and mystery, he has been releasing music under the moniker Captain Murphy since 2012, each time creating an even more mystifying legacy for himself. ‘Crowned’ is a song that fits well within this storyline–it’s a low frequency, stratospheric track, with vocals that sound part possessed and part seductive. The track was released via Adult Swim Singles, which has been releasing a lot of intensely underrated music in the past year or so, and this track is no different. The grave lyrics and hypnotic delivery make for an eerie, but enjoyable experience. Streaming of ‘Crowned’ is available below.
