Flying Lotus Added Spring Tour Dates With SXSW and Red Bull Music Academy

Flying Lotus has been flying all over the map as of late, with stops at last weekend's Snowball Music Festival and the recent Buku Music Festival, before heading off to SXSW today and on to more shows. He's just added more dates and will be on the road until the end of May in support of his latest album, the mind-blowing Until The Quiet Comes. The show even includes his "Layer 3" visuals: a three-dimensional projection that syncs with the music (check out the video on that).

The album is the follow up to the epic Cosmogramma, and it even launched with the Until the Quiet Comes short film by Kahlil Joseph, which you can watch below. It even won an award at the Sundance Film Festival.

"All this stylistic mingling and genre-melting has contributed significantly to shift music in a direction that makes intellectual leaps without forsaking the all-important heft of a bassline or unimpeded 'swing' of a drum beat – the same way so many masters of soul music have infused their songs for lovers and dancers with brilliant and heady subtext for decades," said Warp Records about the direction of Until The Quiet Comes.

Spacelab writer Alex Ramirez reviewed Until The Quiet Comes, calling it "a continuous journey as it seamlessly meanders through each song." Check out the full review.
