Flying Lotus - "Coronus, the Terminator" (Stream)

We're never ones to shy away from the fringey goodness of producer Steven Ellison, known throughout all the best circles as Flying Lotus. His new album, You're Dead!, drops October 2nd, FlyLo's 31st birthday. Today, he just released another song from the album, the smooth, thumping "Coronus, the Terminator". One can just picture where this track fits in the overall groove that You're Dead! is sure to provide. This work seemingly started as a jazz fusion album, though as is prone with Flying Lotus, grew into something much larger than this one idea. The samples dropped so far indicate as such and it's looking like yet another album from Ellison that certainly won't disappoint. The album which features bassist Thundercat (duh), Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Laura Darlington, Kimbra, Snoop Dogg, and others is out October 7 on Warp Records. Check a stream of "Coronus, the Terminator" after the jump.
