Jam On It: Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Shabazz Places – “The Lavishments of Light Looking”

Music’s diabolical duo Flying Lotus and Thundercat link up with Seattle-based rap experimentalist Shabazz Palaces to announce the coming of a new project titled “WOKE.” The conglomerate dropped the first single, “The Lavishments of Light Looking” today as part of Adult Swim’s Singles series, finding good company among music from MF DOOM and Ghostface Killah’s DOOMSTARKS, Run the Jewels, Chromatics, Skrillex and others. The track itself is a multi-layer, breathable piece of music that sways under signature FlyLo lushness, Thundercat’s bass grounding, and a tidbit of funk from George Clinton’s guest feature that wraps beneath Shabazz flows to fill out the pockets in between. Check the track above and stay tuned for more details on WOKE.
