Flying Lotus – “Tiny Tortures” Video (Feat. Elijah Wood)

Flying Lotus’s musical productions are bizarre, inventive, dreamlike works, so it’s fitting that the video for “Tiny Tortures” (from FlyLo’s fantastic recent Until The Quiet Comes) matches the music in all those departments. Directed by David Lewandowski and starring the always-creepy Elijah Wood, the clip brings together the amorphous and beautiful song with cyborg-nightmare visuals worthy of Cronenberg. Check it out.

In other FlyLo news: When mysterious rapper Captain Murphy appeared on a Flying Lotus track alongside Earl Sweatshirt back in July, Corban and some commenters theorized that the unknown guest might in fact be Tyler, The Creator. Good guess! But totally wrong. At a show in Los Angeles last night, Flying Lotus revealed that HE is Captain Murphy. Yes, it’s true! And he also made available for free download the deluxe edition of Murphy’s debut Duality. Cop it here.


Until The Quiet Comes is out now via Warp.
