Flying Lotus- Between Friends (ft. Earl Sweatshirt)
Posted by Andy Decelles
IS THIS HEAVEN?
The one and only Flying Lotus has teamed up with Earl Sweatshirt and the previously unheard Captain Murphy on an absolute gem of track. As one might aspect, Fly Lo's expertly crafted beats are a perfect compliment for Earl's complex flow. Earl's vocals are heavily processed; pitch shifting is used as an instrument in of itself to compliment intricate rhymes as they dodge in and out of jazzy sounds. Captain Murphy sounds a bit like Tyler (it's certainly not unusual for him to pose under alternative monikers). If it is, it's easily one of the best verses he's ever put out. It's hard for me to describe how excited I am by my favorite rapper and favorite producer collaborating on such a great track. Needless to say, I'm pretty stoked on this. Listen to the masterful "Between Friends" below.
