Flying Lotus Shares Thundercat, Brendon Small & Miguel Atwood-Ferguson-assisted "You and Your Friends Are Dead" & "North Star3" from You're Dead! Sessions (THUNDERDETH LOTUS?!!!??!)

It appears as though BRAINFEEDER founder, Los Angeles multi-instrumentalist, Experimental Hip-Hop producer, DJ, villainous rapper, and film-maker Steven Ellison AKA Flying Lotus AKA Captain Murphy AKA Kuso director steve. has been doing an Ideas+drafts+loops-style purge of his old hard drives recently; Ellison has upload a staggering seven previously unreleased tracks to his Flyinglotus Soundcloud page just this past week! FlyLo first uploaded a remix of Angelo Badalamentii's iconic "Twin Peaks Theme" and Queen-sampling "Night Grows Pale" this past Tuesday, May 16th. Then, came a whopping five tracks just one day later: Captain Murphy-helmed "Crowned," Miguel Atwood-Ferguson-assisted "LoveTrue Opening" and "LoveTrue Opening Alt1" from Alma Har'el's 2016 Netflix film of the same name, and two mysterious left-overs from You're Dead! (2014) credited to THUNDERDETH LOTUS... DETHKLOK-hashtagged "You and Your Friends Are Dead" with assists from Thundercat & Brendon Small and Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson & Brendon Small-featuring "North Star3."

Brendon Small is one of the co-creators behind both [adult swim]'s Home Movies and Metalocalypse, as well as the aforementioned show's "virtual" Death Metal band, Dethklok. Small additionally fronts his own similarly-minded Melodic Death Metal/Prog-Metal band called Brendon Small's Galaktikon with Dethklok members Gene Hoglan and Bryan Beller. Small, Hoglan, and Beller are currently working on a proper follow-up to Brendon Small's Galaktikon (2012) with producer Ulrich Wild that's being billed as "a Dethklok album [that] just can't be called Dethklok 'cause of rights." Drummer Gene Hoglan went on to explain, "if you love Dethklok, you will love this record. The lyrics, the music, and everything is Dethklok-styled." Thundercat recently unleashed his third album, "DRUNK," which featured numerous contributions from both Flying Lotus and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Brendon Small previously contributed guitar licks to "Turkey Dog Coma" and "Siren Song" from Flying Lotus' 2014 Warp Records album, You're Dead! It's currently unclear if and when "You and Your Friends Are Dead" and "North Star3" may appear on a proper release from a re-formed and fully-fleshed out THUNDERDETH LOTUS.
