This Just In: Believe The Hype

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about the new Caribou and Flying Lotus albums. Of course you have – they’ve got the PR forces of legendary labels behind them. But if you follow “This Just In,” you know I don’t typically herald the things that already have the needed funding and logistics to thrive in fickle, consumerist record land. So why am I coming at you today with two albums that you already know about? Well, it’s because I know some of you might be quick to dismiss something you keep seeing/reading/hearing about all over the interwebs as being “all hype.” While that may be true in many (if not most) cases, the new efforts by Caribou and Flying Lotus are more than worth the hype. These are freakin’ incredible records! One, a smooth ambling house/r&b-tinged affair, the other, exercises in the outer limits of jazz/hip-hop/glitch-digital maximalism (with insane visuals to boot!). Check out some clips below and then grab a seat next to me on the hype machine. And if you still need further proof, you can catch Flying Lotus this weekend at III Points in Wynwood, and Caribou next month at Grand Central.
