Album Stream: Flying Lotus' Cosmogramma

As first seen on Pitchfork, Cosmogramma -- the new album from DJ extraordinaire Flying Lotus -- is available as a full album stream at Flying Lotus' (FlyLo for the hip kids) MySpace.

The Japanese retail of the album -- as well as a one-track, promo CD-R -- hit the internet roughly a week ago, much to the delight of many (myself included).

Cosmogramma
has quickly leapt into the discussion for the year's best albums, and I can safely say that such praise is completely warranted. Flying Lotus (née Steven Ellison) has managed to craft his most ambitious and accessible album yet -- with a little help from guest artists including Laura Darlington, Thundercat and Thom Yorke.

Cosmogramma is due out on Warp May 4. Tracklisting is as follows:

01 - Clock Catcher
02 - Pickled!
03 - Nose Art
04 - Intro//A Cosmic Drama
05 - Zodiac Shit
06 - Computer Face//Pure Being
07 - ..And The World Laughs With You ft. Thom Yorke
08 - Arkestry
09 - Mmmhmm ft.Thundercat
10 - Do The Astral Plane
11 - Satelllliiiiiteee
12 - German Haircut
13 - Recoiled
14 - Dance Of The Pseudo Nymph
15 - Drips//Auntie's Harp
16 - Table Tennis ft. Laura Darlington
17 - Galaxy In Janaki

For my money, "Computer Face//Pure Being," "Mmmhmm" and "Do The Astral Plane" are the early standouts on the album -- but it's pretty pointless to pick favorites on an album that is as solid, front to back, as Cosmogramma

Don't take my word for it -- head on over to Flying Lotus' MySpace and hear for yourself.
