Out of all the artists on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, The Gaslamp Killer is the only one who makes music that sounds like he feeds on brains. Check the cover: half man, half machine, the mustache and mane shrouded in the darkness. We trippy.
I’m working on a long feature about Willie the Kid, so no need to cannibalize myself. Just know that Breakthrough (Sept. 18) is a snarling beast– Black Sabbath if Ozzy wanted bass not bats. “Impulse” finds GLK and Daedelus indulging their weird side, which might be their normal side. It’s the eerie and raw, ideal music to rip someone’s fucking face off and then meditate afterwards.
