Disregard the rumors that this is a tribute to Elaine Benes’ boyfriend, David Putty. Yet the mechanics remain sound. Enter ethereal dancing robot music. Not to be confused with the sad robot twerk waltzes of Future and/or the Drakebot 3000. The loose concept surrounding Flying Lotus’ fourth album (queue Mad Rapper clip)  is that it’s intended to soundtrack the dreams of childhood. So it is about the levitation of the innocent, the good and bad that creeps into your subconscious after 12, the stuff that slips away when you smoke yourself to sleep every night.  Maybe just think of it as Little Nemo goes to Swisherland.
