2015 Adult Swim Singles Program, Week 17: WOKE (Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat) ft. George Clinton – “The Lavishments of Light Looking”

Hey, everyone! RobBarracuda here, and it’s time to talk about the newest release from the Adult Swim Singles Program.

This week’s song is a real unexpected treat. The project featured is called WOKE, a group combining the forces of experimental hip-hop group Shabazz Palaces (who were featured on the compilation several weeks ago), jazz/psychedelic bassist Thundercat, who’s worked with artists ranging from Kendrick Lamar to Erykah Badu and even Suicidal Tendencies, and hip hop producer/Adult Swim favorite Flying Lotus. “The Lavishments of Light Looking” sees all of these forces working together magnificently, and even works in funk legend George Clinton. The song’s built around the spacey psychedelic vibes of Lotus’ production work, and everyone gets their chance to shine, adding plenty of great rapping and singing to the mix, and the beat’s complimented with some funky bass playing courtesy of Thundercat himself. Words can’t really do the song justice though, so I highly recommend listening to the song itself, which you can do down below, and of course you can download this and the other singles for free right here. Let us know what you think of the song down in the comments, and I’ll see you next week when the next single drops.
