More than a year has passed since Flying Lotus released his most recent album, Until the Quiet Comes, so the appearance of a new video for LP cut "Phantasm" comes as something of a surprise. That said, the piece certainly looks nice. Shot in New Zealand by Markus Hofko (a.k.a. The Bow), the clip pairs FlyLo's loungey, soul-flecked tune with a hazy, rock-strewn landscape and a pair of unusual characters. One is a light-based figure that intermittently wraps its luminescence, mummy-style, in black fabric, and the other is something like a human-sized tribble. In true Flying Lotus fashion, it's certainly "out there," yet there's something tender about these two beings and their journey across the desert. Watch the "Phantasm" video below.
