About this album

Cosmogramma is an album by Flying Lotus, released on May 3, 2010, on Warp Records. The title comes from an incident when he was listening to an Ashram lecture from his great-aunt Alice Coltrane and he misheard the words “cosmic drama” as cosmogramma.

The album was awarded the top spot in Exclaim! Magazine’s annual ranking of Electronic albums. Dimitri Nasrallah writes of Flying Lotus, “In the five years since he first appeared on the scene, the Los Angeles native’s talents have grown in such leaps and bounds that he now finds himself pioneering a full-blown West-Coast beats renaissance. ” More recently, it was ranked the 14th best album of 2010 by Pitchfork Media and #1 album of the year at the Gilles Peterson World Wide Awards 2011. The song “…And The World Laughs With You” was featured in the HBO TV series True Blood (season 4, episode 2).

    Great experimental electronica! First time I heard Flying Lotus was at a friend's house, and I wanted to be cool like all the other people there, so I started listening to this.

    Experience. That's it. I just can't say if there's something out there more beautiful and breathtaking as this album.

    aside from this lp being short yet sweet, noisy yet bold, it's just so damn fun to listen to as well! i can't help but think that flylo had a blast making cosmogramma as much as us listeners had a blast giving it the opportunity to enter our ear canals.

    One of the best albums of the 2010s so far, of any genre.

    a musical cosmic journey. the beginning of clock catcher is your spaceship taking off. by the end of the album you're blastin' thru the edges of the milky way galaxy...

    The album art is almost as cool as the music. And the music is pretty damn cool.

    Outrageously adventurous album. So loaded and intense, it's almost bound to throw you off the first time your hear it, I think.
