About this album

2010’s Cosmogramma was a watershed moment for experimental producer Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus. At no point in his relatively short career had the California native sounded so fidgety and restless. Despite the pressure, Cosmogramma was a refreshingly dynamic take on jazz, techno and electro-soul, and a highlight in Ellison’s already remarkable discography.

Until the Quiet Comes is amazing for different reasons. For one, it’s much more accessible than its predecessor, though it contains glitches typical of a Flying Lotus recording, with booming bass drums supplanted by edgy synths. But while his previous work is bright and bouncy, this set is ambient and nocturnal. It’s a wistful journey through a mystical dream world that only he could construct.

And he seems quite comfortable there. After Cosmogramma was snubbed in 2010’s Grammy category for Best Electronic/Dance album, Lotus called the awards process “a joke” on Twitter. Surely, he had a right to be disturbed, since the album was an all-in effort. Maybe that’s why Until the Quiet Comes is so streamlined. While traces of anxiety remain, there’s an overriding sense of tranquillity permeating this record.

Take a song like Getting There, for instance. It carries the percussive knock of a hip hop tune without the rhymes; instead, guest vocalist Niki Randa hums angelically amongst the track’s twinkling chimes.

    One of those albums that demands you listen from front to back. Really the only songs I consider *occasionally* skippable are "Sultan's Request" and "The Nightcaller"...but those tracks are still fire. Also, if you haven't had the pleasure of listening to this one on vinyl, I can't recommend that enough. Best album of 2012 for me.

    Really nice. Although there are some moments which seem too plain for the whole concept of being fully intricated, it's a real experience listening to this. I really like this layered soundscapes confronting clear beats with psychedelic sounds.

    I love FlyLo and UTQC is his best in my opinion. His albums have the feeling of being a complete composition... not just songs. Every time I hear one song I want to listen to the entire album... so unlike most of the music I normally listen to.

    "This one definitely takes several listens to truly sink in but when it does, man, does it sink in. The mid-album, five song stretch from Putty Boy Strut to The Nightcaller is beyond words to me." couldn't agree more!!

    This one definitely takes several listens to truly sink in but when it does, man, does it sink in. The mid-album, five song stretch from Putty Boy Strut to The Nightcaller is beyond words to me.
