Album Review by Neud Kiros
Steven Ellison, known as Flying Lotus or by his rap persona, Captain Murphy, is one of the most intriguing artists out right now. He’s a pioneer of this new age that puts less emphasis on genre, and more on creating a journey for the listener to experience. His fifth album, “You’re Dead!”, is the latest example of the type of narrative that can be created through music. It’s a concept album that explores death and everything that it entails. His moody musings craft a standout piece that excellently balances the anticipation, fear, and sometimes, the beauty of death.
