Video: "Mmmhmm (feat. Thundercat)" by Flying Lotus

As much as I hear technical skill, wide-eyed imagination and obsessive experimentation overflowing from Flying Lotus's Cosmogramma, it's a maddening work that I feel like I'll never figure out.  The lush sonic textures warrant a headphone listen, and yet the abrasive tones have me at a distance now matter how low I turn down the volume.  It's certainly the most challenging album I've heard all year, but amid the jungle  is the superb space odyssey of "Mmmhmm" featuring Thundercat.  The music video is exactly the kind of thing you'd expect to go along with this song.
