Adult Swim’s Singles Program series is the gift that keeps on giving.
Just over the course of the last year they’ve delivered singles from some of the best underground talents of late like Jlin, Tim Hecker, Thundercat, Washed Out, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Zola Jesus, Julia Holter, Heathered Pearls, and more. Now, Adult Swim is closing out its seventh-annual Singles Program series with a hot new track from Brainfeeder head honcho, Flying Lotus.
“Heroes Pt. 5” follows FlyLo’s seven new SoundCloud tracks, a Blade Runner short film score, and his grotesque directorial debut Kuso; a vile horror film Rolling Stone called “the grossest midnight movie of the last decade.” Maintaining the producer’s characteristically mind-melting modus operandi, “Heroes Pt. 5” uses a heady house filler with angelic synths sprinkled underneath. True to the off-kilter vibe FlyLo has tightly embraced over the years, “Heroes” features dialogue and sound effects from Dragonball Z, as Pitchfork originally pointed out.
