FlyLo's debut is an interesting piece of work, and showcases synth-heavy instrumentation and a very spacey atmosphere. The opener (also being the title-track) begins with some alien, spaceship-like sounds before catching fire on a strangely catchy synth line and thumping beat, making a fantastic start to the record. Though the album isn't as experimental as his later work, to say that it is without any experimentation is false. Take "Pet Monster Shotglass" for instance, with its weird basslines moving in amidst a constant swirl of glitchy synth work. And on the closer, "Unexpected Delight", we see FlyLo's affinity for jazz, as a middle-eastern sounding wind instruments and elegant piano lines accent Laura Darlington's voice excellently. Certainly a great debut, 1983 shows FlyLo's humble beginnings, but hints of what he would soon become as well.

4.0 excellentJared Floryan | October 7th 14

Flying Lotus delivers some good ol' electronically-powered experimentation on his debut album 1983, titled after the year of his birth. The bits and pieces of this record are short, but undeniably sweet and quite a trip even for non-stoners; quit possessing the mentality that you have to be high to enjoy this! Granted, hearing the Adult Swim bumper music in general could probably do that to you, but I swear there's more to it.

To call FlyLo an alien is an insult to FlyLo. He is... FlyLo.
