Both aficionados of Adult Swim, revered electronic producer Flying Lotus and Odd Future’s highly-regarded lyricist Earl Sweatshirt come together for their first collaboration, “Between Friends”. The title isn’t far wrong, as FlyLo’s gentle boom bap sound bed sets ups Earl’s dexterous delivery for its potentially perfect counterpart (read: potential). Instead of going down the traditional route, however, the teen spitter engages in lyrical dialogue with an unidentified guest called Captain Murphy. The final product is a little underwhelming, but Juno Leed’s sublime instrumental warrants time in your ears. Stream the track below and download it for free via AdultSwim.com.
