Bleep is a column focusing on varying degrees of electronic music news, videos and MP3s. For this week, I'm tired of some forerunning trends in glitched out electronica that often possesses, I feel, little to no human qualities! Instead, I will be focusing on electronically-minded musicians who build their work primarily off manipulations of analog sounds. Most recently, such individuals who have captured my heart have included Co La and Kone; now, a submission from the unknown Glass Boy and the epic Flying Lotus both fall under this same heading. This mixture of soulful passion with experimental electronics -- not just in an intentional sense on the part of the artist, but in an aural sense that translates to the listener -- is what's highlighted in this post. (That and a new Lindstrøm track!)
Flying Lotus' latest, "See Thru To U", comes from his upcoming album, Until The Quiet Comes, which drops October 2nd. Erykah Badu is featured on the track, and the album sees other guest stars like Niki Randa, Thundercat, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, and most famously Thom Yorke of Radiohead. With such a lineup and such a powerful track record, Until The Quiet Comes is pretty much guaranteed to be sick as all hell, with killer artwork to boot.
After the jump, you can stream the first album single "See Thru To U", check out a full list of tour dates, learn more about the special versions of the vinyl, and hear his Adult Swim series single.

Pulsating lights and synths reflect a matrix...
