Flying Lotus, in association with Warp Records, has recruited Frodo Baggins himself, Elijah Wood, for the video for "Tiny Tortures," taken from his tremendous new album Until the Quiet Comes.

The David Lenandowsky-directed video is a cinematic portrait of the transformative nature of Flying Lotus, who collides the real and the surreal through kinetic soundscapes. Enduring the acid-tinged hallucinations of the digital-age, this slow-motion trip explores the relationship between humans and machines. As objects move and float, we enter a visual dream world – the culmination of Flying Lotus' vivid songwriting and Lenandowsky's surreal aesthetic. This noir nighttime fantasia – more short film than video – stars actor Elijah Wood.  

Flying Lotus has spent the last three months on tour supporting the fantastically reviewed and received album Until The Quiet Comes. Last Month, Flying Lotus sold out New York’s Terminal 5 and has played dozens of sold out shows across the US. Expect more Flying Lotus live dates in 2013.
