Gorgeously imaginative and wacky combo of live action and animated space-scapes for the second single from Flying Lotus's 'space-opera' Cosmogramma by the versatile and seriously inventive Kiwi team Special Problems.

Legendary bassist Thundercat, who contributes vocals and bass on the track, enters into an intergalactic embrace with the lovely 'plantwoman' as astral fragments orbit around them - then the SP guys start mixing up the styles. Very groovy indeed.
