Yes, that's right, Woke is a new collaborative project featuring three of the most adventurous musicians working at the moment: fractured fusion-influenced beat maker Flying Lotus, four-handed bass player and avant-R&B singer Thundercat, and former Digable Planets member and left-field hip-hop artist Shabazz Palaces. For their first single, "The Lavishments of Light Looking," debuted through late-night Cartoon Network programming block Adult Swim's "Singles" series, they've managed to bring on none other than George Clinton as a guest star. If you can imagine the sonic characteristics of all four artists coexisting on one track, well, that's what "The Lavishments of Light Looking" sounds like; but it's not a mess, and if anything the song augurs a fluid, promising long player from this supergroup. It's today's 12 O'Clock Track—listen to it below.
