Flying Lotus releases new video for 'Kill Your Co-Workers' (Warning: robot homicide involved)

Flying Lotus -- Kill Your Co-Workers from Warp Records on Vimeo

It's a rainy Monday in Los Angeles, and Flying Lotus has released an animated video for "Kill Your Co-Workers" that seems tailor-made for this kind of weather. No, the Beeple-directed video doesn't advocate murder, necessarily, although it does contain some cartoon violence. Specifically, one kind of robot goes on a rampage against another kind of robot -- although the victims seem very happy about the turn of events. The music? Shiny, happy, melodic synthesizer music reminiscent of Aphex Twin.
