This dark and shadowy video fits "Killing Joke" pretty perfectly. The is features samples from The Dark Knight (the title of the song is also a graphic novel about Batman), a haunting female vocal and an all around omnius vibe. Captain Murphy aka Flying Lotus aka Steve Ellison stays in character and never reveals himself, only adding to the foreboding atmosphere. Good stuff.

"Killing Joke" is on his recent Duality mixtape, which is available for free here as a stream and a download. There is also a video accompanying the entire album stream which is incredibly not safe for work at times but is never boring, it's just probably not too good for the squeamish.

The mixtape itself is fantastic and features guest turns from the likes of Earl Sweatshirt and Just Blaze and makes you wonder why FlyLo didn't do this sooner, considering his frustrations with getting more mainstream hip hop work.
