Brainfeeder man, bass player Thundercat has dropped a new album, Apocalypse, which is doing it for a lot of people, me included. His tribute to Austin Peralta, keyboard wiz’ and label mate who recently passed away, is as one would expect, delicate and touching, a beautiful thing, as it moves into clockwork like a heartbeat with exploratory fretwork nailing down the sentiment. Not content to hide behind the bass, our man steps to the microphone, passing on messages conveying a faith that is beyond a book.
A documentary series called Off Main St. opens the door on what and who is Thundercat.
If you do bass with your coffee or tea then the debut album from Thundercat is, if not a must, then at least one listen. Who is this mf Thundercat? Check your Erykah Badu collection, and also Suicidal Tendencies. Also the lasted releases from the album’s producer, Flying Lotus. Good enough for ya?
