In a straight ascent from Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead, and most recently Kendrick’s To Pimp A Butterfly and the amazing Kamasi Washington’s The Epic (still waiting for the wax!), Thundercat comes to the forefront once again in a follow-up to his 2013 LP, Apocalypse (which has hopefully seen a sharp increase in people copping it off the back of TPAB).
It’s a Brainfeeder release naturally, and sees Fly Lo jump on for co-production for a spacey jazz-funk six-tracker. Herbie Hancock even makes an appearance on Lone Wolf & Cub, plus contributions appear from Brainfeeder fam Kamasi, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Mono/Poly.
The wax is forthcoming, but cop the digital now.
To begin… Isleys!
