Stephen Bruner goes by Thundercat. Yet there's nothing corny or nostalgic about him. In fact, I couldn't imagine him soundtrack-ing a bunch of cat people engaging in mildly and awkwardly homoerotic adventures on a ravaged distant planet. Rather his contributions, as far as with Flying Lotus, are beds of bass lushness and a locomotive sense of melody.
Ripped from his upcoming album 'The Golden Age of Apolcalypse' due on Brainfeeder sometime not soon enough (or fall in English), Thundercat stays in his zone with this George Duke cover. Flying Lotus produced this and supposedly the entire album. So yes kill your co-worker...who thinks Flying Lotus is a traveling ninja carnival.
And Mr. Ellison, good sir that he is, treats us to his signature spaced-out keys and a few morsels from his ever expanding synth grab bag that he must have found in a bathroom store in the Outer Limits.
Say 'Hooooo!' and you're a turd.
