Permit us some name dropping: Flying Lotus, Suicidal Tendencies, Erykah Badu, Kamasi Washington, Kendrick Lamar. It could be worse when naming references. For years Thundercats played with the greatest, but he’s stepping out into the limelight once more and brings some 70’s jazz fusion to the stage. Its somewhere in between Stevie Wonder and Sun Ra. Bass loving grooves pulsating through intergalactic melodies, effortlessly, weightless and drenched in soulful funk claiming new territory.
“The third album from bassist/songwriter Thundercat is whimsical and somber, funny and meaningful, sometimes all at once. Drunk’s oddball soul confronts the challenge of just trying to live life. ”
