Thundercat is go

maxresdefaultWhen a musician is good at what they do it’s a pleasure to hear but when they’re good at one they do and dress in an animal costume, well they are sublime

Multi-instrumentalist and singer Thundercat is such a dude. He and his band supported Flying Lotus at a gig in New York I was lucky to attend last year. His infectious and enthusiastic personality, along with his brilliant playing, sucks you in and reminds you what live performance is all about.

His EP The beyond/Where the Giants Roam is a more subtle and dreamy effort that his previous full-length outing ‘Apocalypse’ but loses none of the power and the originality I associate with him. I’m reminded a bit of Lonnie Liston Smith mid 80’s west coast outing ‘Dreams of Tomorrow’ which I used to listen to as a kid.

A powerful artist in it for the long haul.
