Forever a wildcat and wild card, Los Angeles' Thundercat is impossible to tame artistically. His 2011 solo debut The Golden Age of Apocalypse, co-produced by Flying Lotus, created a genre-blurring enigma of indie rock and jazz, with a touch of electronica. On Apocalypse-out on Brainfeeder Records June 4 digitally and via CD/LP on July 9-Thundercat brings a fusion of pop, soul, electronica, prog rock and funk into an unexplored dimension. He again pairs up with executive producer Flying Lotus to pull the veil back and reveal the simple truths of the cycle of life, for all its beauty and destruction. It's an album about loss and rebuilding, trying to gain something back, and capturing that moment of clarity where one finally finds feet back on the ground again.
There's already an Oscars buzz surrounding this movie.
