Thundercat – neé Stephen Bruner – is one of Los Angeles’ most talented artists. A multi-instrumentalist, the singer/producer/bass slinger has not only been a major force behind the soundscape of Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp A Butterfly but is an active member of the West Coast’s neo-revivalist music scene. However, he has largely remained quiet on the solo front since the release of his 2013 album Apocalypse, and with an ever-growing legion of fans he has only heightened expectations for its long-overdue follow-up project.
Today (June 22nd) Thundercat has finally revealed that new project, The Beyond: Where The Giants Roam. A six-track “mini-LP,” the too-short release (seriously, you can listen to the entire thing faster than you can watch an episode of Family Guy) is the perfect musical vacation throughout the sunny rays and peaceful waves of Thundercat’s mind. Punctuated by the Isley Brothers-inspired “Them Changes,” produced by Flying Lotus,” Where The Giants Roam continues this amazing stretch of great music in 2015. Listen below.
