Last week, fans got Drunk to Thundercat’s third studio album. Now, while still nursing a musical hangover, we’re formally introduced to his older brother Ronald Bruner Jr. and his excellent debut album, Triumph.

A fellow GRAMMY winner, Bruner — who was a member of Suicidal Tendencies, and is also the brother of The Internet member Jameel Bruner — drops an album that is as eclectically diverse as Thundercat’s. Composed alongside Kamasi Washington’s 2015 debut album The Epic, the eleven-track project is described as “a direct result of working with century defining artists such as Stanley Clarke, Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Wayne Shorter, Prince, Chaka Khan, Q-Tip, Kenny Garrett and Stevie Wonder.” With features from George Duke, Mac Miller, Thundercat and more, the project can be streamed below.
