Thundercat

thundercat meltwodn

Funk, R&B and punk all feed the surreal genius of virtuosic bassist and singer Stephen Bruner, alias Thundercat.

The LA native’s latest album, Drunk, is a 23-track epic journey into his often hilarious, sometimes dark mind.

A few friends join the Grammy winner along the way, including Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Wiz Khalifa, Kamasi Washington and Brainfeeder mastermind Flying Lotus.

The album was cited in countless ‘Best of 2017’ lists and was named the BBC 6 Music Recommends Album of the Year 2017.

Thundercat has released two other critically acclaimed full length albums on Brainfeeder – The Golden Age of Apocalypse and Apocalypse – as well as 2015 mini-album The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam.

In the past year he’s graced the stages of Coachella and Glastonbury as well as high-profile slots at the Hollywood Bowl and a memorable sold out show at New York’s Irving Park where Dave Chappelle made an impromptu appearance as his hype man.

Support comes from high-energy New York jazz trio Onyx Collective.

Review: Bestival @ Lulworth Estate (Dorset; Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th August 2018)

Friday The site was nicely spread out, but unlike mega festivals, walking from one side to another did not diminish too much energy or take too long. Unfortunately, the festival’s app didn’t want to show me the 2018 line-up – it instead rubbed in the fact that A Tribe Called…

Event Review: Jazz:Re:Found Festival (Turin, Italy; 29th November to 3rd December 2017)

Embraced by the Alps Mountains in the North-western area of Italy, Turin is a city marked by its aristocratic past and industrial history. This contrast best represents the city’s multiple facets: richness and poverty, innovation and tradition, history and modernity all living together in one place. This blend and mix…
