The funkiest four-string player in LA right now, Thundercat, is about to release his sophomore album Apocalypse digitally on June 4th (July 9th on CD/LP), featuring production from his Brain Feeder lablemate Flying Lotus.
The two already hooked up on the jukey R&B jam “Heartbreaks + Setbacks”, now they turn it up and get it on the good foot with “Oh Shiet It’s X”. It’s got Bootsy bass, space synths, and they definitely make their funk the P-funk (T-funk?). Happy Tuesday it’s time to get down.
FlyLo and Thundercat resume their joint tour next week in Boston — those dates below.
