Thundercat – Heartbreaks + Setbacks

thundercat

I have an affinity for any man who knows how to don feathers — and in this case that man is Stephen Bruner, the bassist/vocalist  known as Thundercat. Co-written and co-produced by Flying Lotus, “Heartbreaks + Setbacks” is the first single off his new album Apocalypse, which comes out July 9th. The composition combines soulful lyrics with a sick bassline that “calls to mind the work of jazz greats like Charles Mingus and Jaco Pastorious, deftly weaving an intricate bass solo into a sonically dense synth-pop arrangement,” according to LiveForTheFunk. Check it out below.
