Thundercat, the LA-based musician signed to Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label, has been running all over New York City this past week. Last Wednesday, he played with ?uestlove, Andrew WK, Kim Gordon, and many other all-star musicians, as part of Red Bull Music Academy's A Night of Improvised Round Robin Duets. Then he opened for Flying Lotus at Terminal 5 on Sunday and Monday nights. And he'll be hanging around RBMA HQ for the next few days as a studio mentor before hitting the road for some tour dates with his label boss, and RBMA alum Teebs.
Today, Thundercat drops an elatedly thumping slab of intricate cosmic funk, called 'Oh Sheit It's X.' It's the second single from his upcoming album, 'Apocalypse,' out June 4 digitally and June 9 physically via Brainfeeder. An apocalypse has never sounded so good.
