Earlier this year Thundercat (long-standing member of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder family) won his first Grammy award for his contribution to ‘These Walls’ from Kendrick Lamar’s opus “To Pimp A Butterfly”. He also guested on Comedy Central’s “Why? With Hannibal Buress”; cult late-night talk show “The Eric André Show” and premiered the animated video for “Song For The Dead”
‘Bus In These Streets’ – a comedic ode to our dependence on technology – is the first new music from the virtuoso bassist and singer-songwriter since 2015’s The Beyond… Where The Giants Roam – a mini-album that featured the alt. anthem ‘Them Changes’ (10 million + streams worldwide). The track features Thundercat (vocals, bass); Louis Cole (keyboards, drums, programming); and Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus (programming, editing). The artwork is by Thundercat’s friend Bootymath.
Thundercat joins Flying Lotus, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Shabazz Palaces and The Gaslamp Killer at the upcoming Brainfeeder Showcase at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on 17th September 2016. Thundercat will also play in London at the OnBlackheath Festival on 10th September.
