Alternative hip hop
Call it what you want, you can't even call it.
The kid is interstellar.
Thundercat makes music you'd expect expensive smelling folks who drive foreign, smoke indica and believe love sees no color would enjoy.
Last night in Orange County I nuzzled with a litter of them.
In a packed ass house, on that sparse Observatory stage, his falsetto and three piece, (Dennis Hamm @dennishammKeysand Justin Brown @drumbrownie) created an aural phenomenon that electrified the room if not the universe.
I've camped the forest of The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam, offered supplications to Apocalypse and had the quirky and eccentric #DRUNK on heavy rotation all 2017.
But @sonos is no match for Thundercat live.
Live, he's fucking Miles Davis, Bitches Brew on bass.
Catch him on the road this summer.
I'll be there in the crowd re-aligning my chakras and communicating with aliens via his bass lines.
