Listen to Thundercat’s Impassioned Return “Heartbreaks & Setbacks” (Stream)

thundercat-heartbreaksandsetbacksIn my Eva Langoria voice, “This is my NEW favourite!” We have been eagerly waiting for new music from Thundercat and this one meets our expectations. He has pushed the envelope and upped his game in sophistication. “Heartbreaks & Setbacks” sounds unlike what he has released before. The vocals are a pure delight, giving the track a sensitivity as his signature bass and drums carry the song. The track has only been on Brainfeeder‘s Soundcloud for two days, and already amassed 55K plays (we attributed to 20 of those plays!).

With his sophomore album,  Apocalypse scheduled to release in July 2013 on Brainfeeder, he holds a tighter reign on the production, where Flying Lotus sits in as executive producer. We are sure to experience another fusion of sounds which incorporate electronic and live instrumentation. Check out the stream below.
