“Lotus and the Jondy” Thundercat
As Thundercat, Stephen Bruner digs into astral soul music that’s often both funky and heartbreaking. Co-produced and co-written by Flying Lotus and Mono/Poly, Apocalypse was written after the death of keyboardist Austin Peralta. It can be bittersweet, as if it’s an attempt to smile and dance the pain away.
Completely unsurprising that I love this. Janelle Monáe ft. Erykah Badu “Q.U.E.E.N.”
She is truly the perfect popstar.
