Stephen Bruner, the bassist/singer/songwriter better known as Thundercat, has already left an indelible aural imprint on our musical consciousness this year. His major contributions on Kendrick Lamar‘s masterpiece To Pimp a Butterfly and Kamasi Washington‘s opus The Epic have been critically praised far and wide. Rather than take a break, he kicked off the summer with his own EP release, the concise but breathtaking The Beyond/Where The Giants Roam. The EP (which features Kamasi, Herbie Hancock, Flying Lotus, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Mono/Poly) left us wanting more, but also left us wondering what’s next for the supremely talented musician.
