Thundercat, BADBADNOTGOOD, and Flying Lotus on one track — a collaboration for the ages!
This new track was released ahead of Brainfeeder’s upcoming 36-track compilation celebrating their 10-year anniversary.
The track features Thundercat’s unmistakable falsetto, backed up with remarkably spacey BBNG keyboards. A somber collection of thoughts facing a back-and-forth relationship are broken up with funky interlaid keys and soothing Thundercat background vocals. I can’t explain why, but this track feels almost medieval, almost like I should be reading Beowulf while listening.
This upcoming compilation promises new tracks from scores of Brainfeeder artists, it’s out November 16th and will feature artists like TOKiMONSTA and FlyLo.
Listen to how these three legendary artists blend their sounds on “King of the Hill” down below:
