Thundercat unveils import track '$200 TB" from 'Golden Age of the Apocalypse'
Stateside fans of Thundercat's album 'Golden Age of the Apocalypse got an unexpected treat Thursday when producer Flying Lotus released a track from the import edition of debut album from the bassist/vocalist/producer via Sound Cloud. Titled simply '$200 TB,' the track features the fluttering jazz riffs of keyboardist and fellow Brainfeeder artist Austin Peralta amid stomping kick drum and tight snare snaps.
Produced by Fly Lo, the song's taste for jazz-minded R&B, ghostly falsetto and jet propelled bass runs makes it an easy fit into Thundercat's debut record, released back in July. Though the track's two-minute run time feels all too brief, we happily accept it as a small piece of galactic tranquility that pairs well with the end of any hectic work day.
