Thundercat – “Bus In These Streets”

Singer and bass-lacer extraordinaire Thundercat celebrated the one-year anniversary of his excellent mini-album The Beyond/Where The Giants Roam a couple months ago with a video for standout “Song Of The Dead.” Today, we get his first release since the album with the bubbly “Bus In These Streets.” Of course groovy bass punctuates the tracks, but it also has a wonderful retro feel with bright tings, subtle drums, and gauzy melodies. Despite its bouyant aesthetic, it’s a poignant ode to our tendency to use technology as a crutch upon perusal of the lyrics. Listen.
