A solid track from Thundercat, Flying Lotus, and Badbadnotgood! (audio)
Having all three of these musical titans on the same track, you think it would be positively mind blowing. But ultimately while it didn’t destroy the world, it’s still a pretty solid track. This new track from Thundercat, “King of the Hill” feels like a Thundercat track (mind you, that’s not a bad thing in the slightest) with little dashes of spice coming from BBNG and Flying Lotus. It starts off similarly to a lot of Thundercat tracks; with a kind of eerie, melancholic, melody before those unmistakable Thundercat vocals kick in. All of this is rounded off with some dry, thick drums, some nice little keyboard and string melodic flourishes, all rounded off with some Flying Lotus little post-production (I think). It’s not the most memorable track from all three members, but it’s definitely worth a listen all the same.
This track can be found on Brainfeeder’s upcoming compilation X coming out on November 16th!
