✨✧ ThundercatApocalypse ... CD
Brainfeeder, 2013. Used ... $8.99
Thundercat at the top of his game – delivering spacey synth soul backdrops that are as insistent as they are innovative – paired with emotionally invested vocals and lyricism! Thundercat has a kinship with Brainfeeder founder and creative partner Flying Lotus, particularly given their mix of cosmic jazz funk elements paired with the tighter beats and iberating production touches of boundary-busting hip hop. That said, Thundercat has a more song-based approach – with accessible songs and appealingly soulful vocals – what more could we ask for? Seriously some of the best material yet from the Brainfeeder camp! Includes "Tenfold", "Heartbreaks + Setbacks", "The Life Aquatic", "Special Stage", "Tron Song", "Seven", "Oh Sheit It's X", "Without You", "Lotus And The Jondy", "Evangelion", "We'll Die" and "A Message For Austin/Praise The Lord/Enter The Void".

TrickyMaxinquaye ... CD
Island (UK), 1995. Used ... $2.99
Benchmark trip hop from one the true innovators – and one of pivotal albums of the past couple decades! Along with the work of Portishead, Tricky circa Maxinquaye sort of established the blueprint for the whole mid 90s guy-with-sludgy-beats-meets-girl-vocalist genre – and like the Portishead LPs, this one really stands up to the test of time, where all the imitators just don't! Truthfully though this has much more in common with co-collaborator Howie B or fellow Bristol beat merchants Massive Attack, where it actually re-casts it's samples (from quite a variety of sources) in a new light, creating a sound that's identifiable more as Tricky's than the original artists. 12 tracks in all on the remastered original album, including a the remake of "Black Steel" by PE, plus "Aftermath", "Brand New You're Retro", "Ponderosa", "Hell Is Round The Corner", "Pumpkin", "Suffocated Love", "You Don't", "Strugglin'" and "Feed Me".

✨✧ Flying LotusUntil The Quiet Comes ... CD
Warp, 2012. Used ... Just Sold Out!
The best yet from Flying Lotus – who we keep allowing ourselves to believe has hit an insurmountable peak with each new record – but he just keeps getting better! Where the preceding Cosmogramma upped the stranger, spacier and more abstract textures, Until The Quiet Comes is a bit more inviting – and to his credit, Flying Lotus keeps things as innovative as ever, while still giving this one just a bit more immediately appealing atmosphere. There's nearly always a compelling beat, whether it's abstract boom bap or bubbly and synthy, with heavy bass and thick waves of sound floating over. An incredible roster of guests contribute, too – including string-arranger Miguel Atwood Ferguson, vocalists Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington and Radiohead's Thom Yorke, keyboardist Dorian Concept, and others – but there's little doubt that this is purely the Flying Lotus show. Greatness! Titles include "All In", "Sultan's Request", "See Thru To U" with Erykah Badu, "DMT Song" with Thundercat, "The Nightcaller", "Only If You Wanna", "Electric Candyman" with Thom Yorke, "Hunger" with Niki Randa, "Phantasm" with Laura Darlington, "Dream To Me" and more.
