Thundercat: “Heartbreaks + Setbacks” Live on KCRW

Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner recently announced a new album, which sent me into a spiral of watching his YouTube videos. Here’s a clip from five years ago when he visited KCRW with his trio to perform “Heartbreaks + Setbacks,” from his 2013 album Apocalypse.

Thundercat sets up the syncopated groove with some heavy octave effects on his signature six-string. Be sure to check the unison arpeggios with the keyboard at the 2:42 mark.
