26-year-old Stephen Bruner’s resumé would be the envy of musicians twice his age. At 15, the virtuoso bassist garnered his
first hit as part ofboy band No Curfew. Two years later, he began touring with Suicidal Tendencies, a job he still holds today.
Now having backed everyone fromSnoop Dogg to Erykah Badu, Bruner’s performing under the alias Thundercat, he’s released
The Golden Age of Apocalypse, a Sun Ra-meets-Jaco Pastorius-meets-Roy Ayers psychedelic jazz head trip, produced entirely
by Flying Lotus.
