Stephen Bruner aka Thundercat’s LP Drunk is an eccentric funked out late night space jam. With titles like ‘3AM’, ‘DUI’, and ‘Drink Dat’, Drunk is an album meant to be played in the haze of the wee hours of the morning. Thundercat continues the tradition of Kendrick Lamar’s instrumentalists going on to critical acclaim themselves a la Kamasi Washington. It’s encouraging to see skilled studio instrumentalists break into the mainstream. Standout ‘Them Changes’ remains the highlight as the 24 songs at times blend into a hypnotic trance.
