The Golden Age of Apocalypse

by Thundercat

One of my favourite albums of 2011, The Golden Age of Apocalypse is a treasure trove of jazzy chill-out music.  Thundercat, a protege of Flying Lotus, who produced this album, plays bass and sings on some of the songs.

Unlike a lot of what I've come to expect from Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label, there is not a lot of weirdness to this album.  Instead, there are plenty of lovely songs made all the better by Thundercat's slightly haunting voice.

I lack the musical vocabulary to really explain what makes this album so special; it will have to suffice to say that I like it a lot.
