    Been nearly two years since its release, and I'm still playing it on my stereo till this day. The bassist of Suicidal Tendencies, under moniker Thundercat, released his album on 2011. Unlike any sort of jazz I've listened before, The Golden Age of Apocalypse sets off a cosmic, sonic and electrifying vibe. It's a strong, bass centric jam that would soothed the tensest minds. Highlight tracks: Fleer Ultra, Jamboree, For Love I Come, Daylight Expand

    Several cuts are instrumental workouts, unpredictable and flagrantly noodle-y. Others venture into tranquil folk-soul and soft jazz-pop; for all the animated instrumental flexing on display, it's those atmospheric and simpler songs that move the most.

    What Thundercat has created with The Golden Age of Apocalypse is the sonic equivalent to a power-packed issue of Wax Poetics, bringing together several disparate elements of one nation under a groove to build a challenging and soulful playground for his indelible skills on the bass.
