Heartbreaks and Setbacks perhaps represents Thundercat’s most commercial venture to date, but don’t get me wrong, this needn’t’ always be a bad thing. The track is a radio-friendly length; verses and chorues are where you’d expect and the hooks / harmonies / chord arrangements are of course as lush as a Barry White shag pile carpet.
All-in-all, a predictably stunning tale of emotional woe by this prodigious talent. All co-written and co-produced by Flying Lotus. #Smaash
