new music: moses sumney and thundercat collaborate on the explosive “lonely world” #soundcheck

September 30, 2016

With their shared talent for elliptically beautiful transcendence, it should be no surprise that the collaboration between Moses Sumney and Thundercat is as good as it is. Building slowly from Sumney’s haunting falsetto and a bubbling bass line, the song grows to an explosive climax, while Sam Cannon’s visuals swirl hypnotically. There are few better ways to spend 5 minutes.
