Thundercat has earned a reverence among music lovers and makers alike. The artist né Stephen Bruner released It Is What It Is, his fourth studio album, on April 3; it is the follow-up to his critically acclaimed LP Drunk, which was as adventurous as it was plain goofy. While not completely serious—see: “Dragonball Durag” and “Overseas” featuring Zack Fox—his latest record is only ever a few moments away from affectionate vulnerability.
