Thundercat: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert 18 oktober 2017
Thundercat was op 18 oktober 2017 te gast op de burelen van de Amerikaanse publieke omroep NTR voor een Tiny Desk Concert.

Steven Bruner (vocals, bass); Dennis Ham
m (keys); Justin Brown (drums); Miguel Antwood Ferguson (violin)

Oct. 18, 2017 | Bobby Carter -- Thundercat, born Stephen Bruner, is willing and able to shape-shift to fit into just about any box you show him — he just won't stay in there for long. Whether fusing his talent for jazz while a bassist with punk legacy act Suicidal Tendencies or as a member of Snoop Dogg's band — maybe running a little too far with a solo here and there — the focus seems to eventually drift his way.

After releasing two brilliant solo albums, he was plucked to work on what eventually became one of the most important works of art released this decade: Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly. Capitalizing off of the new exposure, he quickly released the EP The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam. That was followed about two years later by Drunk, his most solid project to date.

I didn't know what to expect in the days leading to the performance, but I was hoping to get what I thought a Thundercat experience would be like. All boxes ended up checked: He arrived wearing a neon pink hoodie with his signature logo plastered about, kickboxing shorts, white chancletas, playing a Nintendo portable gaming console. He and his bandmates Dennis Hamm, Justin Brown and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, all master musicians in their own right, polished off some bacon croissant sandwiches and proceeded to give us three of the best of what Drunk has to offer.

Set List

"Lava Lamp"
"Friend Zone"
"Them Changes"


Producers: Bobby Carter, Morgan Noelle Smith; Creative Director: Bob Boilen; Audio Engineer: Josh Rogosin; Videographers: Morgan Noelle Smith, Maia Stern, Alyse young; Production Assistant: CJ Riculan; Photo: Jennifer Kerrigan/NPR.

De Staat: Headphone Sessions van hun album O
De Staat speelt hun nieuwe album in intieme setting voor een klein publiek in dezelfde setting als toen ze het album O opnamen. Deze video is 30 april 2017 gepubliceerd.
r /> Two months before the release of success record O, De Staat invited a small group of fans to the studio for an exclusive listening session. No big PA blasting, but instead the attendees got the same experience as the band did while recording their record: through a headphone they heard De Staat play their new songs. In between and after the session everyone could aks questions about what they saw en heard. A intimate session that, a year after, with the knowledge of the success, is still exciting to watch!




28:28 Q&A: Is Vedran Mircetic an official member of the band?
29:15 Q&A: What’s the advantage of having a rehearsal space and studio in one?
32:45 Q&A: Are these all your own instruments?
33:24 Q&A: How does the group process work and are the choices made by satisfaction?
36:14 Q&A: What do you like least about creating a record?
37:20 Q&A: When’s a record complete?
40:07 Q&A: How did the recording process of this album work?
41:20 Q&A: How did the mixing process of this album work?
43:56 Q&A: Where did the inspiration for lyrics come from?

Recorded November 2015



Twee maanden voor het uitkomen van succesalbum 'O' nodigde De Staat een klein groepje fans in de studio uit voor een exclusieve luistersessie. Er stond geen grote PA te blazen, in plaats daarvan kregen de aanwezigen precies dezelfde ervaring als de band al die maanden had gehad bij het uitwerken van nieuwe songs: via een koptelefoon hoorden ze De Staat hun nieuwe repertoire spelen, precies zoals het bedoeld was. Tussendoor en na afloop kon iedereen vragen stellen over alles wat ze zagen en hoorden. Een intieme sessie die, een jaar na dato, met de wetenschap van het succes, nog spannender is om terug te kijken!




28:28 Q&A: Is Vedran Mircetic wel officieel bandlid?
29:15 Q&A: Wat het voordeel van repetitieruimte en studio in één?
32:45 Q&A: Zijn dit allemaal eigen instrumenten?
33:24 Q&A: Hoe werkt het groepsproces en zijn de gemaakte keuzes naar tevredenheid?
36:14 Q&A: Wat is het minst leuk aan het ontstaan van een album?
37:20 Q&A: Wanneer is het album af?
40:07 Q&A: Hoe werkte het opnameproces van dit album?
41:20 Q&A: Hoe werkte het mixproces van dit album?
43:56 Q&A: Hoe kwam de tekstinspiratie tot stand?
