“Bowzer’s Ballad” [Thundercat] :: Dedicated to Nintendo’s Hiroshi Yamauchi

Thundercat drops a joint that will warm the hearts of gamers the world over with“Bowzer’s Ballad” – a track dedicated to Nintendo President Hiroshi Yamauchi. Yamauchi passed away on September 19th at the age of 85 after guiding the corporation to the fore as a leading innovator in the world of video game design. Thundercat’s 8-bit homage is a sinister bass-heavy dirge that captures the otherworldly emotional highs and lows often associated with scores of adventure fantasy games – a field of virtual gameplay that Nintendo pioneered during Yamauchi’s tenure. The track arrives alongside a handful of tour dates that take Thundercat to a few cities in Europe before he returns stateside to rock a number of venues through November.
