The general rule of thumb is, if it's released on Brainfeeder you should pay it some attention. Kamasi Washington's new album, The Epic, is one such album.

"He just plays the craziest shit, man. I mean, everything — the past, present, the future," says Brainfeeder boss, Flying Lotus. "It's hard to find unique voices in this music. Especially in jazz, more so lately, everybody is trying to do the same shit. I don't want to hear 'My Favorite Things' anymore… What I am hearing is a leader among artists."

Admit it - you wanna hear this, don't you? Check it out below courtesy of NPR. The Epic is released on May 4th via Brainfeeder.
