Our Legacy recently released its 2017 spring/summer collection that touts loose-fitting and distressed garments, while pulling inspiration from an array of “masculine subcultures” such as motocross and post-punk to name a few.

The "Draft" collection strikes a bold color palette, sporting mainly black and white. In Weavers we have classic pieces such as: Black half zip smock, classic 50's sweatshirt, classic 40's and 50's and chambray shirting, shawl zip shirts in both white and black, and the army tee in Orchid.

Check out Our Legacy's new Spring/Summer 2017 collection in-store, or HERE now.

Thundercat: 'Drunk'

12/03/2017 13:17

A futuristic, new generation, 'rock-soul' album, is quite a good way of describing Thundercat's new "Drunk". The album is fit (apart from wiz khalifa's track) for people of near enough all ages, leaving the listener wanting more. Drunk, which was also recently reviewed by NME and Pitchfork labelling the sound as "oddball soul", a great analogy, takes you on a journey, sometimes funny and pondering serious issues such as the death of a close friend and Thundercats own personal demons. Catchy beats (Show you the way) and new jazz/funk sound makes for a well thought out 23 song order, not making you easily skip song's on your spotify or apple music, but to actually listen to them all, start to finish.

The album mixes dark humour, randomly charged cat noises and radical Japanese sounds/references (see song: 'Tokyo'), new jazz and soul sound brings the genre into the new generation, waiting to be appreciated by the young versatile youth of today. Thundercats musical friends also lend a helping hand, song's such as "walk on by" feature Kendrick lamar, Pharrell lends his spacey vocal to "the turn down", and Wiz Khalifa brings his style into "drink dat", all three are great tunes.

NME: "‘Drunk’ is jazz, but not the 'La la land' type. It’s a futuristic brand that’d be as at home at Coachella as at Ronnie Scott’s. Funk, soul, pop, electronica and hip-hop orbit around each other. When they cluster and fuse, the results are cosmic (‘Bus In These Streets’ and ‘Them Changes’)."
Score = 4/5 stars

Pitchfork: "All this cosmic morbidity leaned on Thundercat’s music, which takes on many forms all at once: ’70s funk, R&B, punk with tinges of fusion. His art is undeniably black, yet the structures are loose enough to pull in all sorts of listeners."
Score = 8.5/10

A firm favourite amongst the Weavers team, the album is now available to download on spotify and apple music. However, if you're an old school fan like us, you can, as of this week purchase the incredible 4x10" vinyl box set, aesthetic heaven. Available now at all good online record stores, including: FatBeats, Juno Records & HMV.

Thundercat is also playing live here in Liverpool at the end of this month:
Location:
invisible wind factory.
Date: Friday 24th March 2017
