Leron Thomas is big underground. Cliquish is the new recording from him and a fine demonstration of just how unclassifiable this great talent is. Here, funky soul, driving bass lines meet with hard inde rock riffs and electro pop sci-fi weirdness. Put simply, this is alternative black music that sounds like no other. Also, he plays in a live band composed of Jason Moran, Meschel Ndegeocello, Bilal and Guts.
