Get into this guy’s head - the humor, the pockets, the energy, the soul - for an hour of music. Every single track has a make-me-smile-big moment. The flow of “After The Load...” is basically one gigantic, nasty, stink face inducing chord progression that you have to suppress yourself yelping from while listening. Seriously. It helps to know a bit about where this guy is coming from so check out his multitude of side projects as well, including other collabs with Thundercat, and his band Knower with Genevieve Atardi. The funk is strong with this one.

A True Original

I think every artist wants to be an original, but very few have the vision to actually be original and even fewer have the grit to go against the tide of conformity. Louis is such an artist.

Louis Cole is a genius

Trust me, I’ve spent plenty of time around the real thing and this young man ranks among the most brilliant.

Do yourself a favor, learn about him!!!

About Louis Cole

A left-field pop musician whose energized material often puts an ebullient spin on everyday pitfalls, Louis Cole is one-half of Knower, a frequent studio collaborator, and a solo artist whose releases include Time (2018), released on the Brainfeeder label. Encouraged by friend and collaborator Jack Conte (Pomplamoose) to release music online, the Los Angeles native got to work after he graduated from USC Thornton School of Music. In 2010, he released a self-titled solo album, and he and partner Genevieve Artadi also issued their first full-length as Knower. Additional self-released solo and duo recordings, along with numerous videos, were scattered across the next few years. Cole co-wrote "Padded Cell" for Seal's 2015 album 7, and within months, he and Artadi were featured on Snarky Puppy's Family Dinner, Vol. 2. The year 2017 was particularly eventful for Cole, entailing a pair of co-writing credits on Thundercat's Drunk ("Bus in These Streets," "Jameel's Space Ride"), his and Artadi's placement of a song on the soundtrack for The Lego Ninjago Movie ("Dance of Doom"), and gigs opening for admirers the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Time, Cole's third solo album, arrived on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label in 2018. Made over the course of two-and-a-half years, it featured appearances from Artadi and Thundercat, as well as keyboardist Dennis Hamm and pianist Brad Mehldau.
