Discovery: Lofi Uppercut - One of Us


Lofi Uppercut is one of many projects by Canadian born Bruce Thomas. His work in art, music, books, multimedia... is like discovering DC / Marvel films for the first time. You come across one, then realise there's hundreds of hours of material to sink your teeth in to. Overkill, but it's good to know that some people out there are not procrastinators.

This project is actually a two piece, Thomas teams up with friend Eddy Cola - drums, whereas Thomas does pretty much everything else it seems. The multi-instrumentalist focuses on a blend of garage rock, psychedelia on this project. As the name suggests, a lo-fi recording is used and this enhances Thomas' vocals.


"One of Us" is from the album Mums Your Mother (at least.. I think.) Thomas' music is prolific, however, this is the musical equivalent of a scary side road at night, so information is sparse. The closest comparison in terms of the prolificness and music style is Ty Segall's Sleeper - psych folk with just enough fuzz. Musically speaking, "One of Us" picks parts from the 60s that are often undervalued. A reckless structure, crash symbols, wailing vocals, and a vibe that makes you think of early Marc Bolan. Thomas is evidently a quality vocalist, sounding not far off Damon Albarn in parts of "One of Us", but the real quality is in the unknown - the music you're yet to hear from Thomas and Lofi Uppercut. With hours of material out there, it would be unwise to suggest "One of Us" is the norm.
