After three years, Busdriver has now released his tenth album, Electricity is on our Side. Coming in at 22 tracks, the album features the likes of Denmark Vessey, Kenny Segal, Daedelus and more. Electricity is available via Bandcamp, plus vinyls are on the way July 1st.
"Drawing from memory and community roots, the 10th album from rap innovator BUSDRIVER plays out like an ode to modern folk art via the act’s characteristically warped take on the world’s leading pop music: hiphop. Homespun and bursting with intention, “electricity is on our side” argues that the quintessential underground hiphop album is in fact the high art of the day.// Electronic musics, jazz, hiphop and writing are once again minced into a unique configuration(underground social music) to achieve the aesthetic ends and messaging harnessed by the legendary BUSDRIVER."
