Busdriver Preps Tour with Daedelus, Girl Talk
- Words: Fred Miketa
Groomed by the Project Blowed crew in the early-'90s, L.A.-based MC Busdriver has had been all over the country, dropping albums and playing shows since stepping into the solo realm in 1999. Last year's RoadKillOvercoat–which features production from Nobody and Boom-Bip, as well as much breaking of genre barriers–is still turning heads and gaining acclaim, and with master of weirdness Daedelus and sample king Girl Talk coming along for several dates, Busdriver's latest tour should be one nutty ride. And our hats go off to the guy for being one of the few indie artists we've seen this year make the trek up to the far reaches of Montana.
RoadKillOvercoat is out now, on Anti/Epitaph.
Watch Busdriver on Episode 5 of XLR8R TV.
