Product Details
Description
Beaus$Eros, the seventh full-length from indie rap trailblazer Busdriver, forgoes the lightening-speed rhyming that defined his style in favor of a diverse, off-kilter brand of pop and post-hip-hop. Called "...as technically impressive as an MC can get" by Pitchfork and others, Busdriver has made his most personal and avantgarde work yet with Beaus$Eros. Focusing on a devastating break-up and personal failure, the album is buttered in stirring melodies and complexbvocals. In step with Busdriver's recent work with forward-thinking producers Flying Lotus, Modeselektor, Nosaj Thing and others, the production on Beaus$Eros takes root in beat music, lush IDM, and sythpop.

Inarguably one of the premiere risk takers in modern indie rap, Busdriver has been a fixture in the scene for ten years, releasing compelling left-field rap albums on taste-maker labels like Mush, Big Dada, Alphapup, Polyvinyl and Anti-. Performing and collaborating regularly with acts likes The Roots, CocoRosie, Aesop Rock, The Glitch Mob, Deerhoof, the beatmakers of Low End Theory and more, his place in the network of left-leaning musicians is as unique as it's ever been.

Up-and-coming Belgian production wiz Loden doctors every moment on Beaus $Eros as the album's only producer. Without ever physically meeting or speaking live, the two manage an electric synergy that usually comes from years of working together. Loden's Hindenburg-sized beats push Busdriver's croons and spat thoughts into difficult-to-label territory. Think Bjork's Post filtered through the sensibility of Outkast's The Love Below with outsider artist goals hidden in every measure. Beaus$Eros is the colorful sum of his wildly adaptive voice in music and proof that he still reigns over entire undiscovered worlds to which his loyal following is now invited.

"Basically the fastest rapper on earth"
-The Fader

"...if you like your hip-hop weird, jagged and rapped like a wolverine, this will probably make you want to occupy something."
-Los Angeles Times

"[Loden] has laced Busdriver with genre-spanning production to create a record with touches of synth-pop, IDM, and, of course, left-field boom-bap."
-Prefix Magazine
