    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.

    this didn't get a ton of public attention––busdriver is not super newsworthy––but it fractured a lot of important professional relationships for him

    Oh, I read that article when it dropped. I guess I'm just used to the big names being impervious to repercussions. Hope he can make amends.

    You know Serengeti, right? I guess I just kind of assumed that at some point.
