Busdriver - Perfect Hair

September 20th, 2015
Run Time: 1:17:54




Bpwner, Byron Hulcher, Taylor, and Polly launch an all-new music-focused podcast! The idea began originally as a forum topic, but now it's here and even better in podcast form. The idea is that someone in the group or the community suggest an album for the hosts to listen to over the course of an undetermined number of weeks and then they get together to discuss the album in-depth with some short clips from each track to give the discussion context. This first episode focuses on alternative hip-hopper Busdriver's 2014 project Perfect Hair. We hope you enjoy listening and please feel free to offer feedback and suggestions at the SnS Forum!
