Busdriver - Arguments With Dreams [Hip-Hop]

I don't know how to raise children, I only know how to raise money...
Busdriver is... weird. Though even "weird" doesn't really start to describe this abstract hip hop artist. Though I don't think I really need to tell you these things since you probably pieced that together yourself from the album cover. Anyways, Busdriver has managed to keep a dedicated underground fanbase since his release Temporary Forever back in 2003. Though as years have gone by, Busdriver has became more and more abstract as an artist. With incredibly interesting production and enough head scratching lyrics to make people like Aesop Rock wonder what the hell Busdriver is talking about.

Arguments With Dreams which is a set up to the critically acclaimed 2014 album Perfect Hair and here all logic is thrown out the window for a beautifully chaotic record. Many unorthodox ideas are present on the records, such as the broken 8-Bit instrumentals randomly thrown in through out Public Grope or the simply insane mixes of noise on tracks like Everyday Oblivion and Serrated Blade of a Smile. Then of course, the completely abstract lyrics of the album cannot be left un-noted. The writing of Arguments With Dreams presents an incredibly large amount of odd metaphors and almost nonsensical lines. While this album may not be everyone's cup of tea it is certainly one worth a spin. 

You can stream, download, or buy Arguments With Dreams here. If you liked this album consider supporting Busdriver by throwing a few coins his way or purchasing his brand new album Perfect Hair. You could even share this album with your friends. Who knows, maybe they like songs about public groping set to the tune of broken NES chiptune. Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
