Busdriver – “Much” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Busdriver - "Much" Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Prolific LA underground rapper Busdriver AKA Regan John Farquhar is best known for his dense, wordy verses and rolling, rapid-fire delivery. He dropped his 10th full-length, Perfect Hair, last September, which included guest spots with Aesop Rock and Danny Brown. Now he’s linking up with an intriguing collaborator: Perfect Pussy’s Meredith Graves. The outspoken punk’s Honor Press label will release Busdriver’s first book and a 7″ by his new band. But before all that, he’s releasing one more solo album called Thumbs on his own Temporary Whatever label later this week.
The video for Thumbs single “Much” arrives today, and its tongue-in-cheek visuals match the song’s feel-good, bouncing beats. Director Wes Tank’s camera follows Busdriver as he bops around a house and backyard, occasionally crossing into some dancing teenagers while leaving a spatter of dollars bills here and there. There’s a friendly, fun-for-the-whole-family vibe to the whole thing. Watch the video below.
Thumbs is out 11/06 via Temporary Whatever/Alphapup. Pre-order it here.
