Sixty seconds with Busdriver. Link

Indy: Members of CocoRosie appear on your new album, Roadkillovercoat, and you’ve toured with Deerhoof. You seem to straddle that line between the rap and indie worlds a lot. Is that difficult?

Busdriver: No. What is difficult is attempting to crack a market whose artists won’t embrace you. I’ve been lucky enough to tour with a bunch of interesting non-hip-hop bands who I honestly love, yet I couldn’t scare up a hip-hop tour to save my life. Am I that odd of an artist? Are the indie-and-beyond-hip-hop circles that politically driven?
