I bet he'd be great live. The San Diego area is lucky to have him.
He reminds me of the best part of the early to mid-90's festival music scene - I mean that in the best way possible. I'm serious. Listening to Bushwalla makes me happy.
When I listen to this album I can imagine going to see him on a stage near Baby Gramps at the Oregon Country Fair...wait...I don't know the guy, but I bet he'd be AT the Baby Gramps performance instead of playing near him. Ok, so I could see him playing at Bumbershoot before it was commercialized.
That's the vibe I get - a cool, quirky, unique beat constantly walking the line between musical genres. Bushwalla sounds great in the car driving home from work, on I-5 fighting traffic, riding your bike (rocking a basket, of course), and especially good if you are walking your commute. If you love lyrical fun, Bushwalla's the guy for you and Autodidactical, Freestyle, and Radical is the album for you.
