Buck 65 – “Paper Airplane”
Pairs Well With…Sage Francis, Astronautalis, Townes Van Zandt
Buck 65 has been active in indie hip hop for 20 plus years and over that time his style has evolved from Hip Hop minimalism to a sound that layers electronic, folk, and rock elements. He’s been compared to Tom Waits and the comparison fits in the regard that with every album he brings something new to his style and develops as an artist. On his newest album, 20 Odd Years, he often raps in his familiar spoken blues style flow though the album is more musically melodic than his dissonant sounding earlier albums. Buck is currently mixing songs for his upcoming album so expect at least a few new tracks at SXSW.
