Bike For Three! - More Heart Than Brains

Bike For Three! is comprised of Buck 65 (Canadian rapper from Anticon) and Belgian producer Joëlle Phuong Minh Lê. The two have never met, the project has been created across the ocean. This transatlantic effort has produced a really fucking good hip/hop album, the music is less "beats" and more atmospheric (not like the group) but the music creates the landscape, the scenery. The music keeps you planted as Buck 65's stories will sweep you into deeply specific and personal times and spaces. Favorites are Lazarus Phenomenon, Always I WIll Miss You. Always You., and The Departure. But this isn't an album that you can just listen to one song, you have to hear the whole thing. Enjoy.

Hello and Thank you,
Very very good blog. I never write comments but I do have to in this case, very readable descriptions on all posts too. Enough flattery I guess. I notice the artwork of a "heart" on the cover is similar to another band. Do you know the Veils? If not here are a couple of links.

Nux Vomica 2006

Wow, those two albums do have really similar album artwork. I'm a big Buck 65 fan but found it a little tough to get into this record. Some of his lyrics just don't fit the beats on this.
