Buck 65 once was a Canadian MC and Turntablist but has been moving his sound away from hip hop and more towards blues. On his recent tour with Sage Francis Buck 65 was selling a record entitled Porch. Check out photos of him and Sage at Bowery Ballroom in NYC here.

What is interesting is that Buck 65 is set to release his album Situation on September 18th and I am curious if its going to be more folky blues type spoken word than hip hop. Check out a track off the limited LP.

Mp3: Buck 65 - "Coo Coo Bird"

Buy:Visit is official spot for more info on the upcoming album.

on his last tour, he was actually selling like 3 or 4 different releases (cretin hip-hop vol 1., heck, porch, live & in private), depending on the show you went to.

each one had a different take (ie. live & in private was all culled from live performances, porch is all acoustic, heck was all rare/unreleased tracks) on buck's sound.

all in all, if his next album is anything like his last proper (secret house), i'm down with it. he seems to be expanding in interesting directions, for sure.

I heard him perform this song live a few months ago in Ottawa, and at that time it had a rocking beat underneath it. His songs tend to evolve a lot before - and ever after - he records them.

I was at the same show as Ren and the beat was completely different, though I'm not too sure which one I prefer, this sounds amazing. 2007 is an amazing year for music.
