You have to be a slightly out-there rapper to tackle the equally out-there music crafted by Modeselektor. So who better to fit that bill than resident Los Angeles rap weirdo Busdriver, who recently dropped a rad-but-bizarre cover of Animal Collective’s “Leaf House.” Modeselektor and Busdriver’s collaboration, “Pretentious Friends,” stems from the producer’s forthcoming third album, Monkeytown. And it’s fucking hilarious, especially the breakdown that features chatter on pâté and the Cannes Film Festival. It bangs, too, as Busdriver absolutely rips it across Modeselektor’s frantic production, though it is no match for the West Coast rapper’s insane bars. Technical skill aside, it’s the humor of the track that will have you coming back for more.
