'Perfect Hair' is the eighth record in the career of lightning fast wordsmith Busdriver, who has been speeding past people with his raps for a minute now. On record, he's joined by a great host of contemporaries, including the Andrew WK of hip-hop, Danny Brown, and Aesop Rock, who shares a love for getting his poems out as fast as possible and leaving listeners stuck in the rubble. As always, Busdriver is recommended for fans of underground and indie rap music.

8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 04 September 2014
Indie-hop veteran and serial collaborator Busdriver is back again this week with his eighth solo album 'Perfect Hair', an explosion of expansive, unpredictable, tough-sounding beats and warp-speed raps; a kind of dystopian update of the twisted and cerebral hip-hop of the likes of Dalek, Mel Gibson & The Pants or Aesop Rock (who pops up here on 'Ego Death' along with Danny Brown for some sick rhyme-trading) but with cold techno-influenced synths dominating the backdrop on most tracks.
Sometimes he does this fast half-rapping/half-singing thing which is quite unusual, and particularly effective in the Mono/Poly-produced 'Upsweep' where he drops this tuneful off-beat spiel that turns the dubby groove inside out into a sugar-rush of showtune-esque lyricism. Kenny Segal-produced 'Eat Rich' is another highlight with a bouncy beat full of stop-start samples and bloopy synths and handclaps, a dangerously catchy chorus and ADD verbalising in the verses. Not a bad album at all. Really enjoyable leftfield hip-hop that's overflowing with energy and imagination.
