Astronautalis and Busdriver's ascents to notoriety were far outside of the norm for hip-hop artists. The former released an album on Eyeball Records (one-time home of Thursday and the Number Twelve Looks Like You) and toured with Tegan and Sara. The latter had his big break with a guest rap on Islands' debut Return to the Sea and recorded a split with Deerhoof. Given that Astronautalis is an indie-rock singer-songwriter in a hip-hop shell, and Busdriver is an oddball MC with a hyperactive flow and thesaurus-caliber vocabulary, the atypical career arcs are fitting.
