Video: Rusty Redenbacher “Golden Years” (David Bowie Cover)

Rusty Redenbacher has been one of the hardest working members of the Indianapolis hip hop scene since I was copping my first feel on the dance floor back in junior high. One need look no further than the man’s twitter feed to understand just how relentless Rusty’s commitment to his craft can be. The latest installment in Rusty’s seemingly endless catalog can be found below. Here, Rusty trades hip hop hooks for glam rock glory on a terrific cover of David Bowie’s “Golden Years.”

One of the things that I admire most about Rusty is his willingness to try anything. What’s so surprising is how often this experimentation succeeds. For more, head over to the Tornado Alley Tumblr for a free download of The Professor and The Hustler, his 2011 release with fellow Indy emcee Mr. Kinetik. Or hit up his Facebook page for his most recent solo release, The Tinkerer.

Video: Rusty Redenbacher “Iron Man Monster Factory”

Rusty Redenbacher is a Naptown institution. The man has been cranking out consistently thought-provoking hip-hop since Mudkids dropped 4-Track Mind when I was in sixth grade. His album with local teacher and emcee Mr. Kinetik was one of the hip-hop releases of 2011 that I could legitimately latch on to (SEE: Video: Rusty Redenbacher & Mr. Kinetik “Cashin’ In”). Late yesterday, Russ dropped a video for “Iron Man Monster Fatory” from his latest release The Tinkerer. Yes, the computer-generated bursts of flames are ridiculous, but, as with anything that Rusty releases, we must place the tongue firmly within the cheek. The album release party for The Tinkerer will be held this Saturday at Daddy Real’s The Place. Those that pay the $10 cover will receive a hard copy of the release.
