Radio Hour with Genesis Owusu

"Genesis Owusu the nom de guerre of Kofi Owusu-Ansah, the 23 year old Ghanain-Australian artist behind one of this year’s best albums. Smiling with No Teeth, which is his debut LP, is a brilliant mash up of wild guitar rock, post-modern hip-hop, and new wave sheen. The record’s lyrics concern depression and racism, and the sharp contrast of its bright and catchy arrangements make for an incredibly engaging listen. Genesis joined the show this week to talk about the jam-heavy process of writing his album, the idea of “catching more flies with honey than vinegar,” and breaking artistic barriers by being unafraid to fail."
