The Hustle will not disappoint fans of G Love or the folksy-bluesy-cruisy genre. Shades of Donovan Frankenreiter, with a hint of Jack johnson and a slight Ben Harper flavour, this album is just too fun. You get the distinct sensation that it was fun to make as well.
G Love's profile has risen consistently, particulary through appearances with Jack and Ben at their gigs around the place, but in no way does he need these guys to feed off. With a slightly rougher edge than the aforementioned, G Love has combined the blues, folk, hip hop, rock and just about any other genre you can name, save opera perhaps, and melded them into his own brand of funk. Hard to pigeon-hole, but so damn easy to listen to.
Get on the back of this album - it is a true POLO - "Put On, Leave On" album. In short - you won't wanna skip any of these tracks.
