Apostle of Hustle


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Apostle of Hustle is the creation of Andrew Whiteman. Whiteman is a Canadian musician and songwriter from Toronto, Ontario. After a series of groups and musical projects he had during the 90s, Andrew was invited by Leslie Feist to collaborate with herself and what was then essentially the core of Broken Social SceneBrendan Canning, Kevin Drew and Justin Peroff. The chemistry was successful and Whiteman became one of the band’s four members to consistently appear in every tour.

Since his affiliation with the record label Arts&Crafts, Andrew Whiteman began his side project, Apostle of Hustle, inspired by various literary philosophical classics and world music — particuarly that of Cuba. The band’s first album, Folkloric Feel, is an eclectic but stunning display of vision and original sound. The band’s follow-up LP was National Anthem of Nowhere, released in February of 2007. Their third album, Eats Darkness, was released on May 19th, 2009.

    ha i'm just seeing this too. because i'm into a bunch of indie stuff and realize with titles like of montreal's kissie kiss the corpse that a bunch of this stuff isn't serious. my boyfriend on the other hand tries to make connections and things out of everything. omg, why didn't i listen to folkloric feel first? imo that kicks the national anthem of nowhere's butt..i LOVE animal fat, sleepwalking ballad(it's romanitc and dreamy to me) and most of all kings and queens. i can't understand a word they say in that song..but the feel and energy behind it is just awesome.

    Who knows? Cheap Like Sebastien was written spontaneously in their hotel room while on tour. The reference seems just as spontaneous to me.

    @musiclovesme, Fairly sure it's a reference to Sebastien Grainger - They only have two other albums, but I would suggest their first, Folkloric Feel. It's one of those rare albums that I feel is pretty much perfect. :)

    also, super fans of this band help me out. my boyfriend keeps asking me if cheap like sebastien is a reference to someone. he's a bit older so he recognizes the la la la part from another old song. i don't really know of it referring to anything but thought i'd ask.

    howdy howdy. really love this band. i only have national anthem of nowhere. my fav songs from that are cheap like sebastien(this song requires at least a 5 repeat), national anthem of nowhere, the naked and alone, and jimmy scott is the answer. what cd should i try next?
