ABSOLUTExclusive: Astronautalis

Posted by - 12:41 PM on 09/07/11
Astronautalis' upcoming album, This Is Our Science, opens with one of the best and most powerful tracks of the year, "The River, The Woods." The emotion poured in that song is infectious, as is the rest of the album -- its charm is inescapable. It's for that very reason, and the fact that Andy Bothwell has truly outdone himself with this release (despite Pomegranate being nearly flawless), that we teamed up with Team Clermont to bring you guys an exclusive stream of the entire album on his AP.net profile. If you enjoy hip-hop and other independent artists such as the Doomtree, then this comes highly recommended. And if this genre is not "your thing," then you should give it a listen for the simple fact that he is an incredible lyricist and most certainly deserves your attention. Without further ado, go take a listen to the record here, which features Sims and Tegan Quin, and make sure to purchase it after. Enjoy.

Will most likely be in my Top 10 this year. Can't wait to see him later this month and finally purchase this too.

Great record. Even better musician!

Like I said in the other thread...if this were instrumental I would dig it a lot. But the dudes voice/flow sounds terrible imo. Really like the beats though.

Horrible Crowes, Bon Iver, Astronautalis ... at the moment, I'd say probably third.

His voice makes the album for me. Love that gruff twang thing.

Such a good record. Thomas Jefferson is such a jam, and Holy Water is awesome.
