Florida-born white rapper Astronautalis (Andy Bothwell), who
had debuted with the rather trivial and amateurish
You and Yer Good Ideas (2003), attempted an erudite fusion of
the figures of rapper, blue-collar bard
(Short Term Memory Loss),
singer-songwriter and folk-singer on
The Mighty Ocean and Nine Dark Theaters (2006), and achieved
an intense hybrid of hip-hop, rock, pop and folk
with nods to Tom Waits and Beck
on the visceral and eclectic Pomegranate (2008),
and not afraid to climb erudite peaks in
Two Years Before the Mast and Trouble Hunters
while penning ditties like The Story of my Life.
Bothwell relocated first to Seattle and then to Minneapolis.
The same idea was exploited on
This is our Science (2011) in a humbler mood, yielding accomplished
songs like The River The Woods and Lift the Curse.
