Description

LIMITED TO 500 COPIES WORLDWIDE. SAND-COLORED VINYL. INCLUDES POLAROID LYRIC INSERT.

Astronautalis debut album You and Yer Good Ideas did indeed shake a few good ideas out, but most were stuck under the album's lo-fi production, which left behind little more than the impression of a pair of Southern stoners messing around with bedroom tapes. Mighty Ocean and Nine Dark Theaters presents a far different aural vista, and thus this album couldn't be further removed from its predecessor.

It doesn't, however, make categorizing Astronautalis any easier. Rap poet? Slacker soliloquist? C&W story spinner? Indie singer/songwriter? At some point or other, the artist falls into all these categories, sometimes simultaneously. The music further blurs the edges -- hip-hop rhythms; ambient, synthesized soundscapes; Available for the first time on vinyl.
