Astronautalis - The Mighty Ocean & Nine Dark Theatres (2006)

1. Short Term Memory Loss
2. Meet Me Here Later
3. Seaweed Sheets
4. Lost At Sea (Part 1: That Old Sin)
5. (Part 2: The Getaway)
6. A Love Song for Gary Numan
7. Barrel Jumping (A Man of Letters)
8. Astigmatism
9. Skeleton (Everybody's Favorite)
10. My Dinner with Andy
11. Xmas in July
12. Down and Out in the Bold New City
13. Meet Me Here Later (Reprise)

And now for something completely different.
Unlike the last few bands, Astronautalis (real name Andy Bothwell) is definitely still active, and definitely not folk-punk. Sort of white-guy indie hip-hop similar to Buck 65 or Why?

I was debating whether to post Astronautalis' debut album You and Yer Good Ideas or this, his sophomore album. I went with this one just because it's so goddamn good. Check it out, enjoy it, buy the new album if you like it.
