I’ve noticed a running theme with the albums I’ve reviewed recently, and that’s that I hadn’t heard of the artists before this past year. I’ve always been a music junkie, but in the last 12 months I’ve been to more concerts and listened to more albums than I have in any other year, and Astronautalis is one of the many I discovered. I first heard him at the Taste Of Minnesota festival when I saw him perform with P.O.S. and was completely intrigued by his passionate performance. I’ll post a video of the performance at the end of this post so you can see what I’m talking about. Astronautalis is known for his freestyle rap, and DANCEHALLHORNSOUND includes 3 of them, including one that is about 7 minutes long that will blow your mind. DANCEHALLHORNSOUND is actually a mix tape, not an official album release, but you could never tell the difference as far as production and content is concerned. Offered up as a pay what you want download, the proceeds were to go towards his (at the time) upcoming tour, but I’m sure he could still use whatever money people are willing to pay as he is still on an independent label and is a deserving artist in my eyes. His rapping style is very aggressive, the songs are high energy, but in all honestly, the studio tracks don’t do him justice, if you get a chance to see him live, I urge you to do so, he puts on a show that will even leave fans exhausted (in a good way). He and P.O.S. are supposed to be putting out an album together at some point next year, so definitely be on the lookout for that if you like this album. I’ll leave a couple links to songs as well as a link to where you can download the album and drop the guy a few bucks if you like what you hear.
