Picks Of The Week

Posted February 8, 2015 By admin

It’s been a while since I posted here, and I’m excited to return with one of my favorite feature, my Picks Of The Week. For this unfamiliar with it, I basically gather the best songs I’ve added to my collection in the past week and share them here. Pretty simple, right? Hopefully you discover something new you enjoy, but if not, there’s always next week.

Astronautalis-This Is Our Science

Posted September 13, 2011 By admin

I came home today to find the new Astronautalis album in the mail. I had heard the album about a week ago through a free preview thanks to Absolute Punk, and was impressed with what I heard. I’ve been a fan of Andy (his given name) for quite a while. I first saw him perform at Taste Of MN with P.O.S, and have been hooked ever since. His most recent album is titled This Is Our Science, and is a biographical album according to the artist himself. I had heard a few of the songs in concert and loved them, they had a ton of energy behind them, as do most of his songs, but these ones seems to have more passion than the others. In particular, tracks like “Holy Water” and “Dimitri Mendeleev” find Astronautalis completely losing himself in the song, as if nothing else in the world matters but these next few minutes. That kind of honesty is hard to find in music these days, and it just makes you appreciate it that much more when you can find it. So, feel free to preview the album here, and if you like what you hear, be sure to pick up the album here, your local record store, or at the iTunes store.

  • Holy Water (Removed by request)
  • Dimitri Mendeleev
