The Mighty Ocean & Nine Dark Theatres
(Limited Edition, 2PC)
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 it's 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. LIMITED TO 500 COPIES WORLDWIDE. SAND-COLORED VINYL. FIRST TIME ON VINYL. POLAROID LYRIC INSERT.
