Astronautalis is to hiphop what Radiohead is to Britpop. Sure, there might be some vague similarities lingering about, but the splendid catalog of this Minneapolis (via Seattle, via Texas, via Florida) emcee transcends the simple predictability of beats and rhymes. It took him a couple years, but the just-released This Is Our Science is a far more refined work than its conceptual predecessor, Pomegranate. With no two songs alike, Science covers a colossal stretch of musical real estate with its nimble title track, the dizzying Tegan Quin duet "Contrails," and the confessional simplicity of "Measure the Globe," where Astronautalis does something I assume no other rapper has ever done before: namedrop Kevin Seconds.
