Astronautalis

ARTIST / BAND: Astronautalis

MP3: Dimitri Mendeleev

ALBUM: This Is Our Science

FILE UNDER: Indie Pop

LABEL: Fake Four Inc.

INFO: Once you find out that Astronautalis was born to a Texas train man with a nose crooked from bar fights and a pretty Kentucky girl who ran away from home at 17 to become a photographer, it becomes clear that he didn’t stumble into the life of a drifter, he was born into it.  With a poet uncle who lived off horse betting and hitchhiking, grandfathers who were spies, sailors, and test pilots, and over 500,000 miles of touring under his own belt, you have to wonder where the tales in Astronautalis’ music end and the life of Andy Bothwell begins.  Currently settled (for now) in Minneapolis, by way of Seattle, by way of Dallas, by way of Jacksonville Beach, FL; Bothwell has spent almost every waking moment of the last 7 years on the road, playing shows, earning scars, collecting/giving tattoos, grinding out a cult like fan base, and living up to his proud, storied, and whiskey soaked blood line.
