Jeee-sus, this guy is good …

Let's just get this out there: Astronautalis goes hard as heck. He's arguably one of the best underground artists on the circuit, and the undeniability of it grows with each release. Everything this man touches turns to certifiable moon dust, a much more rare and appealing physical structure than, say, platinum? We don't know, what else is better than platinum? Mars dust? Alien sneezes? Whatever, he's good. Bottom line. 

And so the library continues to flourish with Andy Bothwell, the fervent poet with a microphone and enough knowledge between his ears to make grown men cry. His latest, "Sike!" is a hard-slapping pop of a "comeback" track (he hasn't released a full album since This Is Our Science  way back in 2011) — and the first single from his upcoming album, release date still TBD.
