Alternative music and hip-hop rarely mesh well, but when done right, the combination is a praiseworthy feat. Linkin Park tried for years and—though mainstream America may disagree—they never quite pulled it off. Charles Andrew Bothwell’s brainchild, Austronautalis, excels for a couple of reasons. First, he’s an insightful songwriter (see “Measure the Globe”). Sure, there are many serious hip-hop artists, but not a lot of alt. ones. Another reason is that Austronautalis doesn’t travel the ironic road. At first, I thought his songs might be a joke, but soon saw that the subject matter is legit, which makes his work profound. And he adds just the right amount of fuzz to keep things interesting. Bothwell will drop his “indie-folk-historical-fiction-hip-hop” at this 13-and-over gig.
