Astronautalis, aka Andy Bothwell, is a man with a lot on his mind. Let’s start with the basics: he’s a rapper known around the world for his hard-touring, indie/punk ethics living in Minneapolis, Minnesota -- a city that’s quickly becoming one of our favorites for music, thanks to the Doomtree and Totally Gross National Product crews, among plenty of other great acts in recent years. And while he’s certainly got the hip-hop chops to destroy any stage, Astronautalis quickly sets himself apart from the crowd by making his deep and passionate love of all genres of music -- and especially indie rock -- very apparent through conversation or even by checking out his list of collaborators on records. Smart, talented, and quick-witted, Astronautalis is changing the game. He dropped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to bring some fire with just a laptop and a microphone. Cut The Body Loose by Astronautalis is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Originally aired - December 13, 2013 It's Network Week on BTR, so I'm taking some fashion cues from a hot new addition to the style network in my hometown of Minneapolis, MN. Askov Finlayson is a craft and quality-focused boutique for men, opened in 2011 by brothers Eric and Andrew Dayton. The storefront stocks independent labels from MN, the USA, and abroad, and is part of a Minneapolis neighborhood trifecta of cool, sitting alongside the Dayton brothers' other two businesses, farm-to-table restaurant The Bachelor Farmer and the elegantly laid-back Marvel Bar. On today's show, we'll hear from co-founder Eric Dayton about why he chose to invest in the Twin Cities culture scene, a few of the local and long-distance labels carried in Askov Finlayson, their newly developed in-house label, and the quirky story behind the boutique's unusual name. Plus, a playlist full of indie Minnesota music genius, including tracks from the Eastern European-influenced Dark Dark Dark, Jagjaguwar labelees Peter Wolf Crier, Paste Magazine favorite We Are The Willows, and more. So take a wintery trip up north with me to my hometown, and embrace some its rustically refined style here on BTR!
