Andrew Douglas Rothbard
(Peaking Mandala, 2009)
This blurb writing thing is already getting belabored. I'm sorry. I think that after this is all said and done I am going to feel as exhausted as I assume Andrew Douglas Rothbard was after finishing this album. So, Mr. Rothbard: Caribou + Prefuse 73 + possibly even more ideas than those two artists imply. Exodusarabesque just drips of creativity blooming all over the place. A really great, sorely under-recognized album from this year (and one of the few that I was sure belonged on this here list).
