The title of Deastro’s “Tone Adventure #3” may evoke a “working title”-like looseness–why name a song when you can simply number it?–but the track itself is one of Moondagger’s tightest. “Tone Adventure #3” is an archetypal Deastro song, as Randolph Chabot sprints through catchy, melodic passages with maniacal conviction, howling about feet being “strapped to cannon balls” from behind a wall of computer-generated atmosphere. In keeping with its title, “Tone Adventure #3” is more psychedelic than much of Moondagger, warping its instruments into unrecognizable, mutant sound-entities. Glockenspiels, spy-movie guitars, orchestral stabs, and alien ray guns all make appearances–as they should in any good adventure.

On “Tone Adventure #3″‘s B-side, Toronto electro producer I Am Robot And Proud remixes Moondagger’s “Greens, Grays, and Nordics” into a joyous, MIDI-fueled daydream. The song’s previously sinister tone gets the lo-fi electronics treatment from the Robot’s gleeful presets–the re-harmonized final chorus alone is worth the price of admission.

Real Detroit Weekly “Artist Of The Year”

Randolph Chabot has been making albums since he was 12 years old — now, at 22, the Detroit-based musician known as Deastro is ready for his close-up.

“Vermillion Plaza” the second single from Deastro’s upcoming full-length debut Moondagger, miniaturizes the album’s best assets and shoots them out of a cannon. Plucky synth arpeggios, end-of-the-world choruses, joyously careening melody lines–it’s all there, squashed into a life-affirming three minutes and 50 seconds. When Chabot pleads for contact, singing, “Would you be my son / ’cause all of mine have died?,” it’s less a cry of self-pity than an exhilarating salute to the power of human connection.

Recently, Chicago-based photographer/videographer James P. Morse–a longtime friend and collaborator of Ghostly’s–followed Chabot around Detroit for a day and edited the footage into “Ghostly Presents: Deastro,” a video profile whose warm, colorful aesthetic matches Chabot’s energy and positivity to a T. Chabot putters around his Detroit home, visits his favorite bookstore, gushes about Isaac Asimov and Simone de Beauvoir, and plays a sweaty, packed show with his band. It’s a loving portrait of an artist who stays true to his beliefs, staying passionate, engaged, and creative in all of his endeavors.

Deastro’s full-band debut, Moondagger, arrived on June 23rd, on Ghostly International.
