Hotcakes introduces… Deastro

Deastro is Randolph Chabot, a 22 year old artist from Detroit who makes indie-electronic crossover stuff (indietronica?)  and is rather good at it. A mixture between Passion Pit’s electronic underpinning, Empire of the Sun’s fantastical imagery and M83’s ethreal sound and there you have it. According to his Myspace, the album “recounts a dream [Randolph had] about a prince, a kingdom, an evil King of Darkness, and a search for the mythical “Moondagger,” the bearer of which wields ultimate power”. Indeed.
