Deastro’s Keepers is one of the most bounce-off-the-walls joyful records we’ve ever laid ears on. The brainchild of a young singer/songwriter/producer named Randolph Chabot, Keepers contains the sort of candy-colored pop nuggets that get us all smiley and teary-eyed at the same time. (SPIN likes Keepers’ “bubblegum tunes and swooning vamps,” and eMusic says Chabot “has pop star written all over him.”) Deastro’s Keepers was formerly available only on eMusic, but now, through Ghostly, you can buy it in all your usual MP3-buying places.
We should also mention that “Parallelogram” – the first single from Deastro’s next album Moondagger – is also up for download at The Ghostly Store. “Parallelogram” (and its B-side “Carol Gilligan”) features Chabot fronting a full live band, and places Deastro’s boundless energy in some ecstatically rock-y new territory.
