  • Summary: This is the latest album for Randolph Chabot, who had a track on his label's "Adult Swim" album "Ghostly Swim."

  1. Positive: 4 out of 8
  2. Negative: 0 out of 8
  1. Moondagger is a tune-rich excursion into lo-fi romanticism, with 'Parallelogram’s' multitracked vocals harmonizing over a groundswell of glockenspiels sharing DNA with Animal Collective.
  2. Far from the naval-gazing, self-conscious banality one might expect from such a young artist, Moondagger is filled with moments of philosophical prowess and intelligence.
  3. It's accomplished and impressive always, but sometimes to the point of verging on an overstuffed din.
  4. There's nothing here that sounds di?erent to the countless other acts doing the same thing: there's nothing otherworldly about being so quotidian.
  5. Deastro never succumb to trite suburban ennui affections, sounding like they're having the time of their lieves as they navigate the percolations and gurgles of this riotous album. [Summer 2009, p.70]
  6. It's exhausting but charming. [Aug 2009, p.104]
  7. 40
    If his lyrics do have merit Chabot obscures them with generic electro-riffs. [Aug 2009, p.98]
