In the months after the early-2009 release of his space-rock opus Moondagger, Deastros Randolph Chabot descended into a frenzy of writing, recording new song after new song and releasing the tracks for free on his blog. Even then, his style was beginning to metamorphosegrowing layers of murky atmospherics, sprouting fizzy textures and plumes of reverbd distortion. Deastros Mind Altar EP isnt the new face of Deastro, its merely one iteration of a constantly evolving entity. The Deastro on Mind Altar shouts up from a deep well of echo, achieving a level of sonic mystery and menace thats quite new for the mercurial artist. The sky-scraping anthems are still there, although theyre now shrouded in clouds.

The eight-song Mind Altar EPoriginally released on cassette through Deastros blogcomes with three bonus tracks from the also-blog-released Orange Swimmer EP, all of which has been remastered and reissued into a cohesive, album-length EP. The record opens with the title track, a peppy, drum-machine-led chugger drenched in Chabots watery vocals which recalls a sopping-wet Broadcast, albeit one with a propensity for heartstring-tugging melody. Genesis Weapon is a slice of oddball, harmonized pop that periodically obliterated by a blast of fuzztones. On Shield Whip (from the Orange Swimmer EP), Deastro reaches for the stars in one of his finest lo-fi electro-anthems yet. Were gonna turn your sad face off, Chabot sings, were gonna lift the low man upan uplifting sentiment, but given the tracks abrasive textures, it sounds like the sad-faced low man might be Chabot himself.
