Deastro‘s Moondagger album is one of the freshest forms of electro infused indie rock that I’ve heard in a long time. Seriously. Check it out if you have the chance. Will Tompkins aka Vancouver’s Van Benton (one half of the duo Nino Van Benton) recently conjured up a superb remix of the stellar “Toxic Crusader” track off of Moondagger. Van Benton doubles the size of the track and morphs into into a abstract electronic dance floor wonder. Check it and the original right here:
mp3: Deastro – Toxic Crusader (Van Benton Remix)

If you really dig Deastro (and why wouldn’t you) then I recommend keeping up on Randolph Chabot and his blog which features free remixes (like the Van Benton one), EPs, and some sweet collages. Check it.
Pick up a copy of Moondagger from Ghostly International.
