Like all revelatory works, Trappy Bats was born out of a strange alignment of events. Deerhunter co-founder Moses John Archuleta — aka Moon Diagrams — found himself in a holding cell for twenty-four hours for missing a forgotten court date, reflecting on personal destruction and political upheaval, just as the Unite the Right rally took place in Charlottesville. Trappy Beats is precisely this sort of searching album, shimmering with 1980s New Age chill (or is it burnout?), squinting at the personal and the political, trying to decipher meanings.
