Boomkat Product Review:
Glasgow’s Cru Servers return to 12th Isle on a subaquatic Balearic bent backed with two choice archival songs by their dad’s post-punk band CCV.
After supplying the 2nd release on 12th Isle with ‘Blubber Totum’ in 2017, Cru Servers’ Rickie & Jamie McNeill have lain low in the studio, marinating hardware in a sticky secret sauce that has become a hallmark of their chewy, downbeat productions. ‘Eel’ oozes with that special crud on eight original works that slunk in the sort of grooves also followed by Beau Wanzer’s ‘A Dead Person’s Monologue’ or the more sun-kissed grog of Glasgow’s Wormhook, all distilled to a viscous brew ideal for escaping grey Scottish skies to bask in the blacklights of subterranean club bunkers or bars.
Icing on the cake is two swaggering songs by their dad’s band CCV tacked on the end that follow their time-out-of-joint logic back to roots in the rip it up and start again ‘80s, namely the James Chance-like ‘Party Time’ and screwball electronics of ’Slot Cut Thru’.
