Boomkat Product Review:
Back in stock! Two of the UK underground's central figures return under the guise of Astral Social Club for this new LP on Textile: Neil Campbell, a veteran of Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof! and other such projects hooks up with ex-Hood member John Clyde Evans (aka Tirath Singh Nirmala) for a glorious meeting of spiritual psychedelia and incisive electronic precision. There are times when you'll think you're listening to a turn of the century Mego recording - perhaps a General Magic album - especially when trawling through the uncompromising digital skipping of 'All That Glitters Is Not Chocolate'. On the other hand, you'll encounter passages of manipulated live recordings featuring a sound palette of Keystone Cops-style speed-up recordings of acoustic guitars, flocks of tweeting oscillators and other such organic, earthy noise sources. It's the meeting of a hard, computerised edge with more naturalistic elements that lends this release its potency, ultimately sounding a little like a Growing LP, but free from the perpetual motion looping that tends to come with that band's turf. Good stuff.
