Astral Social Club – GENERATOR BREAKER


As the proud (and irremediably broke) feeder of an uncontrollable feline tribe, the unfortunately short “Purr” – mostly made from meowing cats – should alone suffice to welcome Generator Breaker as something useful. Spicing his pieces with intemperate extraneous factors and lots of analogue sources, Neil Campbell needs no devastating action to catch our attention: the machinations can become addictive (“Balloom” and the Fenneszian “Breaker” being perhaps the darling tracks) while keeping the dissidence factor at an acceptable level. On the other hand, “Wishaw” mixes prepotency and minimalism in perfect doses, leaving you feeling like you’ve just gone 12 rounds with Smokin’ Joe Frazier (RIP). Campbell knows how to invest in the obsessiveness of pulse to devise captivating stratagems whose consequences appear innocuous but are in fact rather tormenting.
