about

あらゆるジャンルを飲み込み全てを浄化させる地球規模の大パレード。カンやノイ!のクラウト・ロック、ケミカル・ブラザーズのテクノ、ソニック・ユースのノイズ、クラークの轟音IDM、フライング・ロータスが拡散してきたビデオゲーム的8ビット・サウンド、それらすべてが混在している(事実、2007年には元カンのヴォーカリスト、ダモ鈴木と共演)。まさにダンス・フロアのピークタイムにおける高揚感と絶頂感を、圧縮パッケージしたかのように超濃厚。柔らか、綺麗目な音楽が溢れる昨今、たまには猛々しくも繊細な音楽に爆音で打ちのめされたい!!!!
マスタリングはアンビエントアーティストのChihei Hatakeyama、ラストトラックにはこれまた日本の奇天烈紳士ユニット、くふき によるリミックスを収録。

Neil Campbell has been around for a long time, hacking out sound from whatever comes to hand since the end of the 1970s. Between then and emerging in his current solo Astral Social
Club
incarnation he's played under too many names to remember, let alone list, but perhaps most
notably as a core member of Vibracathedral Orchestra, The A Band and Iibiis Rooge, and in
collaboration with people like Richard Youngs, Robert Horton, Dylan Nyoukis and Matthew
Bower.
Astral Social Club both continues and upends some of the obsessions apparent in his earlier
work, with sustained tones evolving through a restless pulsing textural throb, electronically
refracted, constantly on the verge of tipping over into outright chaos, always pushing
forward.
"Magic Smile" is the new pro-pop CD from Astral Social Club, with 7 shiny and splintered new
tunes, plus a special remix by Japanese wonder boys Kufuki. These tunes range from the
twisting 13 minutes of the opening "Rubber Lagg", through the succinct plainsong of the title
track, to the full-on riot that is "FRWRKZ RWRK". In places it's utterly freewheeling and
joyous, at others full of fire and anger. No stone is left unthrown. Everyone gets kissed.
"Magic Smile" is his second Japanese CD release, following "Happy Horse" in 2010.
