Gastr Del Sol Camoufleur on LP
Featuring Jim O'Rourke & David Grubbs
The two Chicago-based avant-rock gods - Jim O'Rourke and David Grubbs - exploded the boundaries, created their own text, then scrubbed the manual and started again with their collaborative project Gastr Del Sol which put out a handful of records between 1993 and 1998. Camofleur was their last record together; a collision of pop and the avant-garde, of analogue and new technologies. The contribution of Markus Popp, whose style of digital scratching has made Oval an experimental household name, adds to the density and often provides an echo of Gastr Del Sol past while the rest of Camoufleur distinctly paints the future.
