Long-suffering routine offender Michael Berdan and his new project Canal Street Electronics further displays his dogged persistence in the pursual of electronic Valhalla. Watching and listening to his forays into this field over the years has been nothing short of amazing: this is a man who was so fiercely up against the wall, beaten, broken down and seemingly defeated. This sense of defeat has invoked a fierce reality and flight or fight mechanism throughout all his work, with Canal Street Electronics sounding like the most effective culmination of a lifetime of disappointment and a realization that succumbing to such tragedies was never an option. This is Berdan fighting, brawling, and overwhelming his enemies within and triumphantly seizing that spark of alarming spirit which burns inexorably inside of him. Beautifully ugly, terrifyingly honest, and most of all bitterly powerful. This is Berdan at pure, peak performance.
