Walls – “Urals” – [Kompakt Schallplatten]
Sam Willis and Alessia Natalizia’s third and last album as Walls; alt-techno music bouncing between aggressive beats with delicate guitar lines mixed in and more ambient/cosmic synthesizer soundscapes, even some electro Moroder disco and Tangerine Dream elements as contributions. It also has traces of EBM (Electronic Body Music.) Some of the material reminds me of James Holden’s recent escapades. This short album took four years to make and they had plenty of time to figure out what each track consisted of.
