Album Review: Walls - 'Walls' (Kompakt)

Walls' joyful wash of tuneful hooks is a wake-up call to lazy Animal Collective copyists

Alessio Natalizia of crispy electronicists Banjo Or Freakout started making music because he was waiting for his girlfriend at her house and it seemed a more agreeable pastime than talking to her flatmates. Electronica bod Sam Willis of Allez Allez was drafted in to remix his first single ‘Mr No’ and ever since they have been known as Walls. Dealing in woozy digital and analogue electronic psychedelic noise, their joyful wash of tuneful hooks is a wake-up call to lazy Animal Collective copyists with loop pedals everywhere. Feeling as fresh as Boards Of Canada, cLOUDDEAD and Spiritualized did at their inceptions this is the must-have OST for intronauts everywhere.
