Walls' eponymous 2010 debut album was praised for applying lo-fi pop structures to the kind of slo-mo beats that aligned them with their peers on Kompakt. As such, Coracle is stylistically all over the map, with the pair behind Walls indulging vastly different parts of their personalities through the mostly instrumental tracks.
Label /. Kompakt KOMPAKTCD91. Now, for their second album in as many years for Kompakt, Coracle, the duo-Alessio Natalizia and Sam Willis-have returned with what feels like a noticeably more coherent and muscular approach to ambient techno-rock. Which is certainly not to insinuate that, from the surface, the duo have changed all that much.
The problem with Walls' eponymous debut album from last year is that it didn't quite have that requisite personality, at least not to my ears. But Coracle is a big improvement from there. The cover artwork, font, layout, and song titles may make it seem like exactly the same generic dreamy electronica (they're nothing if not consistent with visuals), but musically Willis and Natalizia have upped their game tremendously.

It is certainly a step up, and a step on, from their debut. There’s more to digest, and WALLS’ personality becomes more evident. Possibly an album of the year for the wider populous, then, rather than something semi-secret admired only by exclusive listener sets.
