Sam Willis and Alessio Natalizia, who together make music as Walls, have started up a new label, Ecstatic. The first full length album from the label keeps things in the family with Alessio - who has also released as Banjo Or Freakout - putting out 'Umwelt' under the name Not Waving. Following on from a series of EPs of sprawling arpeggiated electronics, the album continues in a similar vein with nine tracks of esoteric pulsations and '80s-inspired post-punk tooled for the weirder end of the dance floor.

From throbbing and dizzying - "Sicklerville Blackwood" - to light and sweeping - "Nemrut Dagi" - it's a record with range. The plucking "Kesswil", with its robotic vocals and steadily building static is pleasingly odd, while "Mansfield Underhill" is a doomy piece of immaculate D.I.Y. darkness. Final track "Truth Or Consequence" comes closes to the sun-scorched electronics of Walls, but is rougher around the edges. Truly special. Comes on red vinyl, mastered by Sonic Boom of Spaceman 3.
