Boomkat Product Review:
Second Storey, the new alias of Al Tourettes, presents a complex, tortuous solo debut LP on Houndstooth. Clearly inspired by classic AFX and Autechre, with 'Double Divide', he draws on a deep reserve of melancholy UK bass/techno expressions to realise his most intricate and outstanding compositions to date. Freed of the immediate need to drive a dancefloor, Storey invites the listener deeper into previously unobserved parts of his sound with a ten track narrative vacillating between swirly wormholes and spacious yet knotted grooves in a quicksilver play of tension and release, or light and dark themes. The percolating bubblers techno of 'Shaman Champagne' aside, they're all new productions, a shape-shifting mass of wonky techno-tronix akin to the slippery grooves of Cristian Vogel or Neil Landstrumm in 'Reserved' or 'Combustion Hallmark' serrated with radiophonic black holes such as 'Protozoan Milkshake' and the frazzled funk of 'Trope', and squashed in dazzling new forms of 'The Overview Effect (Parts 1 & 2)' or the bittersweet tang-le of 'Chordelia'.
