Second Storey and Appleblim Present ALSO

From the press release:
“ALSO (Appleblim and Second Storey) present their stunning debut LP for R&S comprised of their critically acclaimed trilogy of EPs. Opener “Arpemonger” – an exclusive track to the release that sees the duo of Laurie Osborne and Alec Storey stretching their classic IDM influences – leads into the uptempo cyborg funk of “Blyford Bass,” heavyweight bass of “Dive Prophets” and bleeping synth squiggles “Formation” – this is an album that really benefits from good headphones and repeated listens to truly get lost in their musical intricacies. Ever since they first met and bonded over a shared love of machine rhythms and sleek electronic grooves, the pair have been hard at work on pushing their creative boundaries to the limit, never content to take the easy route – as Laurie explains, “if that means broken rhythms, and non-traditional melodies then so be it. There’s so many people making sonically ‘correct’ or refined 4×4 music, we just wanted to explore everything other than that, whilst still keeping the dance floor moving.” These heavy studio / live loose jams sessions have borne truly verdant musical fruit inspired as much by classic R&S alumni from Aphex Twin to Blawan and the Detroit axis of Carl Craig and Juan Atkins. ALSO is pan genre, pan generational, emotive electronic music at its best, truly something special and a fine addition to R&S’ rich heritage of forward-thinking dancefloor sonic artistry.”
ALSO is out April 7 on R&S Records; listen to “Blyford Bass” below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz.
