MUSIC: Actress – Grey Over Blue
by Reginald Duvivier
The enigmatic producer Actress is about to release his newest record, Ghettoville, on 1/27 on Ninjatune. According to the cryptic press release, it might be the last (“Ghettoville is the bleached out and black tinted conclusion of the Actress image.”).
While Darren Cunningham’s productions were visceral in the beginning over time his work as Actress has become about atmosphere…drums and synths clang deep in the background while day to day noise whispers in your ear. It made his last record, R.I.P. a pretty haunting listen. As a warning shot he’s dropped a quick 12 inch with two new non-album tracks. Listen to one of them below.
