Ripped straight from Benji B's Radio1 show, comes three tracks from the new Actress record on Honest Jon's. The follow up to 2010's 'Splazsh', this new record is, from the sounds of this preview, a wholly darker affair, and with a title like R.I.P that's probably to be expected.
Where 'Splazsh' bubbled and hummed like a living, breathing, techno organism, 'R.I.P' skulks and swoons, hides in dark corners. 'Ascending' is so delicate and subtle, Actress gently probes at it, that if any force was put upon it then it'd collapse. Caves of Paradise owes a clear debt to the psychogeographical bass of Burial, whilst Iwwad may start off like a it's going to drop into a standard techno affair, but it's really on the brink of collapsing in on itself, using only its sample to stay afloat.
