Boomkat product review for:

actress - Grey Over Blue (Black Label)

*Strictly Limited Black Label Edition of this new Actress twelve* A prelude to the imminent 'Ghettoville' from urbane impressionist, Actress. 'Grey Over Blue' is a freehand sketch of depressed drum machine ticks awash with crushed, Caretaker-esque classical string motifs and disintegrating keys; the sound of crumbling old buildings choked by city fumes and soaked in the city's anxieties. B-side 'Wee Bey' comes off like Terrence Dixon doing Shangaan Electro on tar and dust clogged machinery, a viscous mix of pelting, undulating bass patterns offset with trickling rhythmelodies in a ganja-fogged headspace. In a class of its own.
