8/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 January 2013
New 12” from the much heralded Actress, in fact not an actress at all but a man called Darren. The opening track starts with a clicky sound which goes on indefinitely. It is soon joined by a nice distant gentle rolling Rhodes piano sample which at least one of us think may have previously belonged to Sigur Ros. There are issues with the clicky sound and the sample being slightly out with each other which may be intentional but gives a jarring effect to what is otherwise a relaxing piece.
On the flip side the first tune is produced in such a way that it sounds like music coming out a pair of external speakers where you haven’t put the input in properly and it comes out all tinny sounding. It’s not an effect I’d ever want to use. The music is barely distinguishable, comprising of what I think is a low vocal drone and some really odd beats. The third track pulls the same trick but at a slower pace with some ‘80s drum machine type programming and the odd clank. I’ve actually just gone to check a ‘normal’ record to see if there is something wrong with the speakers. There is not. It’s obviously an artistic decision to make it sound as small as possible. Not particularly impressive but the A side is worth a punt and drills itself into your ears on repeated listens.
