Actress - Ghettoville

One of the most oppressive albums out there. It has taken me a while to fully warm up to this, but now I feel like the album is a total expansion of the experimental sound Actress has been building for years. Each track is its own cold and damp experiment, taking the sounds of tech house and pushing it to the brink of destruction. The 16 songs all sound like unique soundscapes from another planet, where everything has been destroyed and this album is a deteriorating tape found in the rubble. The musical influences extend to vapourwave at points, creating songs that feel like nuggets of nostalgia that have been twisted and contorted. I'm not gonna argue with anyone who thinks it is boring or too long, but I have grown to enjoy this as one of the most overlooked albums of 2014.

BEST TRACKS: Forgiven, Corner, Rims, Birdcage, Time, Towers, Gaze, Skyline, Image, Rap, Frontline
WORST TRACKS: Street Corp., Don't
