Amoeba Review

04/19/2017

AZD, the heady new album from Actress, is based around the concept of chrome — specifically the way chrome reflects one’s image back at oneself, and in the way chrome seems to remove all color, leaving only a sort of black-and-white bleakness. It’s actually a perfect comparison for the outsider house on display here. The album begins, rather coldly, defined by this surface, mechanical perfection. However, there’s a turning point halfway through the album, marked by the fantastic “Runner” and its New Order-style repetitive synth beats, at which the tracks seem to break free, gaining life, momentum, and a bit of emotion that’ll sneak up on listeners. Highly recommended for fans of urban life, brutalist architecture, and experimental house.
