Actress - R.I.P. (2012)
Here's a very solid experimental electronic album that fuses IDM with ambient and throws in some vocal samples for good measure. It's quite diverse and each song has a unique identity. However, I think that at least on some of the tracks there was an over-emphasis on that identity and its novelty, and not enough in the way of development and composition. But this is still a very engaging and ambitious release that fans of Aphex Twin, Four Tet etc. should be happy with.
