Subwayz Selectionz 2014 21 Moire

My Top 30 Albums Of The Year

21. Moire: Shelter (Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune)
  1. Attitude
  2. Dali House
  3. Elite/Hands On
  4. Infinity Shadow
  5. No Gravity
  6. Stars
  7. Rings
  8. Mr Figure

Shelter was released back in August, and after reading a few reviews you might be forgiven for thinking that it was Actress who was responsible for the production this album. However, it was released via Actress' own record label Werkdiscs. I think that Darren Cunningham must have seen a lot of his own qualities in Moire. Shelter is a little more accessible than Ghettoville, but feels a lot more commercial, however Shelter still retains those acute techno sensibilities. There are some delicious touches of acidic squelch, mixed in with basslines, ambiance and vocals that only adds to the atmosphere. I think that Shelter is a wonderfully crafted piece of techno-related escapism.
