Actress - Karma & Desire

Karma & Desire by Actress

Ruffles like a good head massage

Less challenging maybe but cut from the same fabric as his previous work, this is Darren Cunningham's best album yet. The element of dishevelled shabby chic I often associate with his work remains, while the collaborations (with Zsela, SamphaAura T-09, Vanessa Benelli Mosell and Christel Well) seduce, bringing out the creative best in his wonderfully warped take on this whole glitz thing.
