Actress - Harrier ATTK (2011)

Slow-motion dubstep. Think lazy Sunday afternoon dance floor shuffle slowed down to a ridiculous 72 BPM crawl. The title track may be a reference to the 1983 computer game of the same name (except ATTK is actually attack,) or not... For this release, Actress is simply soundtracking the end of the world and putting the listener in the cockpit of a souped-up Harrier Attack helicopter. Pay close attention to the muted clicks and static brush sweeps of this epic 6:31 track. The B-side features "Gershwin," a slightly more up-tempo track that embraces the lasery blips and quasi-8-bit/synth-driven arpeggios of video games from the 80s.
