Archive - The False Foundation album review
London electronica collective Archive’s bleak but bold return.
Darius Keeler’s adventurous post trip-hop project is one of those acts that have flown consistently under the radar of mainstream acclaim in the UK, yet that only makes them more of a cherished best-kept secret to their fans. This 10th studio album will certainly keep the cognoscenti happy, and might recruit a few new converts too. Beautifully desolate opening track Blue Faces has a mournful midnight piano, accompanied by a despondent, fragile vocal.
