Oh gosh. Stop everything. The deity has awoken. Burial returns.
As you would expect, the man responsible for pretty much 90% of what you hear from Electronic producers today delivers two devastatingly beautiful new songs – both 11-13 minute escapades into his iconic wet-pavement, harrowed mind-state. Both ‘Truant’ and ‘Rough Sleeper’ are multi-layered, multi-chaptered engagements, clothed in the cerebral power only Burial seems able to induce. The past year or so has seen Bevan experiment with slightly lighter, more tropical 4/4 sonics – but elements across both of these new songs sound a lot like his earlier work. Hello rainy Friday.
