MUSIC: Burial – Rival Dealer EP

by Reginald Duvivier

Burial

Ever since his critically acclaimed album Untrue, the enigmatic murky beat master Burial has apparently given up the album format. As opposed to collecting a group of fully edited songs, his past 3 releases have been 30 minute EP’s. Each EP has been separated into 3 tracks that are less fully fledged ‘songs’ but mixes that seem more like a soundtrack to a short film. Raindrops, conversations snippets, and sometimes a total lack of sound period clash against the dark bass heavy beats and disemboweled vocal samples he’s known for. This officially gets released on Hyperdub next week, peep below.
