December 17th apparently
is he. Sigh.
Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End) by The Darkness, but to the same melody as Archangel. Sounds pretty great in my head.
Don't let thebells end
Don't let thebells end
Doo'nt let thebells eeeend
He's been kinda prolific this last few years, I don't think I'd mind if he never did an album again when you get two quality EPs a single and a load of ace colabs this year with Four Tet, Thom Yorke, Massive Attack and Dusk & Blackdown. Sweet.
and I will take Kindred's longer evolving tracks over more numerous but shorter tracks any day.
I'd be happy with a couple of EPs a year.
Pretty sure he is predicting his rankings by naming this EP One/Two though.
Kode9 said on twitter 'it aint calld one/two by the way - just cant trust shops to keep their mouths shut' https://twitter.com/kodenine/status/275523334228283392 so yeah who knows could be old stuff could be new no idea.
that can't really include this EP, hahaha
this'll be the best somber, introspective sadsack, train-sampling holiday yet
Burial for Christmas No.1.
cos some of them do that :')
wtf is that hahahaha
They are reaching the highest heights of brooklyn there though.
that can fuck right off.
...oh god, I think ATP has turned me into an...indie.
i just hate semi-ironic bearded covers of electronic and (especially) hip-hop music.
I think half my like of it is pure beard envy.
I think they might have just killed rock music
Sounds like they're gonna be GR8
no reason to ask, just curious. i hope it's something dead incongruous with the music he makes.
you can probably tell I'm looking forward 2 this one
just downloaded. going to listen on the tube.
It'll prob ship from shops over the weekend too. I sometimes get 12"s that are meant to be out on the monday the weekend just before.
everything else I just wait until its on Spotify.
Sounded great so far.
Truant isn't great, not much of a progression and not up there with the tunes on the Kindred EP.
Rough Sleeper is brilliant though. Love what sounds like a sax on it.
Usual spots like Boomkat, Bleep, Phonica, Chemical, Redeye, prob indie spots like Norman too. There is a CD too. Most places will have it I'd have thought Hyperdub tend to press a lot for Burial nowadays and if you miss it it'll prob be back within a month with a repress.
Cheers man - They had it at Phonica....
And then I spent £47 on Burial, Joy O and Leon Vynehall records.
Early day's on the new one but so far for me:
Stolen Dog is prob one of my fave Burial bits recently so that Street Halo EP is top by far, its more focused and easier to get thru too. New 12" I love the short pasages, they're subtle and more focused than Kindred, just slight plays on a simular theme that really work even if they are also more fragmented somehow cos of the breaks and things like that. Kindred felt more clutered to me. I like it but it aint as focused and as easy to like for me.
Not as all out brilliant and fully realised as Kindred.
With all the stopping and starting and changes of tone and tempo both sides sound more like a set of partly developed sketches than properly finished tracks to me.
That said, it's enthralling and interesting and loads of bits of it are properly beautiful, especially on Rough Sleeper. He's never released a record that's not worth cherishing.
especially on Truant.
It's almost like a little mini album, with each of the parts of each side a little mini song.
It's really growing on me, but I can't help wishing the ideas had been developed and extended to make it into a full length album.
That's atrocious. Everything from the pitch-shifted vocal samples to the revving car engine and the feel of the reverb on the drum samples sounds like it's taken directly from a Burial track. Admittedly a shit one, but a Burial track nonetheless.
Nothing is sacred to Skrillex, he dulled down dupstep, now he's going after future garage. What is next for this monster?
sounds like he's followed a "make a burial track" tutorial from a production magazine or something. fucking shameless.
another reason some Burial fans give other ones a bad name haha. Skrillex should remix that Chet Faker version I posted above :')
I'm more interesting in that Ad at the bottom. Breakin' A Sweat by Skrillex & The Doors! 3D Version for Nintendo! eh???
