    Just came across this interruption to an earnest online discussion about how Burial makes his beats (an interesting question to ponder, as ever):

    "Must be an European thing, sounds wack to me."

    brilliantly, scott walker talks about burial in the new stool pigeon when he gets asked if hes been listening to dubstep/hyperdub or diff kinds of electronic music. this might be a sign i need to get with the times but never would i have thought back in 2005 that scott walker would be asked about burial.

    It's funny because I was just thinking there was a similarity between recent Burial and recent Scott - all those episodic, multi-part epics.

    you really think?

    there's been barely any progression since untrue, other than the leap to the more housey and euphoric street halo and then the compositional nature of kindred but he's still using the same musical ideas. if hes going to go down the route of 15 minute songs it would come across better if they were a cohesive piece, rather than being bound together with ambience, and if he developed on his previous sound. i think four tet corrupted him.

    all of his previous work had an element of storytelling to it and the new single just sounds like dancefloor fodder that overstays its welcome. ill have to give it another listen in a bit though.

    hasn't he always produced long pieces and kode9 used to cut it up into individual tunes?

    i really liked kindred

    yeah apparently that's how its always been, but i feel that they worked better as stand alone pieces. this new release sounds more like a sketch than anything else. aimless rambling

    maybe he's decided structure is an unnecessary illusion

    also i think the fucker who i downloaded the rip from had the levels too high when he did so my version clips

    its not what i'd expect (or want) from burial and that could be the problem, its a functional piece of music and something i'd play in a club. if that's the direction he wants to go in then i'll just have to appreciate it for what it is but compared to his previous work it lacks the emotional depth i require (need) from him

    its like he doesn't love me anymore

    tbh if you're not paying for his music why would he give a fuck what you think

    neither do I but I think if you steal a low quality rip then your opinion is automatically 'worth' less (or even worthless)

    after all, if you weren't prepared to pay for it you obviously don't hold the artist or their music in particularly high esteem in the first place

    it was partly a tongue in cheek response to the 'burial doesn't love me' bit anyway. I doubt he cares for the opinions of people who steal his work.

    then again he might not care what people who pay for it think.

    When have you ever bought music other than all those grime tapes 'Patrick' ?
