Burial "Untrue"


entered apprentice
Just from experience an excess of anticipation kills these things a bit. Actually this is nothing compared to how teenagerishly thrilled I was to be listening to the new Scott Walker album last year for the first time. And whilst in that case it wasn't as good as "Tilt", I was in no way disappointed. Going by the clips at Boomkat "Untrue" is probably going to be a stronger album than the self titled debut, the familiarity of much of the sound now not withstanding. Though I'm probably more impressed with the Gregorian pitch-shift vocal science of "Near Dark" than "Archangel"...

WHY is the tracklisting diff between the vinyl and cd? thats so annoying. looking forward to this though. not even listening to the clips cos i dont wanna ruin it.

wow, this reminds me so much of my radiohead-obsessed youth (no offense, of course). on the rh forum I frequented, people were always wracked about whether they should download the (less than full quality) leak or wait for the real thing so as not to ruin it.

its not even about quality man..

it's just with burial, more than anyone else I can think of, I want the album on vinyl in my hands, in a dark room, fairly late on a quiet evening, with all the necessary materials at hand. It's an environment thing. I don't want to be listening to new burial on a computer.

I'm not even going to listen to the kode 9 mix.. although I might get tempted..

i just dont wanna ruin what is probably going to be one of my favourite albums all year by hearing bits and pieces beforehand, esp as its not even a full song, its tiny little clips in not very great quality! if it was someone i was worried about being much good then i would probably hear the snippets but since im 95% sure its gonna be interesting, id just rather just hear it in full. i know that sounds very erm 'albumist' but burial IS an album artist... not that many artists/albums im that excited for these days so might as well get adolescent about it when you can ;)

He's probably one of those ccru guys incognito, or a dissensus poster. Or maybe the guy who writes boomkat release descriptions.

That link doesn't seem to be public.

FWIW, I don't think Burial is a well known musician. I've heard this new album, and it's really darn good.

They were playing the promo in sounds of the universe on saturday. It's really good, tremulous emotional stuff.

Is anyone else making dubstep like this, or is Burial effectively a one-man genre?

Will you give Hyperdub permission to quote this on their promotional material?! ;)

He could well be Kode 9 or Blackdown, or both, but Tactics and Mos Dan seem to know something the rest of us don't :slanted:

I enjoy the anonimity.

Obviously some people here know who does the Burial stuff but I wouldn't want to spoil the fun.
