...sounds like shes on his nutz big time !

pollywog, Wednesday, 17 October 2007 10:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

i like how his hi-hats sound like scissors. do they still sound like that?

Jordan, Wednesday, 17 October 2007 14:22 (nine years ago) Permalink

that announcer woman is in love with burial. and kode9 a little bit, too.

LaMonte, Wednesday, 17 October 2007 17:12 (nine years ago) Permalink

She's like that with everything, really. I want her to narrate my life: 'and now … the most incredible, lovely piece of toast that ever came out of a toaster … mmmm'

That said, 'the stage is yours' made me cringe.

Music's tops though.

Liked the description of the high-hats as scissors upthread – now I'm always going to think of that!

dude, i am lolling so hard...

...I hate hi hats that sound like scissors, makes me want to cut myself just to feel alive

burial really loves the forrest whitaker samples.

From Ghost Dog yeah?

Brakhage, Thursday, 18 October 2007 17:40 (nine years ago) Permalink

and in the mix of new album linked upthread there is a sample of his oscar speech....

i liked him before he started playing the PR game and doing broadsheet interviews.

The ill-ec-tro-nic has mp3s of "Near Dark" and "Etched Headplate" posted (from Hyperdub promos of the album)

"i liked him before he started playing the PR game and doing broadsheet interviews."

he was doing interviews about being elusive before the first lp came out:

pipecock, Friday, 26 October 2007 01:08 (nine years ago) Permalink

he only did one interview last time. now, hes doing loads. still, if it makes him and kode 9 a bit of money, then cool. these interviews remind me of the early ones with afx in a cult of personality kind of way.

titchyschneiderMk2, Friday, 26 October 2007 09:20 (nine years ago) Permalink

grey, washed-out, cheap-looking, pseudo-arty video for "ghost hardware" (sort of everything vahid accuses burial of being, musically):

not doing broadsheet is also playing the PR game. cf belle and sebastian.

That one guy that hit it and quit it, Monday, 29 October 2007 18:51 (nine years ago) Permalink

at the time I think would actually be leveling that accusation more at the entire genre than at burial in particular.

although lately i've been coming around to dubstep quite a bit more. i think it was repeat listens to scuba's post-electro almost-ambient-techno tracks ("brown", "twista", "harpoon"), distance's "my demons" album and kode 9's incredible "magnetic city" that got me there.

i might give burial a 2nd chance, as long as it's less lame atmospherics (qawwali singing and blues loops? do you people listen to peace orchestra too?) and more scissory 2-step beats (loved "unite"!)

for the record, my favourite burial thing is his remix of jamie woon's "wayfaring stranger".

at least, until i heard this "unknown remix" on thisisnotanexit's latest mix, that i'm listening to for the first time right now.

jermainetwo, Tuesday, 30 October 2007 05:50 (nine years ago) Permalink

up on

you can stream but no dl til the 5th

Brakhage, Friday, 2 November 2007 20:41 (nine years ago) Permalink

'archangel' really is terrific.

jermainetwo, Saturday, 3 November 2007 04:11 (nine years ago) Permalink

i like this one more than the first one even after only a couple listens

ciderpress, Saturday, 3 November 2007 07:08 (nine years ago) Permalink

i haven't been this excited for an album for a long time. it's going to be so hard to resist downloading it before the cd comes in the mail.

leaked? i saw it in the store two days ago...

willem, Saturday, 3 November 2007 09:51 (nine years ago) Permalink

i think the vocal sample on the opening track "untitled" is from "INLAND EMPIRE". i wasn't too fussed about the first record but from the stream (that doesn't stream) on bleep this sounds incredibly great. really looking forward to it.

jed_, Saturday, 3 November 2007 16:05 (nine years ago) Permalink

Loving it on first listen, in particular 'Archangel' and 'Etched Headplate', although the ghostly diva thing can wear a bit thin listening to the whole thing in one sitting. Also cool how 'Raver' flirts with minimal house.

tpp, Saturday, 3 November 2007 18:32 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah this album is really really good if you don't mind the fact that it's fairly homogenous

i think the title track is my favorite right now

ciderpress, Saturday, 3 November 2007 18:36 (nine years ago) Permalink

Where is it Oink when I need it ... Argh.

MP3 and FLAC release for those of you unwilling to wait till Tuesday.

(For a legal download that is.)

Feeling this one.

Siah Alan, Monday, 5 November 2007 02:25 (nine years ago) Permalink

It arrived in the post today. Only heard it once yet, don't know whether I'll like it more or less than the first one, but it feels like more of an album than the "a loose collection of partial tunes you might hear from open windows while walking through a city night" concept of the debut.

StanM, Monday, 5 November 2007 12:14 (nine years ago) Permalink

'shell of light' has a very pretty, sentimental outro - strikes me as a sincere celebration of the breadth of pop emotionalism (like all the studio remixes do).

still encourage all to check out the 'thisisnotanexit' exclusive remix thing.

jermainetwo, Monday, 5 November 2007 17:17 (nine years ago) Permalink

oh my GOODNESS i am loving this. perfect for the end of daylight saving, huh

nervous, Monday, 5 November 2007 23:32 (nine years ago) Permalink

takes flight and carries right on where the first album left off in an upwardly mobile progression...

...don't know if i could go a third album with them same drums and would love to hear someone like reso, toasty, boxcutter or elemental fuck with a tune or three

loops nicely and quietly in the background while doing some late night 'puter work though...

...i likes it

i wonder why he changed the original 'homeless' to 'dog shelter' and called another tune 'homeless' ???

Archangel wins.

Did anyone hear his Bloc Party remix yet?

StanM, Tuesday, 6 November 2007 07:54 (nine years ago) Permalink

was thinking of cloning the burial sound and putting it out there as a 'lost' leak track just for laughs...

...but i imagine he'll probably do it himself

pollywog, Tuesday, 6 November 2007 11:28 (nine years ago) Permalink

Lofi but nice sample of that Bloc Party remix:

StanM, Wednesday, 7 November 2007 12:32 (nine years ago) Permalink

turns out the untitled remix I was referring to above *is* the bloc party remix... it's really great.

jermainetwo, Wednesday, 7 November 2007 20:55 (nine years ago) Permalink

the one on thisisnotanexit's mix? wow

i assume bloc party sounds nothing at all similar to that?

lucas pine, Wednesday, 7 November 2007 21:06 (nine years ago) Permalink

No, not at all. They're an uptempo rock band.

"art-punkers Bloc Party mix angular sonics with pop structures." (from AMG)

StanM, Wednesday, 7 November 2007 21:53 (nine years ago) Permalink

cheers for that thisisnotanexit tip, jermainetwo. (much better sounding & longer than that record store sample)

StanM, Wednesday, 7 November 2007 22:35 (nine years ago) Permalink

i'll be looking forward to the "high-tech darkside" album he put off to do this one. it is lovely tender, though.

faso, Wednesday, 7 November 2007 23:43 (nine years ago) Permalink

The album suddenly clicked for me, first thought it was a bit samey and maybe kinda boring even, but last night, in the dark, with headphones, it just, wow.

StanM, Thursday, 8 November 2007 09:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

Very samey, very boring. One track sounds almost identical to a track on the debut (I mean, even within the extremely narrow confines of this guy's style it was like "have a second idea please").

unperson, Thursday, 8 November 2007 11:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

There's a digital release for that Bloc Party remix too, by the way (£0.79, available from Monday)

StanM, Thursday, 8 November 2007 16:22 (nine years ago) Permalink

copy & paste that whole line (or click the second of the four identical yellow/black covers you see there)

StanM, Thursday, 8 November 2007 16:23 (nine years ago) Permalink

oh hey I'd like this but 25 pounds probably not going to happen

this is going to be on discogs for 100 in two weeks, right?

( ) (mh), Monday, 10 October 2011 18:27 (five years ago) Permalink

not a one-trick pony. see, e.g., the stuff i mentioned above (the four-tet collaboration; street halo EP, which -- far from being totally downcast, moody affairs -- is music with a beat, that you can play in the summer sun). this track, however, moves back toward bleak soundscapes.

Daniel, Esq., Monday, 10 October 2011 18:36 (five years ago) Permalink

I was thinking, what with the work with Jamie Woon, that Burial was moving towards making genuine SONGS. "Fostercare" and "NYC" are almost recognizable ballads, Imo. This is a surprise. It's ok... a bit thin...

Mercer Finn, Monday, 10 October 2011 19:14 (five years ago) Permalink

i wouldn't take it as strong evidence either way. it's a one-off project, apparently.

and you're right. overall, the recent trend for burial is toward more songs.

Daniel, Esq., Monday, 10 October 2011 19:20 (five years ago) Permalink

i ordered two copies. i wish burial would use a different sound palette.

brotherlovesdub, Monday, 10 October 2011 19:41 (five years ago) Permalink

four weeks pass...

$480 on Ebay already

shit, i better put my spare copy up while the iron is hot

got my copy of this in the mail today. it's pretty great, but i'm thinking of selling it...
