Always down for new Burial. He's definitely divisive around these parts but I appreciate him. Seems almost impossible to live up to his Untrue days but it's hard to judge when he hasn't had a formal LP.

Not complaining, I do love these December releases and I've come to associate his tunes with the xmas season. Excited to hear this. Rough Sleeper is his best track and I'll die on that hill every day of the week.

Yes!!..very much enjoyed on 1st listen.. wtf on wait for 2nd track though!? But like someone says above maybe its not even finished yet! And oh well at least confirmed new burial track for 2021

Do get the impression he likes just prick teasing & drip feeding odd bits and bobs, wonder if he is really is done with the album format

It's ok. Nice energy and flow. I like the fist pumping synths between 5 and 6 mins. Sound like early rave era or something. Kinda annoying vocals. I wish mr Bevan could have the guts to make a four track pure rave ep instead of the usual bits and pieces with crackle in between. Not going to do the same old mistake and put on his early works right after this.

can't he just make an LP? 

Somewhere i get that he seems too have an aversion to releasing albums. Untrue was hyped up so incredibly much it had almost reached God like status to some. By releasing an album he would have to live up to so many unrealistic and through the roof expectations that it would certainly dissapoint a lot of people even if the album was great. By releasing singles and comps he can still put out great tunes every now and then and the bar is less unreachably high. No one expects God like tracks from singles so there is less pressure for him go put out something that blows out everyones brains. Just be glad he's still active.

It just sounds like he doesn't have enough ideas to fill up an album. Sadly for Burial he's created such an iconic sound for himself that if he attempted to do anything different he would immediately be shit on by his fans.

well, i were him, i'd either release an album with the same but updated shit and test the audience with radically different music released as singles //or vice versa 

imo this is the worst! very lethargic! you have the crowd that loves your music but you're so shit up with the possibility of losing few of them so you'd rather play hide&seek with them.

I guess he has lost most of his early fans already. I believe rateyourmusic reviews/ratings could give a hint on popularity/hype. The most popular EP, Kindered had 84 reviews, and almost 7000 ratings. Last years Claustro have 4 reviews and 1100 ratings. I would guess that a new album would build some hype/pressure and a sort of comeback vibe. Untrue was a good album, but the bar isn't really that high. Think about Syro, or everytime BOC returns.

Maybe it's because of rateyourmusic's crash in popularity. Burial still has 700/800.000+ listeners per month in spotify

      As the scene's keenest scribe-cum-producer, Blackdown's blog and Keysound label were at the core of the genre’s early sound, placing him in proximity to key players including Burial. Like we mentioned, Burial’s remix of ‘Crackle Blues’ in 2006 was, just like his debut 12”, sorely overlooked at the time, and remains one of his tightest and most effective garagey/woodblock productions.
      On the ’Shock Power Of Love’ EP they check in 15 years later for a 2-step pow wow, passing the peace-pipe over cuts of Detroit-inspired garage and deep-fried, crispy London soul music. Blackdown gives clear nods to his 313 inspiration on both sides, framing his restless subs and garage swing with sampled, house declarations and soaring pads in ‘The Journey VIP’ while nodding to Juan Atkins and Red Planet via Geeneus in a remix of Heatmap’s ‘Arklight.’ Burial is at his signature best on the other two, frothing choral vocals into a scissored 2-step shuffle on ‘Dark Gethsemane’ before rolling out fathoms deep into the iridescent trance leads and scalp-stroking Reese bass licks of ’Space Cadet.’

      It's Christmas. That means one thing. Or maybe not.
       
      Would rather have had one killer Christmas track than staggered eps of blandness all year.
       
      What say the WATMM massif?

      Out on Friday. I know, the 'Burial' sound is something everyone either likes or doesn't. Sometimes I think it's nothing more than some crackling effects and tape hiss but probably there is more to it than that.
      Personally, I love the Burial mix on this. The other tracks are also good.
