Street Halo/Kindred by Burial
Well the wait is over and the new EP from Burial is out. For such a long time Burial fans have been waiting, or should I say craving for his EPs and LPs to come out. The addictive nature of his tunes leaves so many of his fans in a trance state, which shakes the very nature of once soul. But would this new EP do the justice that his previous work has done many times before?
Well I can say it actually did. Ask for the Street Halo part, many people have heard it before, for those that have not it is still a good EP but to me it fell short of his previous work. But the Kindred EP is just out of this world.The songs are a bit long. All are more than 7 minutes long. Some are well above the 10min mark. So if you are not a fan of Experimental Dubstep you will easily be bored by some of these tracks. But for those that are not will be blown away.
Each track on the Kindred felt like a story being told but with now words, just the beat and the dark melody speaking to the listener. The tracks that I really enjoyed were "Ashtray Wasp" and "Loner", especially "Ashtray Wasp" which blow me away when I heard the Synthesizer in the song. Something of a first time hearing it in a Burial track.
So if you love Dubstep and Burial then get this EP from Hyperdub's most gifted artist RIGHT NOW!
