Burial - Truant / Rough Sleeper 12" (Hyperdub, 2012)

One of my favorite UK producers is back with an EP length single clocking in at about 25 minutes. Odd, but everything he does throws me for a loop, most importantly the music. Both tracks are much different than anything he's done before. Exploring flavors of 2-step to dub techno to noise, Burial experiments here in a way that shows his class, still above the rest in his "genre". Nothing sounds like him, and nothing ever will. The first track is darker than previous work, yet the second is er...umm... positive? uplifting? Yep, he even worked in a House anthem. Nothing is stagnant. Fine work from a continually impressive artist. I highly recommend the vinyl.
