I don't really like Young Death, but I really enjoy Nightmarket! It's a genuinely fresh sound for burial, but still recognisable coming from him.

It's just unfortunate that this is another mixed bag release from him. A third track might have helped it. I hope he drops another Kindred or Truant, or better yet an Untrue!

As ever I am left scratching my head as to how Burial makes his compositional decisions; as in, how to place *what* *where*, add this sample over *here*, etc. I mean, I suppose one could wonder the same of any music but these more recent Burial 'vignette collection' tracks stand so far outside of traditional composition & arrangement that I really can't predict where the track will take me as I listen, repeated sample choices and aesthetics not withstanding.
And, as with past releases, I love the perfectly imperfect production, the way lossy pitch-shift artifacts are embraced rather than hidden, all the clicks from hastily cutting and pasting mp3 samples and then throwing a reverb over it, warts and all... It could all either be completely slap-dash or he may have spent the better part of the past year making only these two tracks and agonising over each crackle. It's not for us to know, nor would I want to particularly. All I know is that his music appears to come from a genuine place and it moves me.

nightmarket sounds like it could be on the drive soundtrack if it was always raining in that film and if ryan gosling was less handsome and crying all the time. Brillo stuff, forget the negativity, this some good music

Oh this really is great. Nightmarket is a new sound and atmosphere - quite filmic. A very addictive play as gets better each listen.

I wouldn't be surprised if I saw Burial moving onto movie soundtracks or something along those lines.

Immense. Every single release is just immense

Burial has matured. Hopefully if you've been listening to his music from the start, you've matured too. Yes the early days were great, but this for me is his best release to date.

Hopefully this will encourage people to explore the more experimental side of electronic music.

The frontier....

I agree fully with Willsy, i was just as shocked as anyone else by Burials change or redirection of sound and concept in "Rival Dealer." i was like... wow disco.. and loudness. but his messages are powerful throughout and like all other great slow burners, i grew to love every squeek, click and agonizing fade out. Burial is blue balling personified, it seems the more people ask, the less he provides. But his short and sweet pressings are so delightful and will help keep my bottle filled and home fires burning for many months to come. Every note is precious. So stop complaining. He will only give what he wants to give. I disagree that these pieces are "watery sketches"... i can imagine Will leaning over a laptop and agonizing over every inch of this piece of music. I definately feel that though young death has a more powerful message of sadness and comfort from a parent to a child.. Nightmarket is the stronger and more catchy of the two tracks i feel. It really captures everything i have always loved about burial. The feeling of cold buzzing florescent lights in a 24 hour Tesco express, the warmth of a take away cuppa on a rainy walk to the night bus, a feeling of wet concrete and splashy murky puddles. The cosy melancholy that only comes from a cold city heartbeat. Poppy keyboards and what sounds like the first thumpy kick of an 808 loop... but alas.. more crackle and fizz to follow.. you bloody tease!
Thanks Burial, you never fail to bring me joy, and you never fail to get me through the tough times! Cheers to many more sporadic and surprising musical morsels!
