Bought for the Burial mix. Dark, sensual song. The bass comes across a lot more like someone actually playing a bass synth as opposed to sampling a Reese and such. Absolutely beautiful track that draws you in with the vocal and build. Makes you feel like you're exploring a hidden side to a city and being welcomed into a secret fold where magic really is everywhere.
B-side, particularly the Vocal Remix, is similarly captivating. What a wonderful surprise.
Really loving the Charles Webster versions on here. Both of them! Is the Burial mix intentionally impeded to make it sound like a G+/VG recording that was left in someone's attic for 30 years? The level of noise is pretty rough to listen past. I notice the youtube sounds like the vinyl.
I'm sure I feel as if I was led to believe by media this was an old song refixed and repackaged. Anyone else feel that? I have always loved Charles's stuff but I'm very partial to Burial so bought it more for that. Sweet stuff all round. I think it's quite dark for Charles, but i could be talking horse.
So I was listening to Side A, and suddenly the bass drops and it goes all shadowy, dark, vague and depressing. I said to my gf, its almost like this is a Burial remix. And it is! A Burial remix which is such a statement of what Burial is, that it's almost a parody. It works though
