Burial – Kindred EP (HDB059)


While half the world is out there doing important stuff like having a job, raising children or helping the homeless — big deal, right? — the rest of us are waiting in huddled groups for a new Burial release. Well, the time to rejoice is now because news surfaced earlier this week via Kode9 on Twitter that a release dubbed Kindred EP is imminent and set for both a vinyl and digital outing. Additionally, and more relevant to those of us with shallow pockets, it will also “def be less than 25 quid”, a comment referring to the inflated price of the recent Massive Attack remixes.

Anyway, my initial reading of the news was more exhilarating than the time Tommy Tucker told me Brucey Wammond had broken his arm playing hockey and therefore wasn’t able to beat me up after school, but it was nothing compared to this morning when I woke up to receive a clip of a tune from the EP titled ‘Ashtray Wasp’. Played last night on Hyperdub’s Rinse FM show, it’s only a snippet of what Scratcha DVA assures us is an 8 minute track, but it’s still exciting to hear. I’m sure there will be people telling me not to wet my pants just because it’s something by Burial, but seriously, have a listen and get back to me.

    Yeah, I hear you man. It’s been delayed because the test pressings weren’t good enough. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer! It’s good to know Hyperdub cares so much about sound quality though.
