Burial Goes Beat-less on Spooky New EP

Burial Subtemple

In case he didn’t already make it abundantly clear via his last six solo EPs, Burial is clearly not interested in making the long-awaited—nearly 10 years now!—follow-up to his Untrue LP. Dude’s more comfortable letting his freak flag fly high on EPs that reward one’s patience and willingness to wade in the murky waters of the producer’s own distinct universe. This week’s surprise 10”, “Subtemple” b/w “Beachfires”, is especially obtuse, foregoing any semblance of a beat for two pure moods pieces. It’s available now digitally, and hitting shops on vinyl through Hyperdub next Friday, May 26th.
