Shock Power of Love EP
Burial + Blackdown
Burial and Blackdown released this at the end of April on Blackdown’s label Keysound Recordings, catching a lot of people by surprise. They have two tracks each and it’s some of my favourite Burial material I’ve heard in a while. I don’t know if anything he releases will top Untrue both in sound and influence, but when you make something on that level I guess everything will be compared to it.
Burial’s tracks, Dark Gethsemane and Space Cadet, are less dark than previous work and are somewhat euphoric and hopeful, adding that Burial touch which is unmatched. Space Cadet is probably my favourite track off the whole EP, it’s insanely good. Blackdown’s tracks are also incredibly good. The whole EP is one you should definitely check out.
