It was written that at the time of his last LP Untrue, Burial was listening exclusively to Black Secret Technology. This time around, I think he may have been clocking Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Vol.2.

The style is still recognisably Burial's of course - as I say, this is a subtle change in direction - but there's a distinct shift from the dark, Gerald-style jungle vibes of his previous work, to a queasy uneasiness more in common with early Richard D James. Of the three tracks on this EP, only "NYC" (which, incidentally, evokes anything but the Big Apple) could be in danger of being formulaic. The best track, "Stolen Dog" is a kind of beatdown "Come to Daddy" for the dubstep generation.

For those without a record player ("Street Halo" has only previously been available as a 12") this MP3 download is an excellent way to find out what Burial has been up to since the last album. I'm not holding my breath, but hopefully there's a new full length release around the corner? If it's as good as this it will be worth waiting for.

Not as good as Kindred but still worth while listening too as these are the best two EP's of the year.
