Burial - Kindred EP

It's been a couple minutes since Burial (aka William Bevan), has released any new solo material.  His long awaited Kindred EP can be streamed over at the Hyperdub site.  It is available in both MP3 and WAV formats and can be bought and streamed here.

The trio of songs are characteristic of his previous output, blending sparse, ghostly arrangements over haunting, ethereal vocal samples and pulsing drum tracks that propel you into a dream realm nestled among trees that climb towards the clouds.  Check out the youtube rip for 'Ashtray Wasp' below.  The tune shifts in and out of Burial's signature moody, phrenetic energy that evolves into a glitchy, wayward breakdown, bringing to mind a foggy game of hide and seek through lush scenary at dusk.
