Kindred Spirits

IF YOU TRACED back the lineage of pitch shifting vocals and gloomy breakbeats, chances are all roads would lead you to a common source, Hyperdub’s cornerstone producer Burial, whose Untrue LP, although released back in 2007, is still one of the archetypal albums of the 21st Century.

Burial is back with a new EP, Kindred, and to celebrate the occassion, Hyperdub launched their webshop, giving you an opportunity to stream the whole EP in full.

The title track is by far jazner‘s favorite, a rainy day trudge of aggressive skittering beats with Burial’s signature bleating R&B vocal snippets manipulated throughout the track. “Loner” is also one worth giving a few listens to.

Although available digitally, vinyl copies have been delayed due to a miscue in the test pressings. But be sure hop over to the webshop in the meantime for a little perusing.
