there is barely a day that goes by when this little number doesn't get played in the shop of all the artists past and present who claim to let their music do their talking for them burial is one of the elite band of whom this truly is the case in fact so reluctant is he to engage with the cultofpersonality hoopla that surrounds almost every modern producer and musician of merit that he remains a genuine recluse he has never appeared live only one obliquelyangled publicity photograph is known to exist and the number of interviews he has given can be counted on the fingers of one hand yet despite this his music speaks loud and wide and the world has been listening ever since his 'south london boroughs' ep debut on hyperdub in march 2005 burial returns with 'untrue' a new record of weird soul music which lovingly processes spectral female voices into vaporised rampb and smudged 2step garage vocal lines are blurred smeared pitched up pitched down and pitch bent until their content is cast adrift from their original context and they whisper their saccharin sweet nothings into the void the album continues with the debut's crackledrenched yearning and bustling syncopations haunted by the ghosts of rave but also reveals some new burial treats with a more glowing upbeat energy kicking off with the skittering 2step syncopations and vocal science of 'archangel' 'near dark' and 'ghost hardware' before long it descends into a space of radiant divas and ambience where 'burial' first was humid suffocating and unrelentingly sad 'untrue' is less sunless many of the tracks are so sweet they become toxic underscored by the almost geological rumbles of growling basslines unlike the overpoweringly melancholic prevailing mood of before burial's sound is now better defined as a downcast euphoria typified by the epic muted optimism of the album's last track 'raver' forget central heating the radioactivity of this album is all that you'll need to keep you warm this winter
