In and out like a thief in the... daytime.


Just a quick one today...


Burial - Ghost Hardware (Hyperdub)

Bit of a slow week this week, but that's not to say that this 12" of all-new tracks from Burial isn't worthy of the SOTW title. Three absolute blinders populate Ghost Hardware, the best of which being the title track, a skittery, spooky, clanking, bass-heavy head-nodder that despite, or possibly because of all the static-y effects and concrete-esque found sounds is both alluring and oddly soothing. 'Shutta' is in a similar vein, if slyly more confrontational, while 'Exit Woundz' is even more sparse and minimal than we're used to from Burial. Arguably one of the most thrilling, idiosyncratic and forward-thinking producers that Britain has to offer.

Not much else to report today, really, other than to tell you to look out for some new mixtapes coming later in the week. It's been a while since I've uploaded any, so I thought I'd pull my finger out. I've threw quite a few together and I intend to up them over the course of the next couple of weeks, intermittently. Watch this space!

In the interim, here's something that I'm liking at the moment for your listening pleasure...

Camille - Ta Doleur (Henrik Schwarz Remix)

Not exactly new but I'm all about the Schwarz at the moment. Enjoy!

In other news: I'm on this week's Blog Fresh Radio talking about Escort. Also, check out my reviews of the new Ratatat remix album and the debut full-length from Cristian Vogel's new band Night Of The Brain over at High Voltage.
