If future EPs are as solid as this, he can keep that third album under the grill forever.

The grid of his computer screen is less rigid, and consequently, there is less access into the song's core because there are multiple cores, each a little world onto itself, a degree zero, an island.

It’s a kind of clotted and autistic facsimile of dancefloor communion – not quite the elegiac mourning of rave that Burial’s supposedly known for, so much as a deeply alienated re-interpretation of it.

Kindred as a whole is easily the most exciting Burial release since Untrue redefined dubstep way back in 2007.
