A few posts back I said I was waiting on a much-anticipated vinyl record to arrive from England, and it did so last week. I was a little worried that it might arrive damaged in some way, perhaps warped, but it arrived in perfect condition…thanks Royal Mail and Japan Post!
The record is a 12″ Burial single called Truant / Rough Sleeper, two tracks that run for a total of 25 minutes. The songs are comprised of several parts, with each part separated by a short silence, which is something I have not heard in a Burial song before. But, it is still pure Burial gold, and having a Burial release on vinyl makes it even more special.
Here is a good review which explains the record far better than I ever could.
Certainly this is the most prized record in my small collection, and it will probably stay that way.
Listen to the tracks here.
