"An arbitrary succession of more or less irritating sounds"

Truth be told

Appropriate, you might think, that the first new music in an age from Burial - whose currency is absence, scarcity, reduction, erasure, er, burial - would be neither new nor, strictly, his. Yet this gossamer-wispy remix of Commix's Be True (finally surfacing for object pornsters on one-sided etched vinyl, as part of an all-star but underwhelming remix set on Metalheadz) drips presence.

It's an intense distillation, almost an X-ray of that sound - the woodblock clonk & dry clicks all but rubbed away to leave just a floating London fog of mournfulness, echoing chatter, debris...

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
