Download: Burial – Truant / Rough Sleeper

Burial follows up his masterful Kindred EP with the nearly 25-minute 12″, Truant b/w Rough Sleeper, making his 2012 output clock in an early an hour.

“Rough Sleeper” is much more soulful than the title track, and would actually feel right at home in Kindred‘s gooey center. On the other hand, “Truant” essentially pick up where Kindred‘s “Ashtray Wasp” left things off, piling on a nervous energy that manifests itself in an indecisive, vignette-like groove. It’s a brilliant patchwork-peek into one of the most interesting minds in music today.

Update: listen to/buy the single here.
