Burial dropped a surprise new single today called “Rodent”, his first release since May’s Subtemple/Beachfires EP, it following November 2016’s Young Death/Nightmarket. You can stream it and buy it below via Bandcamp. The single is backed by Kode9 remix.
In a welcome pivot from his last two entries, Burial brings back the beats with “Rodent”, his first four-and-a-half minute long song in what seems like forever. After luxuriating in the obscure and often alienating outer reaches of ambient dub for nearly a year, “Rodent” feels something like Burial going back to basics.
