Album of the Week // 10-14 January

Burial - Antidawn [Hyperdub]

The record explores an interzone between dislocated, patchwork songwriting and eerie, open-world, game space ambience.

In the resulting no man's land, lyrics take precedence over song, lonely phrases colour the haze, a stark and fragmented structure makes time slow down.


Antidawn seems to tell a story of a wintertime city, and something beckoning you to follow it into the night. The result is both comforting and disturbing, producing a quiet and uncanny glow against the cold. Sometimes, as it enters 'a bad place', it takes your breath away. And time just stops.
