Keeping up with Burial over these past few years has been a somewhat fractured experience. Since dropping his seminal Untrue LP way back in 2007 the one born William Bevan has stuck to releasing EPs, a tactic that has made it a little hard to keep up with him and his changing sound. It’s a good thing, then, that Hyperdub have got together Tunes 2011-2019. This CD compilation finds Burial selecting some of his most vital offerings from the past eight years, from recent rollers like ‘Claustro’ to the fractured dark ambient of ‘Subtemple’. In presenting his recent body of work in one place, Tunes 2011-2019 makes it plain just how profound an impact Burial has had on the sound of modern electronic music.
Sequenced by Burial, ‘Tunes 2011-2019’ shows the depth and brilliance of his post-‘Untrue’ development; from long, twisting, collage works which travel through unexpected zones, to a more pointed, poppier side, and back again to the haunted, open horizons of his beatless pieces.
This collection of Burial's work is familiar, yet unfamiliar, to each listener.
