Burial & Four Tet – ‘Nova’

Our rating:

Shunting drums with a glitchy, melodic sensibility

Hot on the heels of Burial’s excellent ‘Kindred’ comes a new collaboration with Kieran Hebden, aka Four Tet. Burial’s shunting drums and sad-angel warbles are present and correct, but Hebden brings a glitchy, melodic sensibility that pokes early-morning sunbeams through the nocturnal gloom.
