Burial and his label Hyperdub have released a YouTube stream of his new EP Rival Dealer. The three-song project includes the title-track, "Hiders," and "Come Down to Us." Each record plays out with its own storyline, creating a musical tone that's as riveting as it is ominous. "Come Down to Us," for instance, starts out with a sweet melody while an Auto-Tuned voice floats above the smooth backdrop with an angelic feel. A little over halfway through the 13-minute record becomes more pressing as the drums begin to pick up. It's an experimental style executed nicely by Burial. The only complaint is that the EP isn't longer. Burial's Rival Dealer can be purchased as a digital set on Hyperdub or as a physical release at Boomkat.
