2007 sophomore release from the UK's mysterious and much-acclaimed Burial. Of all the artists past and present who claim to let their music do their talking for them, Untrue, is a record of weird Soul music, which lovingly processes spectral female voices into vaporized R&B and smudged two-step garage. Vocal lines are blurred, smeared, pitched up pitched down and pitch bent until their content is cast adrift from their original context and they whisper their saccharin sweet nothings into the void. Forget central heating -- the radioactivity of this album is all that you'll need to keep you warm this winter.

This is thier follow-up to "Untrue". Theres a lot going on here that might take
the average listener aback ...but thats a good thing. A combination of strange,
soulful 2 Step garage syncopations and processsed vocals make for quite the
impressive follow-up lp.
