Music The Art of Burial
This is a comment to my most recent Line Out post about a musician whose work has captivated me since first hearing it back in early April, Burial:
the imagery conjured up by Burial’s music is so vivid and hanuting. i’ve never been able to visualize music (without chemicals) in the way this music touches my imagination. it’s both alien and deeply personal. living and dead… last night i sat on my sofa, eyes closed, imagining lost worlds, muggy urban afternoons passing by at warp speed and the sound of humanity suffering. nothing sounds good right after you listen to this album. it may not always be an album i return to year after year, but for now, it’s the most provocaive, emotional music i’ve ever heard.
Burial is my mission in life.
