9. Burial – Untrue

I hear this record like a distant cousin of Unknown Pleasures. Sure, it’s an electronic album but it’s got miasmic beauty that seeps from every second of it.

The vocal science on the vocals gives it a haunted, disembodied feel and sounds are like weather, synths woosh, static crackles and bass blasts by in warm gusts. This album got me through a time in my life when i was very ill and full of a lot of self doubt and sadness. Getting lost in it on a daily basis got me through.

Every note and sound on this piece of work gives me shivers.
