Stream Burial’s Intoxicating ‘Rival Dealer’ EP

Burial, 'Rival Dealer,' EP, stream, Hyperdub

SPIN’s 50 Best Albums of 2013, 50 Best Songs of 2013, and, yes, 20 Best Dance Albums of 2013 are all in already, but year-end closure has never stopped Burial before. Now the reclusive London producer has released a new EP a few days ahead of its scheduled December 16 release date — buy it from Hyperdub or stream all three tracks below. Titled Rival Dealer, the 28-minute set consists of the jungle-storming title track, spectral R&B “Hiders,” and grandly lurching “Come Down to Us”; on early listens, all are spacious and entrancing. Available digitally for now, the EP is set to arrive on 180-gram 12-inch vinyl and jewel-case CD, plus as a digital download. Rival Dealers follows last year’s “Truant”/”Rough Sleeper” single and three-track Kindred EP.
