Last year, elusive U.K. spirit-channeler Burial released a collaborative EP with The Bug as Flame 1. Now, they return with a follow-up under the name\u00a0Flame 2. Like\u00a0Fog \/ Shrine, the new\u00a0Dive \/ Rain\u00a0EP\u00a0is just two tracks long.\u00a0"Dive" begins\u00a0as a typically ambient, rainy tableau before lapsing\u00a0into biting drones and stuttering percussion. "Rain" is similarly menacing, though the reggaeton- and dub-inflected beat is more palpable, and the sonics more grindingly intense. It's a change of pace for the production duo, but a welcome one.\u00a0Dive \/ Rain is out now, with physical editions available\u00a0via\u00a0The Bug's Pressure label. Earlier this year, Burial released\u00a0the excellent Claustro\u00a0\/ State Forest\u00a0as a 12" on Hyperdub. Though he hasn't released an album since 2007's millenium-defining\u00a0Untrue, he's been putting out a steady stream of short EPs and singles over the past 13 years. Recent offerings include\u00a0\u201cRodent,\u201d \u201cSubtemple \/ Beachfires,\u201d and \u201cYoung Death \/ Nightmarket." Burial's 2013 project\u00a0Come Down To Us stands as one of the decade's very best collections of electronic music.\u00a0As for The Bug (Kevin Martin), he teamed up with vocalist\u00a0Roger Robinson for another stellar release as King Midas Sound this past February.
