    Excerpts from the release now available at Experimedia.net. It's amazing to me when an artist like Burial can continue to release material that doesn't veer far from the tropes for which he's become well known (and oft-imitated) and have the results be so consistently astounding. Despite his estimable discography, one could make a case for "Kindred" being the best Burial outing to date. The title track is expansive and beautiful, full of the lush, muted pads and alien vocal samples for which the UK producer is well known. Though much of the album feels quite familiar, archetypally "Burial-esque" as it were, there are some "new" moments worth making note of, for instance the straightforward house rhythms on "Loner" and the wonderfully abstracted denouement of "Ashtray Wasp," the latter of which contains what is, for my money, perhaps Burial's most devastating vocal sample yet. In the end, "Kindred" is another superbly crafted, essential release from one of the most distinctive voices of our time. Highly recommended. - Alex Cobb (of Students of Decay) for Experimedia

    3 new tracks, over 30 minutes of music, 180 gram pressing. "It's hard to talk about Kindred-- whether in the context of electronic dance music or just in the Burial discography itself-- without resorting to superlative terms, because it really is just that impressive. It's easy enough to take a talent such as Burial for granted, but Kindred is like a convenient slap in the face, a wakeup call. Never before has his music possessed this much majesty, this much command, this much power: The pathos here has moved from sympathetic to completely domineering."
