I had the privilege to see Four Tet live in Amsterdam around 2018. I must have missed this album, because it was missing in the other 8 albums I already have. And what a find. Sometimes Four Tet needs some time to appreciate, but this album is very open and friendly. PlayItLoud!
perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
