Love You More Than Anyone

Burial “Rival Dealer”

“Rival Dealer” isn’t a long song so much as it’s an album’s worth of sounds and ideas compressed into nearly 11 minutes. There’s a through line here, mainly in the form of a recurring breakbeat paired with wonderfully ugly distortions, but the track mostly just keeps moving forward, as though you’re walking through a physical space. You pick up on moments of romance and peace, but for the most part it all seems ugly, sordid, and violent. I like to imagine that whenever the beat picks up, that’s when you’re running because you just want to get to the other side of it faster.

Buy it from Amazon.
