2016 repress. Sticking to just a handful of core sounds—sandpapery, strobing pads and reverb-y drums chief among them—he burrows deep instead of spreading wide. The title track absolutely kills: with huge synths banging out confused chords over a sharp rhythmic stutter, Burns blasts us into glorious submission. "African Love Story" is more subtly catchy, driven by ticklish, bitcrushed guitars that seem to have wiggled into the mix from a YouTube video. On the flip, "Duh Duh Dunk" completely makes over many of these same sounds with the addition of a few misty-eyed piano notes.
