Burial, Four Tet, and Thom Yorke stole the headlines last week when an unexpected and unlabeled double-sided release found its way to a handful of London’s record stores. Today, however, the release has made its way to digital and streaming services across the web.
Titled Her Revolution / His Rope, the new material builds on the dim and melodic ethos of trio’s first joint release almost a decade ago, but supplements some of the previous dancefloor energy with soft piano tones and expansive ambience. At a first glance, the new efforts seem to be carried by Yorke’s signature ethereal vocals and Burial’s artifact-ridden grit, but an informed ear will quickly unveil the intricacies that make this release worth exploring time and time again.
Although the first pressing of Her Revolution / His Rope sold out in minutes, Four Tet has put on the record that there are more copies of the 12″ on the way. Those who simply want to hear the release can listen in to the tracks below.
