Burial - No, It's Not Emo Music

Having never seen a cooler album cover, Burial immediately intrigued me. The album is called Untrue. I have rarely found a record with such a cohesive and enthralling vibe as this. The album art actually conveys the atmosphere of Burial's music better than most words. It's dark, introspective electronic music, to use broad terms. In many ways, the songs are industrial and cold, yet what gets me is how captivating the entire atmosphere is. The mood is a mixture of oxymorons: robotic yet human, cold yet appealing, there is something deeply haunting that has got me hooked. I hope you enjoy.
