Burial - Untrue (Hyperdub, 2007/2016) 2xLP
Day 21 of @modernwax's #augustvinylchallenge is 'game-changer album'. This remains one of the most groundbreaking electronic albums of the 21st century so far. Snatched snippets of R&B tracks, vocals recorded down the phone, two-step garage rhythms, beatless ambient soundscapes and the strangely comforting crackle and pop of static throughout - all combine to create an unsettling yet uplifting soundtrack to walking around a decaying, abandoned South London housing estate on a dark, rainy night. 'Untrue' showed that you didn't need expensive, state-of-the-art equipment to make beautiful, innovative music. Truly a game-changing album.
