DJ Comment: Burial sort of just randomly drops tracks and the whole world stops to listen. That definitely happened when the Kindred EP dropped in February as well as when the Truant single dropped late this December.

DJ Comment: Daughn Gibson came a little bit out of left field early this year with his solo LP debut All Hell. Gibson says that 'Ray is about a terrible son whose mother has died. He comes home drunk and his dad is like, "Come on, man, can you please get it together?" I would say that every other household on my block probably has a situation close to that.'
