"In McDonalds" by Burial
I heard Untrue when it came out in 2007 and that was almost all I played for a while. I had the music service Rhapsody at the time and I'd download DRM'd tracks to my little Sony Digital Walkman. That's how we did things back then.
As you know, I love sound collages. This is so haunting, and that Aailyah sample just makes it. It's timeless. The whole thing is built on samples, isn't it? I remember reading interviews and the guy just used Sound Forge to cut things up and process them. That's what I use! When rap and hip-hop got away from samples due to all the court rulings, it was a bummer. In my opinion, it ruined the art of it. Somehow this slipped through.
