"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.
