It's like there's someone still holding a lighter in a warehouse somewhere. He snaps out of his reverie with a laugh. I don't always like this idea that club music should be this new disposable thing. That's wrong. Burial's second album, Untrue, is punctuated by the skippy drums and "girl-next-door" vocals of two-step garage and early jungle.
Elsewhere, the sounds that make up his night-time sketches are lo-fi - he has only worked in a proper studio a few times in his life, a fact he is mildly embarrassed about. He confesses that his favourite sounds are sampled from "Vin Diesel's car keys in a film, bullet casings hitting concrete in Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation". Another is the sound of his brother's lighter sparking. Burial's music succeeds because of this warmth, this closeness to real life, which marks it out from the super-produced efforts of certain goliaths of dance music, all clean lines and smooth edges.
But while it is still distinctly DIY, some of the melancholy of Burial's debut has dissipated on this new album, which is more heavily loaded with garage-inflected vocals, and more upbeat as a consequence.
So what is the mood of Untrue? What was Burial doing while he thought about how it should be made? He sums it up: "I would sit around waiting for night to fall, wait for summer to end. Or I would go out, wait for it to get dark, and then I'd go back and work on it, sort of hypnotise myself.

Garbage Burial I live my life amongst the garbage revel and thrive in it I walk the sewers and under bridges finding perfectly good eggs and denim I've owned sweatshops, I've been hunted and I've fed men to men I've made a fortune using others I'm the epitome of a success and when I die throw me in the trash I find the garbage rather soothing I use it to plug my wounds banging hoors and going berserk in dumpsters is what I love to do When I wrestle I'm the Trashman I throw around then eat the garbage A dead body is like a piece of trash so when I die just throw me in it When I die throw me in the trash that's what a dead body is shove as much shit as you want in it Throw the garbage eat the garbage be the garbage that's what I am I live my life amongst the garbage revel and thrive in it Lurking sewers, banging hoors, plugging cuts and sleeping in the trash the sweet sweet trash I lived amongst the garbage so when I'd dead just throw me in the trash.
Urge to Stab When I'm holding a knife I get the uncontrollable urge to stab An angry bitter misanthrope repulsed by human contact A simple tool used for food becomes a violent instrument of death When you handle a baseball bat you just want to swing it or when you pick up a ball you have the urge to throw it When I hold a knife I just want nothing more than to stab every single human being in existence.
