The Bug and Burial return as Flame 2, on The Bug's Pressure imprint. Skulking in the low-key mode of last year’s Fog / Shrine debut, the dark souls return with a hoods-up bout of South London urban gothic paranoia vampiring on iciest drill and shuddering with the sound of cargo trains cutting through semi-resi/industrial sprawl at night. Dive is their desiccated echo of the dominant UK drill sound, isolating its tinny trills and and replacing them in a style of dread cinema for the ear, framed by furnace blast bass distortion, howling winds and sparing percussion that cuts thru the soundstage like Mark Ernestus mixes of Ndagga Rhythm Force. Rain on the other hand brings worm-charming subs to the fore inna reggaeton/dancehall style, massaging the earth with pounding subs under the nearby clack of train tracks carrying slow, heavy loads while it pisses down from above.
