[with a hint of |Burial - Street Halo]

I don't know how Burial manages it, but this song takes the feeling of walking alone down dirty, badly lit, rain-damp London streets at night and turns it into music.

I think it should meet China Miéville's writing and be best friends with it.

Mmm, yes. Usually I end up deleting all but my favourite songs after I've listened to something a few times. I still have the entire first Burial album on my phone.

Love it. I have to get back to a real city.

It does give you that yearning-to-be-lost-and-anonymous-in-a-crowd feeling, doesn't it.

Absolutely.. and that is my favorite feeling in the entire world, for reasons unknown!
