Know all that lack of knowledge is on me only, and not at all an insult to any of the listeners of that music. However, I do like to think in the three years I have been doing this blog, I have learn to find quality music. And that's what "Nova" is. Its gorgeous, stunning, and trance inducing, but in a good way. It's striking how simple the song is, building up a little bit before just propelling itself over a twitchy beat and ghostly and glitchy piano lines. It's subtle in great ways, with drops that disappear before they begin, and the a beautiful ambient synth that sinks in near the end. I know this isn't the first time Burial and Four Tet have collaborated, but this the first time I've really payed attention and I am so grateful I did. "Nova" truly is stunning.
