Boomkat Product Review:
*NOW REISSUED ON ROCKET GIRL WITH FIVE BONUS TRACKS* Here comes another new band baring the influence of the UK's '80s indie rock scene, but these guys really know what they're doing. While someone like Editors (or the droves of far more fashionable, yet equally lazy Pitchfork baiting buffoons) have a go at Joy Division's austere tension, it sounds affected and more than a little bit naff, but New York's A Place To Bury Strangers do the smart thing and take the spirit of Martin Hannett's production ingenuity and apply it to their own wall of noise sound. While they also give nods to early material by The Cure and My Bloody Valentine, it's more to do with the atmosphere of those recordings rather than just aping their style. Singer and guitarist Oliver Ackermann builds boutique guitar pedals for a living and it certainly pays dividends on this album: each track is coated in a bath of distortion and thick, swirling texture, but it's all engineered in such a fashion as to retain the utmost clarity, wit the individual elements never sinking into a over-production quagmire. The songs themselves are finely fashioned too, with plenty of muscular hooks and killer basslines to be found across this newly expanded fifteen-track span. Highly recommended.
