- A Place To Bury Strangers by A Place To Bury Strangers
Someone wants A Place To Bury Strangers to be massive. What with them and Crystal Stilts doing the whole Mary Chain thing (possibly Glasvegas etc doing it on a big populist level) I'm wondering if this is gonna be a new scene. What is it gonna be called? Or does it already have a name and I've no idea cos I'm sat here in my own little world thinking of kittens and fish. Well writing a review of one of their records and not mentioning the Mary Chain is a bloody hard job and you can see I'm not the man for the job. 'I Know I'll See You' is on luminous orange and is on the Rocket Girl label who are also bringing the Killer Pimp release to the UK shortly.... Anyway this whiffs a bit of early New Order/ late Joy Division as well. It sounds old anyway and I kind of like it.
the most exciting release this year - and the reason why enterprises like Norman Records need to be cherished for supporting the likes of this. Knowing nothing about this until i saw it as the recommended record of the month (ages ago) - this just grabs you by the lapels, brings you close to its face and then shakes you around but in a way that makes you feel powerful. They describe themselves as sonic annihilation - and that is not a bad description. It is a wall of sound - but controlled sound with a vibe and a direction. Like jesus and mary chain crossed with my bloody valentine and new order. i can give it no higher praise than the name check of those 3 bands!
basically if you want a mix of my bloody valentine, jesus and mary chain and new order then this is for you. from the opening chords and just pure sound (they describe themselves as total sonic annihilation).if you were lucky enough to see them at the ICA in London in December you know that these boys fill a room with sound and pure presence.like being played 3 different records at the same time - one in each ear and one infront you, it just works ok? pure sound pleasure.having said that - if you hear I Know I'll See You Again and don't like it, you won't like anything else. quite frankly, IMHO, the most exciting new old sound of the 2008!
