Very abrasive & listenable which makes for a unique album.
Jerry M. Mcvean
I'm not going to try to compare them to anyone else but if you are fans of the previously mentioned bands there is a good chance you will like them.

Well-written tunes that are, at the same time, a perfect mix of noisy brutality and atmospheric catchiness.

To all the babies who pine for the Jesus & Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine to reunite, I have one thing to say: move on. How can you whine when terrific artists such as Autolux, Liars and Voyager One exist? Now A Place to Bury Strangers, one of the purer, more nostalgic shoegaze outfits, competently picks up the discarded fuzzy, spaced-out, heavy pieces shattered by your heroes. The band cover its already gritty tinny-to-shrieking guitars, picked bass, post-punk-rhythm-spewing drum machines and reverb-soaked vocals with even more grit, volume (!) and otherwise raw production. The harmonies and solos are frugal yet meaningful, and the lyrics mysterious and hard to hear: in other words, it's the ultimate homage to the aforementioned legends. Unoriginality is rarely a pleasant compliment, but only because it never sounded this perfect!

This band has everything. Well-written tunes that are, at the same time, a perfect mix of noisy brutality and atmospheric catchiness.

As other reviewers, blogs, and hype-sters have penned: this band is a perfectly assembled mix of The Jesus & Mary Chain and New Order. Of course, there are other influences at work: My Bloody Valentine (and other shoegaze bands) and Nine Inch Nails (and other industrial bands).

It is great that this band has been opening for the aforementioned industrial band: they are a great mix of many styles that are not for weak, Juno/Garden State-ears. Despite the facts that the folks at Pitchfork hype them up, they are not the Shins or the Hold Steady (bands that I enjoy in their own light). This is loud, abrasive, and negative music.

That said, if you like JAMC, the shoegaze bands, or other various industrial type bands, you will love them. Great song-writing, melodies, and lyrics will hook you immediately like a largemouth bass. Sweet.

"I'll just wait until you turn around / kick your face in!" That lyric from this band's visceral track "To Fix the Gash in Your Head" pretty much sums up the sonic intentions of A Place To Bury Strangers. On their debut LP, they deliver ten sharp kicks to the cranium in static-laden doses of ear-shattering distortion, pulsing drum machine beats, and reverb-saturated baritone vocals. While they are certainly indebted to the shoegazers of yore (My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Catherine Wheel), their treble-soaked clatter and ominous, sometimes downright malevolent lyrics are equally informed by the goth-dance of New Order and Joy Division and the mechanized doom of late '80s industrial. Still, I've never heard an indie rock band indulge in the shrill high-end extremes of guitar hiss quite as liberally as these guys. Upon the first listen, it almost seems too much, as if they forgot to smooth out those nasty squealing overtones before they released this thing. But it doesn't take long to realize that these brittle, unnerving sonic qualities are the defining characteristics that give these songs their power and beauty. But hey - let's not over-analyze it any further. Let's just crank it up and forget our ear plugs!

Great post-punk sound from a modern band. Very reminiscent of Jesus & Mary Chain, Flesh For Lulu, and especially Joy Division. Some songs even sound more like New Order just after Ian Curtis' death, where their sound was still very dark, but starting to get a bit more electronic and up tempo. Even though very gothic-like, PTBS keeps their sound up to date both lyrically and musically. Good listen from start to finish - great purchase for fans of the sound of the more obscure side of early 80's alternative rock.

great album. to be played loud and not for ambient cuddle time on the couch with loved ones or pets.
some say shoegazing but it's more post-punk in my ear....although i'm a huge shoe-gaze fan, but the tracks move a bit too quickly for shoe-gazing.
similar to Novelty, touches of hard-core (helmet or stanford prison experiment - if you listen hard enough).
i haven't seen them live, but i'd probably need earplugs and a flak jacket from what folks say.....
i'd want to protect my spleen from rupturing from the volume....

in late '07, i was binging on anarcho punk and neo-folk and listening to my brainwashed video casts. the video for "i know i'll see you" pops up, and it becomes one of those moments where i just stop in my tracks and ask "what is this?" because what i'm hearing is /incredible/. i'm been accused of having 'narrow taste' when it comes to music and i completely agree; i'm extremely picky about what i listen to, so to be captivated by a band with a sound that is quite different from what i ordinarily listen to is a rare exception. i'll say outright i'm not a big fan of shoegaze- i think most of its boring with the exception of the noisy guitars; aptbs is more than just shoegaze. yes, they mutter their lyrics and the guitars are noisy, but they're noisier (if you could imagine) than any shoegaze i've encountered and their riffs are distinct and interesting rather than mindless, the drum machine is a neat touch that pulls the band into the 21st century and lets not forget the basslines which has this huge 80's feel (well the whole band is pretty reminiscent of the 80's)- a touch of surf rock and punk is also detected, but in whole aptbs is their own entity.
since, a place to bury strangers has become one of my favorite bands and this album is recommended to just about anyone who listens to a substantial amount of 80's music, or just anyone who likes good music. the s/t is a good testament to what they offer live (with the exception of the strobelights which cannot currently be captured on the cd) and has me eager for their next release. :) buy this album, see them live- what do you have to lose?
