A Place To Bury Strangers - Exploding Head LP

Had my first go at the "Exploding Head" LP by A Place To Bury Strangers yesterday, and what a pleasant trip it was! What we get here from "The Loudest Band of NY" is a brandnew record of delicious 'total sonic annihilation' like they tend to call it. After a first spin, I'd say that this new album is a bit closer to their live-performances, meaning that the new tracks have a bit more structure and melody compared to their debut. Still, My Bloody Valentine worshipping is still high with these fellows, but one can also hear strong influences of The Cure or Joy Division on "Exploding Head", making their sophomore effort a must-have record for not only the shoegaze lovers, but for anyone into exploring the depths of pop-noise (does that term make sense at all?). The artwork is as tight as a duck's arse as well, so this is one seriously highly recommended album!

If you haven't done so yet, order your copy from Amazon because it's dirtcheap there!
