A Place To Bury Strangers – Exploding Head

December 30, 2009

There are many bands today that get compared to My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus and Mary Chain, yet few actually have the sound that could have a similar impact today like those bands had in their day. A noise that is not an occasional motive, but constantly present and striking, layered above a foundation of good songs and power chords. Well, A Place To Bury Strangers have that. Exploding Head is an album that is beautiful. And heavy – it takes me an effort to listen to it from start to finish. I wouldn’t expect it after years of listening to all kinds of stuff: my ears hurt a bit. But man, it is good. Sometimes it’s even danceable, sometimes it’s new wave going evil. But mostly it is interstellar overdrive.
