Singles Club: A Place To Bury Strangers

Today, friends, my mind has been blow. So very spectacularly blown. Once, and then again and again and again. If you're wondering why, it's quite simple really. Today I heard, for the first time (and a few times after that), the latest offering by heavyweight Fuzzy favorites A Place To Bury Strangers.

The band is prepping for their impending explosion of an EP (Onwards To The Wall, on the fantastic Dead Oceans), and have unleashed the song "So Far Away" to whet the appetite. Oh holy hell, y'all. In true APTBS style, the song is abrasive, fuzzy, and loud. But the band has added some interesting nuances, in the form of a slight 60s jangle and some spare, echoing riffage very much in the vein of early 80s New Order. Combined with all that violent, darkly sexy, pulsating noise, the song has predictably warmed the cockles of my cold black heart a few degrees.

If this is the sound of what's to come, February better come quick because I need to get my hands on that there EP.
