A Place To Bury Strangers "Pinned (Deluxe Edition)" 2xLP
Noise rockers A Place to Bury Strangers return with another reliably heavy, hard-driving new outing, Pinned. The Jesus and Mary Chain/My Bloody Valentine acolytes who once referred to themselves as the “loudest band in New York” have honed their skills over the years, pushing sonic boundaries, tightening their songwriting, and generally upping their game with each new recording. In turn, Pinned expands on their singular sound while adding in a welcome new element: Nico-esque female vocals. Listening to the album is a crushing experience punctuated by moments of beauty and clarity. It might be APTBS’s best effort yet.
