A Place to Bury Strangers

Feel the Noise

Nov 28, 2012

After watching Flashdance, there can be a lingering desire to live in a warehouse. Jennifer Beals’ character brings a cache to making a storage space that is meant for inanimate objects your home. This desire is rekindled every time that movie airs on television, and A Place to Bury Strangers’ Oliver Ackermann is not immune to it. More

A Place to Bury Strangers' noisy fuzz is its trademark. On the trio's fourth album, Transfixiation, this working noise-rock formula is not much changed.

Worship

Worship

Dead Oceans

Jul 03, 2012
