A Place to Bury Strangers - Exploding Head (V0)

Exploding Head is the sophomore release by New York noise rock band A Place to Bury Strangers. Their music is an almost lyrical combination of space rock, shoegaze, post-punk and My Bloody Valentine's Isn't Anything-era noise rock. Exploding Head presents a refinement of A Place to Bury Strangers' debut release, with the occasional delve into post-punk guitar tones and even surf rock. The phrasing and chord changes seem timed almost perfectly to match that exact "diving in" moment in each song, which can only be compared to jumping off of a skyscraper or suddenly finding oneself in a boiler room. If you can get past the Jesus and Mary Chain-esque screeching guitars, this album is a perfect amalgamation of all of the shoegaze and noise rock efforts of the last three decades.
