A Place To Bury Strangers * Worship (cd 2012)

When I was just a little Roy, I found a tape in my father’s collection with the “Psychocandy” debut album (1985) of The Jesus And Mary Chain. I liked the strange and noisy sound, but my musical tastes drifted elsewhere and I never really followed the band. Recently I am listening more to popmusic using Last.fm and since recently Deezer. I have listened to “shoegaze” a bit, but not that much. Then Last.fm recommended a new release of A Place To Bury Strangers. With a bandname as great as that I decided to find out what it is and APTBS proves to be the ultimate shoegaze band. “Worship” is a magnificent album! In case you are wondering, try to imagine the old style of wave with the screaming guitars, ‘flat vocals’ and drumcomputers or drumcomputer like drumming, then add a little distortion and here and there a bit of tempo and you are pretty close to the sound of shoegaze. APTBS seems to have taken things a step further and their sound is sometimes downright noisy and dirty and especially the uptempo tracks are brilliant. I am now working my way backwords in their large discography and so far it seems that this is going to be one of my favourite popbands.
