A Place To Bury Strangers - Exploding Head
Psyched out shoegaze worship with a healthy appreciation for volume and attack. The last time we posted this band, the reference points were: The Jesus And Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Primal Scream, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Well, guess what. The references haven't changed on this record either. You could maybe through in The Black Angels as a more contemporary comparison if you like. Or don't. Whatever, no skin off my back.
You can also file this under: Music that my girlfriend/wife/gay lover would probably enjoy (that's assuming that your girlfriend/wife/gay lover ever went through even a mild goth-ish phase. And let's face it...she/he did. At least, if she/he is worth her/his salt she/he had a fucking goth phase. [please note that for women/men over the age of 35, Cure, Depeche Mode, New Order, and hell, even Smiths, count towards this credit, as liking those bands "back then" still lends a certain level of hotness/handsomeness...I don't make the rules, I just enforce them] ).
