A Place to Bury Strangers is a noise-rock group from Brooklyn, New York. Formed in 2003, they’ve made appearances with notable bands such as Brian Jonestown Massacre, Holy Fuck, MGMT, and Nine Inch Nails. Shortened as APTBS, the trio have been labeled as the “loudest band in New York,” and no doubt that their live performances are even louder. After gaining much acclaim from music publications for their 2007 self-titled debut, the band went on to play with The Jesus and Mary Chain, a big deal that they proudly cite as an influence. Being the “loudest” doesn’t necessarilly mean being messiest. APTBS are loud and rowdy, but their shows are nothing but rehearsed magic: rambunctious noises that melt together to a perfect mold of sounds.
Likewise on the line-up, Fort Worth’s Burning Hotels is another band with past influences. Having released Novels in 2010, the 2011 self-titled release steered away from the post-punk and acknowledged other influences such as New Order and Ultravox. Critics note that “Burning Hotels is a triumph for the Fort Worth Quartet,” having obvious draws to particular ‘80s bands, yet the four know how to incorporate their own elements to make these sounds their own. Who doesn’t love the ‘80s?
