12.5 Days 'til Coachella - A Place To Bury Strangers

Holy fuck.

These guys are something out of a dream. Take the sonic characteristics of Jesus & Mary Chain add it to the Joy Division-esque basslines multiply it by the Bauhaus-inspired downward pickings of the guitar hooks put it to the power of the trademark shoegaze technique of hiding the lyrics underneath the din of the music, and you've got the motherfucking Di Vinci code of how to throw the aural soul into a blender.

They're from New York, which now that I know that, makes me think of such other amazing, somewhat similar artists as Bowery Electric. But APTBS is pitched up like Spacemen 3 shooting a speedball, with way more depth.

Friday's looking better all the time, y'all.

Special thanks to my pal Tina for pointing me in their direction.
