A Place To Bury Strangers - Worship
Released: 11/06/2012 Dead OceansA third record from the New York-based noise merchants (now a duo), whose visceral self-titled debut and infamously loud live shows first garnered attention and prompted comparisons with The Jesus and Mary Chain in 2007.

MusicOMH“Ackermann’s vocals are gloriously detached and unnerving...” Long term fans might find Worship not as visceral as previous outings, whilst those intrigued by occasional flashes of melody might find themselves beaten into submission by the album's oppressive nature...
The Line of Best Fit“Worship? Not quite, but it’s pretty easy to adore it...” The propulsive beat that kicks off the album is vaguely reminiscent of Big Black, which might give you a few ideas about where this New York trio fit into the post-punk lineage...
Drowned In Sound“We know better than to expect positivity from these guys...” A Place to Bury Strangers are the band that taught me to find the music in a pneumatic drill, and in the heavy squeals of a chest of drawers being moved across a marble floor, and, with some effort, even in white noise...
