A Place to Bury Strangers is the notoriously loud and noisy band of NYC’s Oliver Ackerman (also of the Brooklyn-based effects pedals company and defunct DIY venue Death By Audio). The band cranks a mix of shoegaze, post-punk, noise rock, and more into a pummeling, industrial-strength wall of sound that envelops the listener every bit as much as it abrades the paint off the walls.
With this playlist, the band unearth fellow travelers of experimental electronics, noise, and rock, from L.A.’s Sextile and Brooklyn neighbors Parquet Courts to Warp Records novelty Silicon Teens and Japan’s shapeshifting composer Haruomi Hosono.
A Place to Bury Strangers says: “This is the music to dye your hair & burn strangers into your arm to. It’s your life so do it to it. An Interwoven pattern of melody with hypnotic intensity. I listen & feel my musicanship perk up, emotionally heightened, senses renewed. “Embrace the Illusion” -Jodorovsky. “Goop, soup, mute, flute.”
