a place to bury strangers Pinned (CD, £10.50)label: Dead Oceans
A Place To Bury Strangers, well known for their unwavering commitment to unpredictable, often bewildering live shows and, some might say, dangerous volume, release their 5th album, via Dead Oceans. This record finds them converting difficult moments into some of their most urgent work to date. Itís their first since the 2016 election and the 2014 closing of Death By Audio, the beloved Brooklyn DIY space where frontman Oliver Ackerman lived, worked and created with complete freedom. Itís a clear and honest statement of intent, not just for everything that follows but for this band as a whole. As well as this, the band open up a whole new dimension to their sound - new member Lia Simone Braswell has not only cemented her position as an unwavering force as drummer, she also contributes vocals on multiple tracks on ĎPinnedí.
