Excellent New Yorkers continue The Quietus Mix Series

And so for their addition for the Quietus Mix Series, A Place To Bury Strangers have prepared a mix of Scandinavian folk artists in knitwear playing ukeleles and singing about the time their kitten woke them up with its ikkle wikkle wet nose... Of course they bloody haven't: the New York purveyors of brutally intense rock & roll put together an hour of proper motorcycling muck. Celebrating their new single 'So Far Away' (watch the video here), their first for the Dead Oceans label, A Place To Bury Strangers continue to sonically outdo any other group who take up the gauntlet put down by The Jesus & Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine et al simply by the intense physicality of their music. Listen and wait for your ears to weep.
