A Band You'll Feel Weird About Googling

You know that feeling when you hear a really good song from an unknown band for the first time? You know, it's great that you found a good song, but at the same time, you're a little worried that whatever album it comes from can't possibly live up to that one song? Most of the time, the album doesn't meet your expectations, and you go on searching for new music, just a little more cynically than you did before. But every now and then, the album turns out to be great, or *gasp*, even better than you had hoped. That happens to be the case with A Place To Bury Strangers self-titled debut. Seriously, these guys are great: think pristine guitars over insane levels of feedback, in some sort of shoegaze-meets-noise-rock fantasy. I'm gonna to go ahead and label APTBS my new favorite band. Check this band out, now.
