Currently comprised of Oliver Ackermann (guitars and vocals), Dion Lunadon (bass) and Robi Gonzalez), the Brooklyn-based trio of A Place to Bury Strangers have developed a reputation for a moody, atmospheric wall of sound-influenced sound that possesses elements of psych rock, shoegaze and space rock and for arguably one of the most punishingly loud and chaotic live shows in contemporary music. Now, if you stopped by JOVM earlier, you would have come across some photos of APTBS’ set at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, which featured Bambara, Pill and Sleepies – and if that hadn’t given you a sense of what their live set is, check out this live footage of the trio in concert in St. Petersburg, Russia back in 2013. (Sonically, their sound draws from The Jesus and Mary Chain among others – and you can hear it.
The roughly half-hour footage is a fair mix of material from the band’s then three full-length albums and it includes two “Deadbeat” and “Ego Death” off their incredible second album, Exploding Head. Play this one as loud as possible and mosh out.
