9. A Place to Bury Strangers – “Straight”

aptbs_transLP

The pummeling guitars and spurts of piercing feedback on “Straight”, the lead single from Brooklyn’s A Place to Bury Strangers’ fourth studio album, Transfixation (out February 17th via Dead Oceans), catapult the song into a hypnotic groove while singer Oliver Ackermann lends some psychedelic vocals to bring it all together. With new drummer Robi Gonzales and the band’s brand of noisy, effects-laden rock still intact, look for their new LP to be a return to form. –Josh Terry
