A Place To Bury Strangers: July 16, 2017 Out In The Street Festival

It was ten years ago when A Place To Bury Strangers broke. It was during that small window of time when blogs were tastemakers and willy-nilly determined random band flavors of the month. Except when it came to APTBS, their talent and depth were hard to get wrong. This was a band whose intensity was clear and whose ability to project a wall of sound was magnified by Oliver Ackermann’s world class pedal business. The Death By Audio pedal company pre-dated and survived the venue of the same name and the electroncic wizardry and meticulous and inventive craft propelled noise makers of all shapes and sizes, but none more directly than APTBS.

The second day of the annual Out In The Streets Fest was headlined by APTBS and the band came prepared. Before doors even opened for the day, Oliver spent several minutes playing with gadgets in the middle of the floor and he and bassist Dion Lunadon did some neat improv. Hours later in the pitch dark APTBS began their sonic assault and did not let up for the better part of an hour. The band last released an album in 2015 (Transfixiation on Dead Oceans) and several of those songs were featured in the set. But there also seemed to be a handful of newer songs that may feature on an upcoming release. At least it seems that APTBS is gearing up for recording and working out the material on the road — their packed tour schedule cuts through most of Europe through September, October and part of November (dates here). This band still very much has the intensity that first brought them into prominence and this set was our confirmation of that fact. We’ll be back when they return to the US.

I recorded this set with the Neumann large diaphragm cardioids mounted in the center of the floor in front of the soundboard and mixed with an excellent feed from the board. This set was intensely loud and the band was plentiful in its use of effects, so there are some moments where the mix is rough, but overall this is an excellent representation of a tremendous set. Enjoy!
