It’s that time of year where there are very few new albums being released. Those that are coming out tend to be obviously focused on the upcoming holiday season. It’s also the time of year where artists are slowly releasing tracks for their upcoming albums due out early in the new year. On February 17th, Brooklyn’s A Place to Bury Strangers will release their fourth record, Transfixiation, on awesome indie label Dead Oceans. The first single is aptly titled, “Straight”, which is a straightforward, reverb-infused rock track that echos of Wooden Shjips and Grinderman.

The album is being promoted as an evolution of sorts for the trio – which consists of Oliver Ackermann (lead vocals, guitar), Dion Lunadon (bass), and Robi Gonzalez (drums) – as they have focused on producing a rawer, grittier album instead of nuancing with the micro details and away from the dreaminess that characterized their previous albums. “Straight” definitely has the sound of a band that is just letting loose, and we can’t wait to hear the entire album in a couple of months.

“Straight” is below. Transfixiation can be preordered at SCD, iTunes, and Amazon. Also check your local indie Record Store about pre-ordering the album. A Place to Bury Strangers will also be going on an extensive tour across the US and Europe in the new year. Tour dates are below as well.
