I love it when a band is picturesque in its meaning or agenda. That is until some guy starts screaming bloody murder in the mic. The chordal intro to some of this Wilkes Barre one-man-outfit, Planning for Burial, are ugly and mean, and they seek to be tamed not played. With the vocal abuse serving as whisperer, it comes off cool. Check out Planning for Burial's droney, noisey, cold "Below the House," which came out in March.
Planning for Burial plays with Stress, Druse, Coming Down, and Modern Psychics on Friday, December 15, at Vineyard Community Space, 836 South Clinton Avenue. 6:30 p.m. $10. facebook.com/vineyardcommunityspace; planningforburial.bandcamp.com.
