Adam Devonshire and Jon Beavis’ deep, murky, whomping rhythm section and Joe Talbot’s barked, slurred singing combine to produce a direct, clunky, industrial cadence that doesn’t rock so much as stomp. Last year’s Joy As an Act of Resistance collects ostensibly disapproving portraits of gross men and the societal conditions that produce them, although the energy with which they roar suggests a certain relish. With A Place to Bury Strangers.
