The Brian Jonestown Massacre - 'Aufheben' Brian Jonestown Massacre Tickets

Their best album since 2003's ‘…And This Is Our Music’

The Brian Jonestown Massacre - 'Aufheben'

Album Info

  • Release Date: May 7, 2012
  • Label: A Records
  • Fact: Anton Newcombe told NME: "I feel like I am on the crossroads of creating an epic soundtrack for film, so in a word, ['Aufheben' sounds] cinematic."
8 / 10 Nearly 10 years since the infamous documentary DIG!, The Brian Jonestown Massacre continue to plough their whimsical psychedelic furrow. Mainman Anton Newcombe is now sober, and here has made his best album since 2003’s ‘…And This Is Our Music’. Cohorts include Will Carruthers (ex-Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized) and returning member Matt Hollywood (last seen storming offstage in DIG!), who sings one of the highlights, the fantastically titled ‘I Want To Hold Your Other Hand’. The album title is more appropriate, though, German for contradictory meanings: either ‘abolish’ or ‘preserve’. On this evidence, it’s the latter.
