"Comfort," one of the more recent songs by New Jersey rockers Planning for Burial, appears to offer anything but; sluggish drums, a white-noise guitar squall and growling-from-the-great-beyond vocals come together to create a wholly unsettling landscape.

On Facebook, the band notes it has something of a dual personality, writing, “The loud version [of the band] is a droning…wall-of-sound while the quiet version is soft and pretty.” Judging by the tracks I sampled, this mellower side surfaces about as often as the March sun in Ohio. In other words: pack earplugs.

Nyodene D and Cosmic Moon open the show.
