With a title like Your Children Placate You from Premature Graves, there's no denying that Edward Ka-Spel and Co. are shaking hands with the existential baggage that comes with parenthood. LPD's records have long melded dark psychedelia with brittle folk and industrial atmospheres that balance manic psychosis. Premature Graves brings that subtly deranged fingerprint to a point.
"Stigmata, Pt. 4" swells with dreamlike bliss while "Please Don't Get Me Wrong" rattles with exotic mechanical rhythms. The Spanish jangle in "Feathers at Dawn" is a catchy hook that signifies the return of guitarist Martijn de Kleer.
The average song surpasses the five-minute mark, incorporating psych-rock splendor with nightmarish textures. As such, Premature Graves is a demanding but captivating exploration of mortal angst that requires undivided attention.
