Liam O'Brien A really cohesive and beautiful album. The guitar tones this guy creates are amazing. Helped me nurse my wounds after a Fucked up relationship. It will never be the same, and that's okay Favorite track: Where You Rest Your Head at Night.

xhrl_ Wonderful mix of the heavy and the ambient/acoustic atmospheres in the music of PFB. An outstanding album and one of the best in 2014! I'd recommend it to a wide range musical tastes. All that is required is perky ears for the somber, serious and melancholy. Listeners of dark folk, downbeat electronica, black metal and even acoustic indie fans might enjoy this beautiful LP. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Golden.

When it's late and I can't sleep I'd circle your block Looking for any signs That you may Still be awake And If I were to call you Would you come Outside to talk and If it got too cold Would you invite me in To show me Where you rest your head at night
Desideratum 03:26
I needed you here I needed you tonight I'll always
We walked to the beach that night Sand felt soft beneath my bare feet and Your nerves, were as clear as the moon Oh, so selfish of me I was was just happy to feel Anything at all As the sound of the waves Crashed into my heart I remembered the moon and the way you looked at me
Purple 02:51
Golden 16:27
Laying on your bed In your parents house Listening to your favorite Records on repeat Thinking about the girls Who want nothing to do with you Well the golden years Never happened to you Or anyone you thought you knew They all grew up to be miserable adults just waiting for the day they get to die


released May 13, 2014

Desideratum was written in various stages between October 2010 and December 2013. It wasn't recorded until the time between May and December 2013, except selections from the song "Desideratum" which were recorded in October 2010. All recordings were done at my home in Matawan NJ.

Mastered by James Plotkin

Planning For Burial were made of guitars, amplifiers, machines, whiskey, long drives, microphones, late nights, organs, tape loops, synths, bad sleep, piano, floor tom, snare, various delay and reverb units and hardwood floors
