Murder By Death – Good Morning, Magpie
This is another band I found through an ad on the No Depression website. I’m not really sure how to describe them, if you go by their name you’d think they were a death metal band, obviously they’re no if you found them on No Depression. Being advertised on the No Depression website would make you think they’re a folk/Americana band. Windows (on my computer) says they’re an alt/punk band. This is the most likely genre.
I was expecting some folk/Americana type of music, but what I got was something I wasn’t quite prepared for. The first track is called Kentucky Bourbon, fantastic title, the track sounds a little bit like lounge music. Still a good song though, the vocals by Adam Turla is something to be admired.
I’m not really sure if alt/punk is the best way to describe this album the concept is something that has eluded me so far. But you don’t really have to understand the concept to feel it and to like it.
