Murder By Death: Another Bottle Of Gin

Murder By Death’s sixth album, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon, is yet another immersive alt-country dive into the dark backwoods territory that they have made home. Singer/guitarist Adam Turla’s deep and dolorous vocals, often relating tales about revenge and murder, are swathed in jangling guitars and plaintive cello lines. Heavily echoing the masters of the form, such as Johnny Cash and Nick Cave, with their own full and unmistakable arrangements, this band tops the murder ballad with a theatrical flair. Murder By Death will be at the Starland Ballroom on Oct. 19 and The Paramount, in Huntington, NY, on Oct. 20.
