Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Murder by Death - Masters in Reverse Psychology

These hands made of splinters
Keep knockin back the whiskey sours

What's cooler than a band with its very own cellist? Nothing, which is partly why I love
Murder by Death (originally known as Little Joe Gould). The band was discovered by Geoff Rickly of Thursday while playing a show in their hometown of Bloomington, IN. "Masters in Reverse Psychology," is a track off their sophomore LP--Who Will Survive, and What Will Be Left of Them. Filled with lyrics about the Devil and whiskey, Who Will Survive ... is a concept album about the Devil waging war against a small Western town. I'd highly recommend checking out the remainder of this album if you like today's track.

Their third LP, In Bocca al Lupo is also a pretty solid album. However, I have no clue what the lead singer did with his voice in the fourth album, Red of Tooth and Claw. It still has that low Johnny Cash like quality to it, but it went even deeper and it just makes it very awkward to listen to. Maybe that's just me.
