Murder By Death is a rock band, make no mistake. But the band's dark, Gothic aesthetic and prominent cello lines complicate its raucous sound. Formed in 2000 in Bloomington, Ind., the group specializes in whiskey-inspired, "no depression" country songwriting. Lyrical themes touch on all sorts of haunting, ghastly material, from zombies to the Devil. This year's Good Morning, Magpie is the band's fifth full-length. It's a ballad-heavy affair, with dark and suspenseful narratives.
