Simple, cathedral-like chant harmonies add to the creepy vibe of the vocals, a funeral procession led by Nick Cave through the streets of Sergio Leone/David Lynch short films. All round? If it were a canned pasta meal it would be a tasty bowl of Bertold Brecht's Spaghetti Western-Styled Dirge-ee-Oh's - Craig Gilbert, Verbicide magazine
When I played a non-band set in Oakland, California, opening for the Italian band Father Murphy, they completely floored me. I had never heard of them until them, but their album "And He Told Us to Turn to the Sun" packs some of the most original, beautiful music I'd heard in a long time - think eerily spacious song with strange yet perfect arrangements. And such nice people! I'm a huge fan - John Dietrich (Deerhoof) as interviewed by The Indipendent
Truly, this Italian bunch inhabit an extravagant and rich musical landscape indeed, their Robert Wyatt keyboards, their Samla Mamas Manna vocals, their This Heat-meets-Canterbury drumming - Julian Cope, Head Heritage
What We Need & What You GetFather Murphy has a great opportunity to tour Us Us and Canada May and June 2012 for 7 weeks with two other amazing bands! We are working with a great American tour booking agency that will provide the booking but we still need to raise $4000 for plane tickets, visa costs, van rental, and any additional costs we may run into.
Any amount of donations will help us out a lot! Thank you so much!!!
You have our blessing!
