Murder by Death routinely kicks ass as a live act, and their albums are a great shot of dark country-tinged rock. Think Johnny Cash scored by Ennio Morricone, and you’re in the right ballpark. Their original work is tight, atmospheric, and filled with some of the best songwriting you’ll find, but often the best entrance to a new artist is seeing how they translate what you’re already familiar with. About a year ago, they ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund a new record, and offered some high end funders the opportunity to select songs for the band to cover on a future album. They’ve just released the final product, As You Wish, and it’s an incredible collection of tracks. Their take on Motorhead is just one delicious taste from this particular banquet of an album, which you can pick up over on Bandcamp for a mere ten bucks.
