Murder By Death Are Ready For World Cafe: Next With Big Dark Love


Murder By Death Are Ready For World Cafe: Next With Big Dark Love This week for World Cafe: Next it is a band that has been around for a decade and a half. In fact Big Dark Love is Murder By Death's seventh album. But they certainly deserve a wider following. After years in Bloomington, Indiana they recently relocated to Louisville, Kentucky where they recorded their new album. This band handles a lot of different music from intense indie rock ballads to rootsy things equally well and there is some very good writing on this new album.
