The girls were a little worried about interviewing a band with the name Murder by Death. The Bloomington, Indiana band probably gets that a lot, people thinking they are a metal band but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The band’s eighth album, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon (Bloodshot Records), released in September, is a dark and sometimes scary gothic-country album in the vein of Nick Cave, Tindersticks, The Pogues and Johnny Cash. It may take Connie and Olivia a few more years to refine their tastes and truly enjoy the style of music the band delivers, but they had a great chat with singer/guitar Adam Turla as Murder by Death rolled into Columbus on a tour with Say Anything.
And here’s the Good Morning America feature on Lil Bub.
