Murder by Death hasn't shape-shifted so much as adapted and outrun any quantifiable niche. Charting time within the gothic Southern folk arena on breakout LP In Boca Al Lupo, then the devilish folklore overtones of Red of Tooth and Claw and Good Morning, Magpie, MBD stretches its legs on their newest record, Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon. The band's first release for Bloodshot Records is just as dark as previous efforts, and vocalist/guitarist Adam Turla's spooky baritone is equally as menacing. Those main elements are drizzled over a richer, fuller sound, which at times reaches into heavier cuts like the sinister "Straight at the Sun." Bend, Oregon's Larry and his Flask promise an explosive opener to MBD. Their new record, By the Lamplight, proffers a grass-punk revival of epic proportions. RYAN J. PRADO
