As the US grapples with the behemoth that is the new Swans record, here comes Father Murphy, an Italian band that not only recognizes the dark heart beating under the jackhammer percussion and emotional bombast, but also boasts a similar, Swans-like organ. The group's latest four-song EP, Pain Is on Our Side Now, has almost more impact than Swans' To Be Kind—in part because its four songs are much shorter and therefore cut to the quick. This gives you less time to steel yourself for the onslaught of scrabbling percussion and inky swells of droning guitar and bass. ROBERT HAM
