Murder Mystery

Need good new music? Take a listen to Murder Mystery's album Are You Ready for the Heartache Cause Here it Comes! (Downloadable through the band's MySpace page or on iTunes, or purchase the CD through Insound.com.)

In a review last month, the Village Voice called them "a pop band with a soul and a brain," which sounds about right to me. The Voice cites Nick Lowe, The Magnetic Fields, or the Talking Heads as influences; I also hear The Kinks and The Strokes. Maybe they're all in there - or maybe Murder Mystery is just very much its own thing. Either way, they deserve a hearing.

And for entertainment, you can also watch this kooky, not-authorized-by-the-band video of their song Love Astronaut on YouTube.
