If you’re not having a great time halfway through the first cut on Big Murder’s new release, Shifting Ground, you’d better check your pulse.
Because this high energy trio knows how to start a party. All three guys are lifelong musicians that play because they need to. It’s in their blood. And fortunately for us, they have an urgent desire to share the fun. Big Murder’s full throttle sound skips across the murky, listless tide of self-absorbed indie artist laments like a speedboat from hell.
The music that guitarist Marcus David, drummer Evan Buckler and bassist Randy Hall make together doesn’t bump along whining about the relentless cascade of life’s unfair challenges and heartbreaks. It unashamedly cuts right to the heart of the matter – as the crow flies – with a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor. And it passes the only test that truly matters. When you head out to the back yard to tweeze the topiary, you’re sure to find yourself snipping in rhythm and humming a bar or two from My Love Is A Pinto.
So there you have it – the skinny on a breath-of-fresh-air new band. They’re loud, fun and refreshingly unpretentious. Now you have a fist full of reasons to give them a listen, but if you like, I can always give you one more.
-Philip Perry, August 2016
