Murder By Death are another band that I'm not a hugh fan of, but I've seen them perform live two songs in which I was very impressed. Both of the songs are from their third record, In Bocca al Lupa which is an Italian phrase mostly used to imply "Good Luck." As the album title indicates, the band gets their kicks form obscure references, which is also evident from their name, the title of the 1976 mystery spoof featuring the late Truman Capote. Now the songs I were referring to earlier are Brother, and today's song Dynamite Mine. One of the things I loved about their performance was the electric cello, which gave a haunting tone to the set, namely to Dynamite.
