Father Murphy - Anyway, Your Children Will Deny It
Label: Aagoo Records
Format: CD

intro

Forceful and compelling post-rock, which proves to be both orchestral and pastoral at once, from brooding Italian trio Father Murphy


The Italian trio Father Murphy drills their way into your ears and brain with eight tracks which range from sonic assaults to mesmerizing retreats in sound. The words make little sense and anyhow they get washed out in the blither. The urban rumble and ramshackle melody of Father Murphy grab all of the attention here though. The brooding workouts are in a league of their own, yet the concept remains a vague mystery. Far from being just moody poseurs, Father Murphy do bring on the big guns; 'In Praise of Our Doubts' with magnificent swifteness illustrates the many influences which Father Murphy take their inspiration from. Orchestral and pastoral; ultimately the album comes together as one, like a church congregation. One of the kind of the sort that turns into a revolt, Father Murphy's post-rock is well past the best before date, and still sounds fresh.
