Showtime’s Dexter gives us an interesting foray into one serial killer’s mind. It’s something you’d expect from a station like Showtime, whose original series lineup is pretty impressive to begin. But it’s not something you’d necessarily expect in a music video. Watching “So Now You Have To Choose Between My Two (Black) Lungs” by Father Murphy, I cannot help but picture the destructive figure as a madman in the making.
Father Murphy is a band from Torino, Italy and their dark music is often reminiscent of geniuses like Thee Silver Mt. Zion And Tra La La Band or Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Filled with classically based dissonant instrumentation, heart- and gut-wrenching lyrical and vocal parts, and an overall leaning toward experimentation, Father Murphy proudly joins the ranks of these bands and does so with mysterious ease and style.
Their album …And So He Told Us To Turn To The Sun is available now on Aagoo Records.
