As one reviewer put it, "simply sweeping in its scope". A gathering of influences from the Fall, the Velvet Underground, and Pavement——jamming indie rock that crackles and pops.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beginning in 1999, murder mystery is a blend of influences from The Fall, Pavement, Sebadoh, and the Velvet Underground (from where the group got its name) gathered to form a sound creation that barrels through with impassioned delivery.

The bands roots lie in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, where in 1999 they began. Drawing heavily on Detroit based groups, like the MC5 and Mitch Ryder as well as indie rock fundamentals, the band recorded several EP's before relocating to Detroit. As the group began a more determined approach towards practicing and songwriting they also began conversations with and signed to DetroitSounds' Records.

This--their first release on DetroitSounds'--showcases a band with a strong future. These initial tracks showcase strong instrumental arrangements with vocals from the more-spoken-then-sung school of thought. This is Murder Mystery's sounding blast.

Real Detroit Weekly

"Murder Mystery are good old fashioned college rock."
The guitars are thin and uber-indie rock in that old school sense, the vocals are sort of Velvets-meet-math while the songs aspire to Pavement. Murder Mystery are good, old fashioned college rock. Murder Mystery have done their homework and are doing this well.

"They manage to capture the sound and the spirit of bands like the Fall and VU a
When Murder Mystery starts chanting "Got to get my groove on" on the second track of the CD: 'Halatosis', you know you are in for something different. Taking their moniker from a Velvet Underground song, the Detroit-based Murder Mystery show promise with their debut six-song EP. They manage to capture the sound and the spirt of bands like The Fall and VU and mix it up with recent bands such as Pavement and the Flaming Lips, making it sound fresh. In some of the songs, the band lets the music do the talking and doesn't clutter it up with too many lyrics. This is prevalent in the tune 'Fuzzhause', a song of silent desperation where the guitars express even more than the words convey.

Capping of the CD with the simply titled 'Bears' - a little ditty about getting in a gunfight with the woodland creatures - it shows a lighter side of the band with the dark name.
