MURDER MYSTERY

"Engineering nerds?" (pitchfork) who write songs that are "incontrovertibly fun." (yahoo music) Formed somewhere in New York City in late 2005, their debut LP 'ghost types' was released in April to acclaim from a host of tastemakers including Paste Magazine, popmatters, and the deli magazine, earning the perilous tag of "a band to watch" (the L magazine). Lyrically obsessed with the pitfalls of growing up, the band illustrates their stories with analog synth intricacy, psych-influenced harmony and a healthy dose of 90s college-radio indie.

"Murder Mystery is a pop band with a soul and a brain, expert at turning out catchy, hard-rocking, intelligent music in the mode of Nick Lowe, Magnetic Fields, or Talking Heads. There's isn't a single weak track on their self-released debut, Are You Ready for the Heartache Cause Here It Comes; the band's propulsive grooves reference everything from doo-wop to new wave, smoothly melded into their own unique style." -- THE VILLAGE VOICE

"All of the music employed to provide accompaniment to Coleman’s journeys is reminiscent to classic pop craft – of smart bass lines that send deep shivers through the songs, light bursts of guitar solo, primetime harmonies, laidback construction and short and sweet tendencies – making the easy connection to all of the work that The Beatles did, where, despite all of the complex compartments and layers, they always managed to make it come off as easy child’s play... the results are fantastic and sort of whimsical, making it feel as if you’ve heard the song before, like you’ve lived it and loved it before, though you haven’t." -- DAYTROTTER
