Father Murphy

Back in April, experimental Italian duo Father Murphy released their latest (and possibly last?) album "Rising: Requiem for Father Murphy," a thick and heady collection of dark folk and psychedelia.  The album plays off like some kind of contagious religious hysteria, all speaking in tongues and gyrations from the rafters.  Solemn psych dirges play alongside and within ominous field recordings and ritualistic pagan harmonies all with the fervor of worshipers in a centuries old cathedral.  Eat the body.  Drink the blood.  And listen to "Gradual" below.  Then get the record here via Ramp Local (if you're in the US) or here via Avant! (for everywhere else).
