Why: Seattle-based Murder City Devils last released an album over ten years ago, and their organ-laced, gravel-mouthed rock n’ roll still packs the sort of punch that feels like a rarity. Think bar fights, whiskey drinks and bad tattoos with good stories, put a soundtrack to it, and you’re pretty damn close. The White Ghost Has Blood On Its Hands Again, the band’s latest, picks up where the Devils last left us wanting: grimy guitar dirges over vocalist Spencer Moody’s characteristic howl, echoing basslines, and plenty of old soul swagger to boot. These not-so-gentlemen have been playing music for nearly twenty years… we suggest you hop on the bandwagon before you get left in the dust.
