John Murry Returns With New Album 'The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes'
Updated: Jul 2, 2021
American go indie-rock artist John Murry is back with his third album 'The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes'. A starlit and wondrous collection of tracks, it’s an album of startling imagery and insinuating melodies brining together experimentation with warm and analogue Americana instrumentation.
Having picked up rave reviews from the likes of Uncut, Quietus and Mojo for his previous releases, this new album gives a clear insight into why he has gained such acclaim with a level of intricacy and intrigue immediately comparable to he likes of The National and Nick Cave. From the gentle flow of 'Oscar Wilde (Came Here To Make Fun Of You)' to the biting fuzz of the title track 'The Stars Are God's Bullet Holes' to soft, stripped back 'Di Kreutser Sonata' the album covers a lot of bases flowing between moments of delicate melancholy before launching into distorted experimentation. A brilliant insight into John's clear level of musical intelligence and ability, this album has all the hallmarks of an artist who knows exactly what he is and exactly what he wants to be.
Out now via Submarine Cat Records, 'The Stars Are God’s Bullet Holes' is a fascinating listen well worth your time. Listen to the full album below:
