Music Diary – 13th July

Hey Musiclovers all around the world – welcome to my music diary again!

Today back in 2011 I received a very nice and special release from Murder By Death: This awesome band from Bloomington (Indiana) started a split vinyl single project for which they invite a group or musician who covers a Murder By Death song – and vice versa. In this case The Builders And The Butchers recorded the tracks „Ball and Chain“ and „Until Morale improves the Beatings will continue“. In reverse, Adam Turla, Sarah Balliet, Matt Armstrong,  Dagan Thogerson and Scott Brackett recorded their versions of „In the Branches“ and „Down this Hole“.

BildThe singles of this fine project are very limited editions of 1.000 copies worldwide. Before this release Murder By Death did the same with William Elliott Whitmore, O’Death, Amanda Palmer (from The Dresden Dolls) and Sam Lowry. More information about the 7 series you can find here:
