One of the best albums of 2013. In a wider sense you could file under similar categories to John Grant or Kurt Vile but, in my view, John Murry could be the dark horse who will come good. The album draws on Murry's own experiences of love, loss, heartbreak and death - he was technically dead in the back of an ambulance on one occasion during his heavy drug phase, but has thankfully lived literally to tell the tale. Lyrically beautiful, the songs are cut through with some searing guitar work and a great attitude. Standout tracks include Little Colored Balloons, Southern Sky, Things We Lost In The Fire and - my personal favourite - the truly wonderful 'feel' track (with accompanying 'classic'-style lead guitar break!) No te da ganas de reir, Senor Malverde. A stunning album that repays repeated listens - and it's equally good and moody with the lights on or off!
