Murder by Death, Shilpa Ray

When: Sun., July 12, 8 p.m. 2015

As its title, Big Dark Love, suggests, the seventh full-length album from Murder by Death is primarily concerned with love. But this ain’t your average ballad-heavy sapfest. The band has long tweaked the sonic conventions of folk, rock and Americana, so MBD’s take on love digs deeper than torch songs to examine the idea of love in all its forms. The band considers unusual vantage points, including loving someone unconditionally in the face of moral complications, the love between a parent and child and the possibility of loving too much. Murder by Death play the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington on Sunday, July 12, with rocker Shilpa Ray.

Price: $15/18. AA
