A SHORT HISTORY OF DECAY
this is the Second album from the Cult US Singer Songwriter - an intensely personal document of an artist’s fall from grace.
It contains all the tragic elements of that unwritten Southern Gothic novel: the revelations of a man coming to terms with the personal shortcomings, the flaws and the perverse twists of fate that led him to the end of one journey and the beginning of another. “It’s not a comfortable listen but, then again, we wouldn’t really want it any other way.” 8/10 – Americana uk, “John Murry shares Mark Eitzel’s model of the damaged troubadour – his songs are intimate and confessional, revealing details that we don’t want to know but that we’re almost desperate to hear. It’s the car-crash analogy again. We don’t want to listen, but we can’t stop ourselves.” 8/10 – gig soup
