Releases on Boring Machines:Pain is on our side now (2014)
Father Murphy is the sound of the Catholic sense of Guilt. A downward spiral aiming at the bottom of the hollow, and then digging even deeper.
Through the years, the band became one of the most peculiar musical entities coming out of Italy, part of that community that Simon Reynolds started to call the new “Italian Occult Psychedelia”.
The duo, well known for their really intense live shows, something in between a ritual and an artistic performance, furiously performed all over Europe, playing all the most important festivals (Le guess who?, Liverpool Psych Fest, Incubate, Supernormal, …), toured North America with the likes of Deerhoof, Dirty Beaches, Iceage and Xiu Xiu and recently joined Jarboe on stage for a tour to promote a collaborative EP.
Their album titled “Rising. A reqiuem for Father Murphy” was announced as their final. It was released in April 2018 by Avant! Records and Ramp Local.
