Reviews

Lots of people in the press are saying nice things about the record! Here’s a selection:

‘God Help The Girl is both incredibly simple and deceptively complex: the end results are surprisingly timeless, bringing to mind Twenties’ musicals, fifties’ jazz, 60s girl groups and shambling eighties’ indie’ _Music Week_

‘an expansive, eclectic set of classic pop . . .further confirms Murdoch as one of the finest songwriters of his era’ _Record Collector_

‘fans of chamber pop, Motown, the Lovin’ Spoonful and the Mamas and Papas will find much to cherish’ _Mojo_

‘a precious antidote to an overdose of earnest, bearded Men in Rock these past few years’ _Plan B_

‘a spry Bacharach swing encompassing Pearly Spencer style 60s production pop’ _The Guardian_

‘the elements that make Belle and Sebastian so precious are here in Murdoch’s storytelling panache and encapsulation of outsiderdom’ _Attitude_

‘if Murdoch’s early woek evoked Felt working on a Bill Forsyth movie, God Help The Girl_ is something like The Zombies scoring Hal Hartley.’ _Uncut_
