        Murder by Death celebrates 10 years of modern roots music
          
            by Gene Armstrong

            The Tryst is nothing if not ambitious. Their third studio album, Truth Be Told, once again recombines the genres of popular music history like Legos into abstract shapes: a little Sheryl Crow pop in the vocals; an Anita O'Day croon; some jazzy, silky brushing on a floor tom; lots of funk-twang bass; a dollop of orchestral funk; and the occasional acoustic folk.…
