I don’t have time this week to give you to much information about these bands or songs, but I will just share some favorites with you–ok? Ok great, I am glad you are with me!
In no particular order:
Josh Ritter – “Mind’s Eye” from one of my favorite albums, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter
Sufjan Stevens – “To Be Alone With Me” – It is really hard to find decent Sufjan videos on YouTube–this one is pretty good. This song is beautiful: to be alone with me you went up on a tree . . . I’ve never known a man who loved me. I have seen Sufjan three times in concert and every time he ends with this song–I think maybe he wants to say something to his fans about the cross.
The Avett Brothers – “Murder in the City.” This song is absolutely beautiful. If you haven’t listened to Avett Brothers, you should! I must admit, I am a sucker for indie artists with thick beards (Iron and Wine, Ray LaMontagne, Jose Gonzales etc).
Josh Wilson – “Amazing Grace” – I wanted to find a video of Wilson’s song called “The Saints” but I couldn’t find one on YouTube, so I posted this video–I am also a sucker for songs about Christ’s second coming! Wilson is definitely worth checking out! This video is a sampling of Wilson’s nifty guitar work–check it out!
