another artist

It seems I’ve been introduced to a number of exceptional musicians lately – at least I think they’re exceptional. Obviously, the appreciation of art in any form tends to be pretty subjective. Like many, I enjoy thinking “But I really know what is good and what isn’t” – esp when it comes to music. Recognizing that just isn’t true, as a raging amateur music critic – I offer the sound of Alexi Murdoch for consideration.

    I like it.

    There’s a band I’d like you to check out, actually. I think you’d dig em. They call their style “psychedelic folk-rock” I think it’s pretty apt. They’re called “I Come To Shanghai”


    You can download their album for free, and then if you like it, choose to pay. A good model for an independent band, methinks…

    Anyway, it’s a little sad because many of their songs come from this “post-Christian” viewpoint. Someone who wanted the church, found the church exclusive, and left the church. Anyway…interesting stuff. Polished enough to be good to listen to, but raw enough to be unique. In my humble opinion, that is.

re: the random-ness

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
