Belle and sebastian
first christian album. its fun.
some 50s soul or r&b. blues music. country music.
are niceee...C16th India!!!
i think it's more of a mischievous thing than something he really means. he doesn't reference it on anything other than Second Attention from memory.
I think some of the lyrics on the omen bones one are christian as well, if remember right...
It's entirely possible it could just be one massive Dylan reference/pisstake or something. Second attention is very Dylan anyway.
by Big Star?
It's probably a bit too sarcastic to count I suppose.
A lot of religious soul/gospel is great.
I'm never too sure about how much of Spiritualized/Spacemen 3 is religious. "No God only Religion" probably gives it away though.
Sufjan Stevens and Low.
nusrat fateh ali khan
my dad loves him big time
I love, love, love religious songs - mostly songs sung by repentant athiests though -
Saint Judes Infirmary
Bonnie Prince Billy
seems to be a bit of a bit more christian for real now after the last record...
, which i forgot to mention.
I may make a religious songs mixtape.
stryper!!!!!!!!!dont forget them
they really wrong though
i forgotted. They had a car - painted up like the band.
You didn't state which religion
I like most music of the sort Tristan describes.
Also Leonard Cohen
Lift To Experience
Brand New (maybe)
make me want to go to church every sunday
'Halos and lassos' by HHC is almost shocking in its unabashed songs of praise, and it's absolutely beautiful Unicornsy pop.
They're amazing musically, shame about those incessant christian lyrics though.
pedro the lion.
if only they'd got the big break instead of Trivium
mentioned on here was about religion (i don't tend to pay much attention to lyrics, i just like the way words sound) and i like that i didn't know.
Wooden Wand and Iron and Wine, both beautiful. And of course B&S and Sufjan Stevens
"the everlasting now"
just a stranger on the bus
trying to make his way home
A Love Supreme. And tons of 50s/60s gospel. Halleluia!
Hank Williams singing as Luke The Drifter
Sam Cooke's early gospel career with the Soul Stirrers (eg 'If I could touch the hem of his garment')
The Staple Singers
The Blind Boys of Alabama
Dorothy Love and the Gospel Harmonettes
Feel the gospel, people, get in your soul.
A little bit of Further Seems Forever.
Also, I have no idea whether their stuff is good in general but I heard quite a funky track by King's X recently.
The Golden Gate Quartet.
do you all hate them now or something?
I never got that in the lyrics.
And no, I still love the album, it gets a listen once a month or something...
surely you noticed that one?
talking about an imaginary flying dog with anne frank's face that happens to be called jesus christ. you cant trust these elephant six bastards
But it never seemed like he was talking about, you know, Jesus Christ. In fact *digs out record insert* here we go:
'And now a song for Jesus Christ and since this seems to confuse people i'd like to simply say that I mean what I sing alhtough the theme of endless endless on this album is not based on any religion but more in the beleif that all things seem to contain a white light within them that I see as eternal'
So there we go, not christian per say.
King of Carrot Flowers, Pts. 2-3 is about everything but him "loving" Jesus.
it's dead good, and seems to be seriously Christian.
I don't think you could misinterpret that more if you tried. It's clearly against the christian fundamentalist government, or something.
Yes, alongside Cursive its probably the most joyously anti-religious album I've heard this year
rosie thomas, probably
This band have filled out huge venues, been around for a very long time and had singles in the top 40.
Radio never played their stuff due to them being Christians.
I think they have they're own label now.
they arent really explicitly christian very often though are they?
LIFT TO EXPERIENCE!!!
Ok maybe they don't count cos they're being ironic but Jesus Songs is a great record.
Sufjan Stevens definatly.
Do Hefner count? Christian Girls? The Hymn songs? May God Protect Your Home? Or are they just all about shagging?
Listening to the Dawn Parade album and song The Passion seems very religious: 'Climb down from the cross and into my arms' etc. He could be being ironic I guess, but doesn't sound it. Is Greg a christain?
a Christian but which B&S songs eould you say are about religion? I'm not saying you're wrong I know they have some referenes but i've never though they were explicitly about the Big G.
And don't say If your feeling Sinister thats about wanking (probably).
no one's mentioned Woven Hand yet. Mosaic is easily the most horrifically underrated album of the year.
mentioned him above, actch
act of the apostles
the state i am in
