I was thinking the other day I wish I was the choir leader because we would be doing some kick-*** songs. Maybe with bongos. I’d get released, but it would be great while it lasted.]]>
First, I purchased “A Hymn Revival” by The Lower Lights, and couldn’t have been happier. It’s available on Amazon via direct MP3 download, and I’ve been listening to it for the past couple of days, and can’t get enough.
Second, I also picked up Susan M’s suggestions of The Sabre Rattler’s “Twixt Me and the Peaceful Rest,” and by golly, they were nice enough to send me a little email with a thank you note in it! I thought it would have more a country twang to it (based on some of the comments), but it’s definatley got an alt-folk ring to it. It reminds me a bit of bands like Mumford and Sons. It’s got a much more upbeat tempo to it, and I think it does a good job of keeping the spirit of the hymns.
I also picked up Clayton Pixton’s “Hymns Anew” album from Amazon’s MP3 service. Clayton and Skye do the bumper music to Mormon Stories, and he’s got a great talent for giving a new view on some great classic hymns (I can’t get enough of his rendition of “Adam-ondi-Ahman” and “Come Come Ye Saints.” Another great album.
Any more suggestions you folks have, I’d love to devour them. I’m finding that some of the hokey overproduced Deseret Book artists just don’t do it for me…]]>
