Hollywood Undead's Swan Songs. I used to be unable to stand pop music in general, but I must confess I've come around to it and quite enjoy 'hip-hop' now. I'd post the lyrics, but it would probably get me banned. ;)

If you give it a fair chance and allow yourself to embrace modern American popular culture, you'll find out you quite enjoy it. Not that it should be to the exclusion of Classical Music, especially from the Romantic era, such as Rachmaninoff...but it can be appreciated in its own way.

Quite a bit of Rachmaninov (The Bells, Symphonic Dances), Vaughan Williams and John Tavener. I must try and hunt out some music by Arvo Pärt who I've heard recommended here. Tavener seems to get a bit more minimalistic with each new composition.

Often when I'm drawing or painting I listen to a fair bit of "Boards of Canada" and "Biosphere".

Listening to today?
Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2

Sergei Rachmaninoff is one of my all-time favorite composers, and I love his Concerto 2 (and also 3). Here are some pretty good performances:

Speaking of the killers, I just read in the latest Rolling Stone magazine
Mistake #1: Reading Rolling Stone.

Quote
that Brandon Flowers (the killers singer) is a devout Mormon.
Mistake #2: "killers" should be written "Killers'."

Quote
For some reason, this creeped me out.
Mistake #3: Paying attention to celebrities' religion.

Quote
I guess the Mormons have the Osmans, Napoleon Dynamite and the killers as a claim to fame.  :D
Mistake #4: Their name is the Osmonds.

So why be so judgmental of others?

Andis,

I can only strive to be as humble and non judgmental as you  :D

The soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou?

I love that CD. I once had a priest who said if the Orthodox Churches in America were to create their own tones they should look no further than the music of the "old plain song" of the south and mountain regions to come up with tones that work with American English. An excellent example would be "Down to the River to Pray", "O Death", and "Po' Lazarus".  All of them done accapella and with  deep spiritual movement in the songs similar to the tones found in the Orthodox Church for impact to the soul of the listener.

Goodness gracious, am I the only one who's likes and listens to country music 'round here?

Hey y'all,

 Since music is such an integral part of our lives, I was wondering what everyone is listening to? I just discovered a Lebanese gal name Maya Nasri (Hubbaaaa hubba!). I'm usually spinning something Irish or Arabic, but I like almost anything except for gangsta rap and the really heavy metal stuff... Feel free to list religious and secular favorites!

If it's not too personal, out of curiosity, and given that we just had a thread about Orthodox members in music groups, have you guys released any albums?

We've only been together since October, so no album yet, but we did record four songs in January for two upcoming releases, one a split 7" with another band due out this spring and a full fledged 45rpm single later in the year.

You can check out really really rough demos of two songs on our Myspace page.  Those are basically myself, a drum machine, and our singer in my bathroom (great reverb in there) recorded via a USB mic and multitrack recording software.  As I said, they're really rough, especially "You Were Loved".  Horrible singing in that one! ;)

BOB MARLEY!

My oldest son, Noah, was born on Bob Marley's birthday (Feb 6); and my other son, Zion, was born on the anniversary of Bob Marley's passing (May 11). Coincidence? Nuh mon! Like Bob Marley sings, it's a "Natural Mystic!" With a divine sign like this, it was destined that I should wind up in the Ethiopian Orthodox Church!

Bob had some great lyrics, full of biblical references. I think he was a modern day David, playing reggae Psalms to the glory of JAH (God). Here are a couple  of my favorite Marley lyrics:

"When you get down and you quarrel every day
You're saying prayers to the devil I say."

[Positive Vibration]

"Someone will have to pay
For the innocent blood
That they shed every day
Children mark my words
It's what the Bible say!"

Brad Paisley... Even if some of y'all don't like country music (gasp!), I'm willing to bet you'll at least enjoy the subject matter of all of these songs. 

"I'm Gonna Miss Her"  He's just kiddin' ladies...He's actually a very devoted husband and father (he's married to Kimberly Williams of Father Of The Bride) and he's a Christian.

You can check out really really rough demos of two songs on our Myspace page.  Those are basically myself, a drum machine, and our singer in my bathroom (great reverb in there) recorded via a USB mic and multitrack recording software.  As I said, they're really rough, especially "You Were Loved".  Horrible singing in that one! ;)



Your page didn't load any tracks for some reason. Maybe it's my connection.

edit: nevermind- got it working. Kind of reminds me a cross between The Bruisers, The Misfits, and Black Flag, if that makes any sense.  :)

Here is a link to a video of one of my favorite reggae songs by the legendary reggae band Black Uhuru.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsnR3mKHX5Y&feature=related

This song is called Abortion, and in true Rasta style they don't mince words. Mykal Rose, the lead singer, begins by exclaiming "First degree murder!" Listen for other lyrics such as,

"Oh what a shame to see my Black sisters going down the drain."

"Woman, you can feel it!"

"I want my little youth, I want my little girl."

"Don't deal with abortion!"

A nice video, a great song, and a great message!!! Hope you enjoy.
