John Mark McMillan - “Monsters Talk”
I am LOVING this album. It’s like Bon Iver meets Bruce Springsteen— ambient saxophone and guttural vocals, emotion and dreamy ambition. Listen to it in full at The Drop.
But on the night the cold wars bloom, You’re the only roof I’m standing under.
I am very excited about Inside Llewyn Davis, a film coming out in December about a singer-songwriter in New York City (he carries a cat around on the subway— sold). The soundtrack is up at NPR First Listen, and it’s great!
Tyler Lyle - “I Will Follow Love All The Way Home”
For those afraid to die alone
Think of all the friends that you have known
And every blade of grass
Every face that kissed you back
All the sunsets and pouring rain
Every joy and Holy pain
Every kiss and bloody stain
Ah, the proof that we have lived!
In no beginning and no end!
Every flash of light you’ve seen!
Every color, every dream!
Will be forever singing on
In the Holy Mind of God-
The Immortal burning Sun with
Every person that you’ve loved!
And I swear it will be enough.
And you’ll be there…
And Love will follow you all the way home.
