Between Christian Rock and a Hard Place

April 21, 2006

I have decided that music honestly is one of the most amazing things ever. Obviously, this isn’t a new development since I have been obsessed with music since I got my first “Mylon LeFevre” tape when I was 7.

I just find it interesting how three-dimensional it is. There are the obvious things that stick out like genre, tone, recording quality, and subject matter. What I find interesting however is that all of these things can add these underlying ideas and emotions. For instance, when I listen to Sufjan Stevens vs. Jose Gonzalez, they are fairly similar aesthetically. They are both indie-folk singer-songwriters. However, when I listen to Jose I get a much bigger sense of originality. It feels like he is truly engrossed in the art he is creating rather than just trying to evoke a certain mood. I LOVE Stevens, I am just stating differences. Through Jose’s whispery voice I hear intensity and conviction.

Anyway, I started a new blog for album reviews and another one for my short stories and other miscellaneous writings. Check them out if you wish:

(Isn’t weird that I made a post that doesn’t have to do with Christianity?)
