I’ve been enjoying these two albums immensely. Wendell Kimbrough is a musician from Washington, D.C. His songs make me smile because of their wide range of musical influence. Also, several of his songs sound extremely happy in the music, but the lyrics are a bit more sombre and reflective. The contrast is fascinating!
Wayfarer is a group from Seattle, Washington. They take the lyrics from old hymns and completely reinvent them. I think my favorite from this album is Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me.
You can download both albums for free from Noisetrade by following the links below.
Also, if you just want to listen to the music, rather than have it for your own, there’s Grooveshark for that!
