Pretty Much Perfect

While catching up on the blogs I follow, I was introduced to this band:

The Civil Wars.

I do believe that I will be eternally in that blogger's debt. (Check out the original post here.)

In the meantime, I feel compelled to pay it forward. This band is amazing. Their harmonies, their musicality, their sheer gawgeousness. I'm in love.

I highly recommend visiting The Civil War's MySpace page. Check out the other videos and songs thereupon, then download the album. It's awesome. It is -- as the subject line attests -- pretty much perfect.

... Go.

... NOW.

Christian Music - TFK

Oh, Thousand Foot Krutch, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

First is the relief and comfort of Christian lyrics and intention to support excellently rockin' music.

I love you for your energy, for driving through me so I want to jump up and down, adulthood be hanged.

For the thrill of screaming in your otherwise unscreamy music.

Your harmonies (and inadvertant resemblance to Raine Maida upon first listen)...

For 2:15 - 2:57 of "Break the Silence"...

I love you for every album, for filling a need in our playlists for hard Christian rock.

Also, I love you for being Canadian, though that has nothing to do with anything.
