Review: Elizabeth Cook- Gospel Plow
I worshiped at St Paul's Cathedral earlier this year. I'm a far cry from Anglican, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to get a sense of how it's done by the high and mighty. The ceremony was beautiful. Even so, Elizabeth Cook's 2012 release Gospel Plow is a more accurate reflection of my faith. Raw country gospel speaks to me. Here's a live version of "Hear Jerusalem Calling," the least appealing song on the project. My favorite selection is a harrowing reading of Lou Reed's "Jesus," which almost certainly reveals a great deal about me.
John Tchicai and David Ware have died.
Maybe I should re-immerse myself in punk. Based on this performance by No Statik, it shouldn't be difficult to get up to speed.
I love to see real people talking about music. In this case, the subject is Oddisee.
