Another season of Lent is upon us and that means it's time for another round of our Lenten Soundtrack. This time, we're kicking things off with a song by Lissie – a criminally under-recognized and wonderfully talented singer who I recently discovered while watching the new season of David Lynch's Twin Peaks.
Come in from the cold and warm up with our winter playlist. We've gathered old and new into a compilation that we hope fits nicely into the seasonal rhythm. From our hearts to yours.
I have a love-hate relationship with “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Sure, it’s easy to hum along to, it puts smiles on the faces of millions, and easily jumps into the top ten Christmas songs to play on repeat when Bruce Springsteen immortalizes it with his rendition. And yet...

Did I cry listening to Andra Day and Stevie Wonder theologize about the future of Christmas? Not quite. But I probably should have.

We're back with round two of our soundtrack series, this time with a song from an artist that I feel like I discovered all too late – or at least too late to appreciate while he was still living. The first time I can recall consciously hearing and enjoying one of David Bowie's songs... Continue Reading →
