While doing a bit of research into one of my favorite Christian figures, Shane Claiborne, I stumbled onto a group called mewithoutYou. Often, when finding something new, I dive right in and experience it the best way I can. On the band’s site, there is a media player that contains every song from their album Brother, Sister.
mewithoutYou is one of those intelligent, indie bands who may never make it mainstream because they are too busy making art. It is hard not to fall in love with them in a short amount of time, especially if you enjoy interesting sound mixes, an artsy vocal style that borders singing and speaking, and lyrics that prove how great songwriters are not afraid to expose their heart, as painful and unsettling as it may be.
Check out the media player below and I hope you enjoy mewithoutYou. They’re not for everyone, but I think you will be surprised.
