I enjoy listening to Bon Iver. Despite them making a post-modern type of music. I still love the sound, and their music has a lot of "heart" I guess. It's more of a guilty pleasure.

Everyone just put up what they're bumping or whatever they were last playing :banana:

They don't make them like Iggy no more.
I started listening to Peter Mamonov and his band Zvuki Mu this week. I watched the Russian Orthodox movie The Island that he stars in a few weeks ago and I found out at the same time I watched that is when he passed away, sadly.

This interview of his good friend about Mamonov’s life was very interesting. And I think he might be a true example of what “The Holy Fool” is. Checkout this interview and the band Zvuki Mu.

Is he a “Holy Fool”? Do you like his music?

I've seen several films that Peter Mamonov was in, and loved his acting in all of them. Hadn't listened to any of his band's music until just now, though.


Definitely some "The Jesus Lizard" vibes from that song.

Why do I like this song?

Incidentally, it’s not about incest. It’s about a prostitute whom goes by the moniker of “Mama”.

But there’s something about the spooky music, droning drumbeat, incantation-like singing and patient stanzas that makes me think of something altogether other than prostitutes.

It makes me think of the sound of immanent judgement.

Ananias and Sapphira lying to St. Peter.

Lying behind a smile.

Lying to the Holy Spirit, even—yet the Holy Spirit sees well beyond smiles and masks of all sorts. Lifts them up, one at time—exposing the real ugliness beneath.

And so now comes the inquisition.

“Why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land…

“Whiles it remained, was it not thine own…

“And after it was sold, was it not in thine own power…

“Why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart?”

That’s not the side of God happy parishioners like to see when they’re bringing their small children and infants to the Sunday morning mass.

But it’s the night side of God.

With God having created the night just as the day.

The severity of love.

Johnny Cash, my favorite country musician.

Oh, he's everyone's favorite (not that there's anything wrong with that). He's a country musician with enough of a rock music image (wearing al black, singing live in prisons) where he really doesn't come across as a "country" artist. Most people I know who despite country music usually make an exception for him.
