In my head : Gungor

from Gungor's new album, Beautiful Things:



"The Earth is Yours"
Creation sees You
And starts composing
The fields and trees they start rejoicing.

I love the bells and exuberant instrumentation - reminds me of Sufjan.




"Beautiful Things"
All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You...
You make beautiful things,
You make beautiful things out of us.


Yesterday some of us had a jam session and made an attempt to play these songs. It was hard trying to figure out how to modify it for un-professionals (and sadly w/o a xylophone), but a lot of fun trying at least.
