Got No Friends

Back in my A-Z post on Gungor, I said that they were one of rare “Christian” groups that were actually good.  Since then,  I’ve found I’m almost tired of them.  I recognize the work behind what they’ve done, but it just doesn’t have the endurance I thought it would.  And I do remember while making that post that their early work was mostly unimpressive.
So enter “The Vespers.”  Here’s what you have to know:

The two gentlemen are brothers and the two ladies are sisters.

The oldest is 22 and the youngest is 19.

They make Americana/bluegrass/folk.

They’re from Nashville.

Some of their songs (such as in the video) are pretty good, if not exceptional.

Each of them are strong believers in Christ.

This isn’t a group of dolled up kids with all sorts of effects to hide their weaknesses, it’s real music.  And I’d ask for nothing less.

Only time will tell with The Vespers.  Hopefully in a week I won’t grow tired, but in the meantime and forever more… God bless each of ’em.
