And while you’re at it, be sure to check out noisetrade.com, a new website where a bunch of Mbird-approved artists, including Derek Webb, Waterdeep and Alex Mejias, have made their records available for free download. Alex is one of the men behind High Street Hymns, our all-time favorite “praise” recording, and he has just released his first record under his own name. It’s phenomenal, and you can find it on the site.
Alright, off to the promised land!
