Songs for a Mystical Supper

church_belovedThose who tire of the holiday clatter and need rest might want to download some selections from Church of the Beloved’s latest digital album, Songs for a Mystical Supper. This Edmonds, Washington, church may be Lutheran in origin but their music will dance with the spirits of  anyone post-Solstice, Hijra, Advent, Hanukkah, or even Festivus. Think of these 12 tracks as a palate cleanser to remove any taste of holy residue left over from having consumed too much commercialized religion. Once cleansed, walk forward and see where the spirit may take you in 2014.
