He Knows Just the Right Kind of Song…

The Trees Community. The Christ Tree

The Trees Community. The Christ Tree

Dubbed by Pig State Recon as the “weirdest thing Christians ever made”, this record has been blowing my mind and bringing me back to my ecstatic, mystic-gnostic roots. This CD is a selection of the extensive recordings from the 1970s of the Trees Community, known for their original liturgical compositions using wildly varied musical instruments like the Venezuelan folk harp, the Chinese Koto, tamboura, cello..among others, as well as haunting a cappella arrangements. It is the best Christmas Album you could really hope to discover today, Christmas Eve. It cuts through all the ubiquitous, bullying sentiment at this time of year with authentic joy.  Let us turn then to this psychedelic commune rock with sincere faith, in all its forms and paths, and eschew those sly architects of misery that insist on vapid holiday cheer.

My favourite track from this record:

Jesus He Knows
