Thursday Afternoon Links!

Just a couple of neat links for today!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Everyone has to start somewhere, and I got my music blogging start at  Since that time it has become South Carolina’s best source for local bands, and this link is just another example of that.  They managed to snag an interview with budding Christian artist John Mark McMillan.  John Mark hails from Charlotte and is one of Christian music’s rising stars, check out the interview here:

A Conversation With John Mark McMillan

One other interesting link for today.  GRAMMY winners Arcade Fire are enjoying a new jolt of success, and hopefully a lot of people are checking out their older albums such as the great Neon Bible (Which I personally enjoyed far more than The Suburbs).  The band often makes use of spiritual themes in their music, and this interesting article discusses the themes of that very album.  Enjoy!

Have a great day, enjoy wearing green and watching the NCAA tournament!

I have *tried* to get into Arcade Fire via The Suburbs and it’s been an utter fail. It just sounds like there’s too much going on in all their songs all the time… like no one musician ever really gets heard in the mush of everything going on.

I hope A.F. fans don’t riot outside my house after reading this … though I’d have to admit “inciting a riot” in my sleepy little neighborhood would be kinda cool. lol

I’ll look up Neon Bible on Grooveshark and see if that fares any better.
