The doors to this church—the church of gospel music—are always open.
You don’t need to believe anything to enter. All you need are ears to hear.

Brooklyn All-Stars (featuring Joe Yawn), “No Cross, No Crown,” live

Tired of the same ol’ same ol’?

Glenn Branca Ensemble, live, New York (The Kitchen), 1995; Symphony No. 8 (“The Mystery” [1992]), Symphony No. 10 (“The Mystery, Part 2” [1994])

Got some headphones? This should be played loud.

More? How ’bout a (terrific) live performance, recorded yesterday at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival? Go to WFMU-FM; click, under “Recently added archives” (lower left corner), “5/27/11: Live Broadcasts and Special Events”—Branca starts at 2:05.

Still more? Here.
