Common Prayer. Yeah, it was just a little over a year ago when we first laid ears on the single, "Us Vs. Them" and made that sucker a Jam of the Day. Then, lo and behold, we went on to put There Is A Mountain, the band's debut, on our list of the 50 Best Albums of 2010. Yeah, it was pretty much love at first listen, and our hearts continue to beat for Common Prayer.
While the band works on its sophomore effort, and we steady cross our fingers for a tour stop in Saint Louie, the foursome - Jason Sebastian Russo, Alexandra Marvar, Karen Codd and John Anderson - has released a single as part of a compilation to benefit the O+ Festival, "a three-day arts and music fest where artists barter their music, film, and visual art for free health, dental, and other wellness services donated by art-loving local doctors at a pop-up clinic."
Yeah, it's a cover of one of our favorite Talking Heads songs. Done ever so righteously. Download it below and rejoice!
