Theological Mashup of The Civil Wars and Kierkegaard
The mashup is everywhere. This practice of taking two distinct songs and winding them together has become the thing to do on the internet. I personally have no musical ability, so any mashing I would do would inevitable destroy the parts and leave nothing worth hearing. But I have become addicted to the indie folk band The Civil Wars’ new album (Barton Hollow) not only for its smooth vocals and catchy hooks, but also for its lyrical depth, it’s probing of the human condition and the contradictions of love.
