Free Derek Webb

Derek Webb formerly of Caedmon's call has been giving away his album online. It's pretty great, very political and honest.
Get the album

A bunch of kids walked out of his concert when he sang this line:

there are two great lies that i’ve heard:
“the day you eat of the fruit of that tree, you will not surely die”
and that Jesus Christ was a white, middle-class republican

Apparently the truth is polarizing

My favorite is the rich young ruler song:

poverty is so hard to see
when it’s only on your tv and twenty miles across town
where we’re all living so good
that we moved out of Jesus’ neighborhood
where he’s hungry and not feeling so good
from going through our trash
he says, more than just your cash and coin
i want your time, i want your voice
i want the things you just can’t give me
