The River Empires...

Some friends of mine are in a band called Falling Up. I'm generally not a fan of hipster Christian rock, but these guys are seriously good.

Anyway, Jessy and Josh - lead vocals and drummer from Falling - are putting together a killer little project called The River Empires. Sort of an ethereal, melancholy, neo-folk group. They sound a little bit like Fleet Foxes, but a cleaner, lonelier sound - and I prefer Jessy's vocals.

Click here and listen to "The Lull of Celeste" - a deeply haunting song. Do yourself a favor and listen to the whole thing.

Another piece they've YouTubed here...

That "Lull of Celeste" is quite spectacular. I especially love the mens choir and bells at the rise toward the end of the song.
