Lost in the inbox: Christians & Lions

I feel like such a bad blogger for not writing about these guys earlier, especially since it looks like they're moving to Falls Church, VA sometime soon. Not to mention they're releasing a single for "Gimme Diction" in August.
Christians & Lions, hailing from Massachusetts, live in the world where stories are told with acoustic guitars and stream-of-consciousness lyrics and storytellers don't want their stories to be rehashed and explained but felt and understood. If none of this makes sense, you need to read more post-modern poetry.
"We're only starting a racket 'cause you've started a racket!"
I scream, "We only want to level this city because
things are so uneven!" But I don't think they can hear me.
