Playing what they term "liturgical post-rock," husband and wife Michael and Lisa Gungor, along with Brad Waller and Josh Harvey, make music that is futuristic yet of-the-moment (think: Sigur Ros meet Sufjan Stevens). Formerly the Michael Gungor Band, the crew is rechristened as Gungor; the name change signifies a more focused, intentional approach. For Beautiful Things, they camped out in a house where they lived, ate and recorded, with Michael at the production helm. The result is a beautiful, ethereal collection of worshipful tracks that you'll want to listen to repeatedly.
