Rick Moody: How to Be a Christian Artist; Danielson Famile: Headz in the Clouds

Angels are terrifying. The appearance of angels always brings with it cataclysmic changes in life and circumstance. ... They appear to tell 'you' that 'you' are about to be impregnated by the power that created all space and time. Or they appear to tell you that the world as you know it is going to end, and that you may perish among the billions.

--Rick Moody "How to Be a Christian Artist: From Within a Homemade Textile Tree, The Danielson Famile Makes Rock Music with All the Awkwardness, Difficulty, and Fervor of Contemporary Faith." (The Believer June/July 2005)

Danielson Famile: Headz in the Clouds (Recommended for the sheer pleasure of the unique experimental weirdness)
