Alcoholic Faith Mission

January 14, 2010

How many Danish groups are good for your ears?  It’s a question I have asked myself on more than one occasion and of course the answer is there are never enough!

The Alcoholic Faith Mission might have actually started in New York but their sound is Scandinavian through and through- glorious harmonies and varied instrumentation that come together to form a whole that is not only spectacular but becomes an addictive drug on the ears.   An interesting twist to the name and their own words sum it up best:

Suddenly before them was big neon cross. This was a holy congregation called Apostolic Faith Mission – and this was just like booze is to the alcoholic, they thought. A true mission to withstand an empty existence; an Alcoholic Faith Mission.

For those users in Spotify countries click below for their latest album

Alcoholic Faith Mission – 421 Wythe Avenue

For those un-Spotified you can listen to We All Have Our Shortcomings below or you can visit RCRD LBL for the stunning tune Nut In Your Eye and the slower and nicely sampled Time.
