Greydon Square, Ani DiFranco & Steven Wilson

7th Aug 08 (Thu) Leave a comment Go to comments

Atheist rapper Greydon Square comes back strong on his latest album, The CPT Theorem. This is his third album, though his debut (Absolute from 2004) is long out-of-print… so it’s only the 2nd album of his that I am lucky to own. His album The Compton Effect was one of my favorite albums in 2007. This album branches out more beyond the primarily atheist lyrics, more about his life and other topics (to some extent). I’m on my 2nd time through, and I’m diggin’ it. Fav track thus far… “Cubed.” The album is on some internet stores, specifically iTunes. Give it a listen… as well as his last one (The Compton Effect), too…

In non-atheist rap news, Ani DiFranco‘s got a new song posted to her MyScpae page*. The song is called “Smiling Underneath.” I dig its more “band-oriented” sound. Her new (20th studio) album, Red Letter Year, comes out on 9/30/08.

Yep, 20 albums in, what, 18-19 years?!  Crazy… but I dig just about all of ’em.

Regarding Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson, of whom I posted a news bit 2 weeks or so ago, there’s a YouTube trailer for his upcoming solo album, Insurgentes:

Coming up this weekend for me… King’s X and Extreme playing on the same stage. Woot! How’s that for diverse music in one post: atheist rap, hipster folk, progressive rock, the founders of grunge, and a hair band. :)

    Greydon, I am trying to contact you:

    Dear Greydon:

    I am an activist atheist living in the DC suburbs and member of the American Atheists, Atheist Alliance, etc.

    I was watching this show with an African American presentator, I think his name is DL Hughes, not sure. Dan Savage, the reporter, was in his show talking about Gay marriage. Hughes made a comment that he has never heard (or seen) of a black atheist.

    I immediately thought of Neil deGrasse Tysons, and the Beltway Atheists reminded me of you. Maybe you can schedule an interview with him :)?

    Best Regards.

    Greydon might not know about my blog. You are best emailing him via MySpace or something.
