'buddhachrist', the latest release from virginia singer/songwriter andy vought, is a cycle of songs about engaging deeply with the teachings of jesus and buddha, in order to seek a more perfect, syncretic personal faith beyond the earthly dogmas and concerns of religious institutions.
the somewhat new-agey folk sounds of the music suit these themes of spiritual exploration and investigation. the production is airy and wide. layers of synth strings, horns and flutes, shimmering electric guitar leads and world percussion elements impart a hazy beauty the lightly psychedelic prog/folk ballads.
