Remember this catchy, defiantly anti-religious song we brought to your attention in October?
Well now Shelley Segal’s An Atheist Album is available for downlaod and I have taken a listen to it and I am extremely pleased with it and can totally recommend it if you like the video above at all. I am always wary about “message music”, including stuff that tries deliberately to be about atheism rather than just express secular values (as most contemporary popular music does just fine without being atheist.) Occasionally the lyrics are a little bit too much on the nose but for the most part they feel natural rather than forced or pedantic. And musically, it’s just solid pop music even enjoyable to an indie snob like me. Segal can sing, can write a good melody, and can express anti-theistic/pro-atheistic values in a rousing way. I totally recommend that you support a talented young explicitly atheist indie musician who represents us well.
