Idris Goodwin

We’re fans of the Colorado based indie-rapper and playwright Idris Goodwin. On his latest album Rhyming While Black, he raps about racism and the harassment and killing of black Americans by police. As we mourn the victims of the Charleston church shooting, listen to the tracks “Get Over it” and “Down” and be inspired. Buy the album here.

The indie band, Roman Candle, is a family affair. Skip and Logan Matheny  are brothers, and Skip’s wife Timshel is the third member of the group.  (On the road, Timshel and Skip even bring their two kids along.) We like their sound, and how their Catholicism subtly informs their songwriting. Read more and hear a song after the jump:

We love the gospel themes in his music and his one of a kind genre bending sound. Listen to “Panning for Gold” on which he sings, “I saw God by the river, panning for gold” after the jump:
