One of our favorite records of the past year is Matthew Perryman Jones’ Land of the Living, produced by Cason Cooley. (If you saw the Behold the Lamb of God tour last year you may remember Matthew as one of the special guests.) If you haven’t listened his new record, go with great haste and do so. If you’ve already fallen in love with it, enjoy this short making-of film. If you’re still on the fence, this might be just the push you need.
Duende: Making Matthew Perryman Jones’ Land of the Living

Push taken…buying that record immediately! Awesome video:)
Truth. IT’S SO GOOD. Every time I listen to it I’m discovering a new layer to the music and the incredible lyrics.
Uh, do most recording studios come with a teepee in the backyard? ‘Cuz that’d be great.
One of the best albums….bought it because of the BTLOG tour. I love his single with Mindy Smith also. Love her!
Love this album. Favorite song is definitely “Land of the Living” at the end of the album…. the lyrics, the way it builds… it’s just beautiful and hopeful and true.
“You cannot love in moderation
Dancing with a dead man’s bones
Lay your soul
On the threshing floor”
I mean, wow!
A remarkable work. I have listened to it countless times over the past year. Perhaps my favorite music of all time. I look forward to enjoying for many years to come.
Just wanted to say “Thank You” for posting this Pete (or whoever did).
“Land of the Living” was the CD release party I went to the night my Dad passed away. It was a night of sorrow and the start of healing, all wrapped into one…
“The Angels Were Singing” let me dive right into the grieving process on Day 1…

I am completely in love with Land of the Living. This song brings me a mix of feelings, old feelings that I cant even explain where they come from, as in the beginning of live, in the beginning of everything.
