Welcome to The Welcome Wagon
(Asthmatic Kitty)
Indie pop has avoided songs about Jesus taking the wheel. Enter The Welcome Wagon---the young, hip Brooklyn Presbyterian minister Vito Aiuto and his wife, Monique---which makes pretty sing-along gospels and hymns palatable to those who have avoided church. Produced by Sufjan Stevens, whose influence is striking on the pulpit-worthy arrangement of “Sold! To The Nice Rich Man,” this collection of mostly folked-up covers mixes spirituals with the secular, like The Smiths’ “Half A Person.” It’s about celebrating community and family, not praying for sins, and you don’t have to get up Sunday morning to enjoy.
