Macklemore - Church (ft. Geologic)
This is a truly beautiful song and one of my all time favorites by Macklemore. As a Jewish Humanist I have an exceptionally strong appreciation for this song. The lyrics are extremely intelligent and well worded, and both MCs portray an ideology that’s unfortunately rarely seen in hip-hop. Both the primary beat and angelic instrumental chorus are phenomenal and really suit the tone of the song. It’s produced by Budo, who is the genius producer for Grieves. He records a lot of live instrument samples for his work, and when I saw him live he beautifully played a wide verity from accordion to dubstep and everything in between. He’s especially good on the sax. Church is my favorite song off of Macklemore’s The Unplanned Mixtape.
