Middle American husband and wife team Wayne and Liz are the Devendra Banhart and Joanna Newsome of lo-fi Christian rock. Just when the alt-Christian musical landscape looked bleak following in the wake of WFMU's beloved Danielson, here comes Wayne and Liz. Sounding like a mix between Daniel Johnston and Moe Tucker singing "Jesus" with the Velvet Underground, this is some of the most wonderful outsider lo-fi stuff we've come across. "9-11 Warning" is a 12-minute outsider conspiracy tour-de-force rant and the other tracks are pure, aching beauty. And best of all, they're most likely not even aware of their avant-status. They have released no CDs and there's virtually no information about them -- true outsiders. There's a huge whack of amazing MP3s here. Our advice: download them all!
