A concept album that feasts on its own allusions, Adam Lipman's From Your Mouth to God's Ears was recorded in a house in Salt Lake City, Utah, under the shadow of the Mormon Temple.  The recording session had two sides to the battle: those who had left the church, and those who had remained a part of the church. Lipman was in the middle of it all; wrestling with the warring factions of belief, compelling them to yield to the songs above all else, as he himself wrestled with God to gain his royal life, demanding the differences to be set aside for the recording session, submitting to nothing but songcraft and his unwavering totalitarian ego. The lyrics reference French director Maurice Pialat's masterpiece, A Nos Amours, Chaucer's The Epic Dandelion, and the sickeningly familiar elements of the common neurotic's daily life. The music, tailored with patience and diligence, sounds both harshly anachronistic and thoroughly, unrelentingly modern. A traditional assortment of organ, piano, drums, guitar, and bass belies the rather unconventional tone and structure of these songs.  Spencer Kingman, who recorded the fantastic Spenking (Marriage Records), plays piano and sings on the record. Ruth Allison Dana, "Beautiful" Johnny, and Isaac Howard all put in playing duties as well.  Lipman has toured with a plethora of different musical acts (Little Wings, The Blow, tropical hip-hop group Quem Quaeritis) and has shared bills with Ponytail, Viking Moses, and Yacht, among others. His previous album Feathered Palm Trees (Folk Tale Records) was the number one most played new album on KDVS, Davis, CA, and in the top ten at KSPC, Claremont, CA.
