ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Husband and wife duo Dividing the Plunder (Justin & Tasha Golden) are excited about the conversations that their new CD, "The Ordinary" may spark. Far from ordinary, aided by the talents of Steve Mason (Jars of Clay) and Matt Slocum (Sixpence None the Richer), and featuring photography by industry giant Michael Wilson, the CD is a brilliant marriage of high-quality production values and astonishing songwriting. Justin & Tasha find themselves, like so many of their generation, pursuing life, love and identity regardless of where the chase takes them-a journey that's evidenced in nearly every track, from the desperately weary "Blood and Breath," to the gritty "A Little Lower" to the painfully self-aware "Perimeter of Me," and "I'd Rather." It's an aversion to easy answers and a corresponding commitment to honesty that make the lyrics so compelling (we're reminded that there's more mystery than proof) even when reality turns out to be a little more earthy that we'd like to believe. And while there are enough good hooks (e.g. live favorite "The Son that Went Away") to work in your convertible at 80 mph, the record is best experienced alone in the fall when it's raining-this is not background music!
 
Emotionally the album's fulcrum is "Maybe it's Faith," which reflects on the correlation between identity and faith as well as the post-modern inability to label anything with any confidence, however it's the record's title that gives away the heart of who they are and the life they're pursuing--convinced that "on the ordinary, common path of every day are the extraordinary steps we take in grace."
 
Justin and Tasha began making music together in college before they married and "The Ordinary" is the second musical child of their life together. The pairing of Tasha's breathtaking lyrics and voice with Justin's distinct guitar work and Indigo Girls-good ear for vocal harmony is proving to be a match made (literally?) in heaven. Having traveled for over three years, they continue to create art with the intention of excellence and connection. Their alt-folk style is solid ground for working in the relevant vulnerability that seems to simply draw people in and keep them around.
 
The Goldens live in the Greater Cincinnati region of Northern Kentucky (hence the river references) surrounded by fellow pilgrims and working hard at living with wider eyes.

Can't stop listining to it-LOVE IT!
The CD is Awsome!I saw them at Foggertyville Cafe in Florida and had to get the CD. It is my favorite CD right now- I have listened to it sooo many times. :)

Ellery (DtP) is extremely talented
Very very well sung and played music. The first song is by far my favorite. The only downside to this album that I saw was that it was a bit more Christian than I expected. That could have been my own error however. The disc has a very dynamic sound and is great for relaxing in the hammock in the evening. Highly recommended!

A haven of honesty in the midst of a feel-good world.
A haven of honesty in the midst of a feel-good world. The Ordinary has a depth to it so that I have to listen over and over to catch new understandings. I am compelled. And though it's bold and truthful, it is gentle, too. Truth wrapped in grace--what else do we need more?

Honest, fresh music!
This CD gets as much play as any other CD I own. You may not have heard of Dividing the Plunder yet, but see them once and you'll be hooked. The brutal truth in their lyrics is poeticly expressed with beautiful melodies. Check out Perimeter of Me. Awesome stuff. Can't wait for the next offering!

Noelle Peterson

artfully done, harmonies are so fluid and the lyrics are thought provoking and s
Ellery aka Dividing the Plunder offer up an artful album in the ordinary. It leans towards alternative folk in style and if you are truly appreciative of good songwriting, captivating vocals (tasha is amazing)and fluid harmonies you will enjoy this album. It is soulful, sincere and just plain awesome to listen to. I am anxious to hear a full length album from ellery.

I think anyone who ever hears them play will feel the same. The music on this cd captures your attention and doesn't let it go until it's over!!! WOW!!! So awesome it gets two thumbs up forever!!!

Justin and Tasha are THE BEST!!!
After Justin and Tasha came to Central Michigan University and played, i had to buy this CD and its the BEST cd!!! every single song is amazing, and i dont think that the CD has one song on it i skip past when i list to it. if i put the CD in i know i have an hour of listening!! thanks for the great music yall!!

Dave

The acoustic folk sound is addicting!
This CD is amazing! If you like Caedmon's Call, Jars of Clay, or Derek Webb this CD is sure to find a niche in your collection. I can't stop listening to it. I plan to use at least one of the songs, "Thank You," in worship here on campus. Deep lyrics and great acoustic sound. Highly recommended.
