I'm getting really into the music of Sufjan Stevens --- not only does this guy's music weave in spiritual themes, his soft voice and ecclectic instruments give one the feeling of being embraced. Sojourner's Magazine recently did a story about the rising movement of "post-punk, justice-seeking, Jesus-following musicians" of which Sufjan Stevens is considered part. Tikkun has a review of Sufjan's work, here.
For a taste of Sufjan Stevens sound, please check out a tribute piece that he did and that was featured on NPR.
