Song of the Day: Leaderdogs For The Blind-Restless

One of my all time fave releases, Lemonade, was from a band released by the defunct R.E.X. Music. Forming circa 1993, the 4 band members had changed their name from Leaderdogs to add For The Blind. They blew Christian indie music lovers away with an industrial/hard rock hybrid with iconic songs such as Yellow & Black Attack (no, not the Stryper album!),… Continued →

Song of the Day: Lust Control-Mad At The Girls

So this track is one of my favorite songs of all time. There are a couple different versions out there, but the one off We Are Not Ashamed is my go to.

Song of the Day: Gryp - Against The Crowd

Fresno, Cali nu-metal band Gryp (fronted by educator Curtis Shamlin) is epic imho.

It was different than what was out in 1997 in the Christian realm with staples Ungrateful, Heal Me Back & You Were There.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Sam Ule - Paint

Sam Ule (the moniker of Samuel Schmidt) is in an Indiana-based songwriter fresh off the press with his debut single. “Paint” glistens piano-pop sensibility, the kind of song that feels theatrical and upbeat. Sam Ule draws comparisons to Jason Mraz and Jon Bellion, making use of careful electro-acoustic arrangements that are warm and captivating.… Continued →
