Lauren Daigle - Still Rolling Stones (New Song)

Lauren Daigle is on fire with these new songs off her forthcoming new album “Look Up Child” which is out September 7th. This new song “Still Rolling Stones” can be heard below. Lauren’s voice has never been stronger than it is now and this strength is clearly evident on “Still Rolling Stones”. This song truly captures her talent and showcases an artist on the rise. There is just something entirely unique and original with her new songs. Her voice captures the heart of the song and proves that “worship” doesn’t have to be a mundane, stale, and overrated “Christian” term. Maybe I’m crazy but I swear this new album is going to be one of the biggest things of 2018.

Heart Like War Drop New 5 Song Ep "Start Over"

So Cal melodic punk rock band, Heart Like War, have dropped their brand new 5 song ep “Start Over” which features a whole new lineup and enhanced sound. If you enjoyed their music in the past you’re going to be blown away by the new stuff. The band takes their catchy pop-punk and melodic punk to a whole new level mixing in perfectly placed harmonies, hard charging guitar parts, sing-a-long vocals and a certain rough around the edges take that keeps the punk rock alive and well. “Start Over” takes on a whole new meaning as the band introduces a heavy dose of mental health awareness through songs built on a foundation of hope with a message that you’re never alone and never too far gone to get help. There is an answer to your pain, your struggles, and peace for the journey through this life. This important message needs to resonate with a global audience and especially among Christians who are too ashamed, too embarrassed, and too proud to admit when they need help for very real human afflictions like mental illness. So take a ride on the punk rock train and ready yourself for a message that needs to be heard. You can find “Start Over” on all digital networks.

Forum Blue - A Precious Place

Beautiful songs are one in a million and not so easy to come by regardless of what websites/radio/media throw in your face. Simple songs like this one can be just as powerful as next year’s big chart topping artist. Forum Blue is the new project of Ray Torres of Ray Torres & The Mercy (an artist I wrote about quite a bit over 5 years ago). This song is titled “A Precious Place” and is an honest love letter to his Father who has long since passed. Give this touching song a listen and hug those closest to you.

Sef Idle - At Arm's Length (Hangnail Cover)

I really have to draw attention to one of the most excellent acoustic pop-punk “cover” tracks done in recent memory. Sef Idle has been playing for years fronting and playing guitar for bands like uniSEF and False Idle but has recently come forward as a skilled acoustic-punk singer/songwriter. Sef Idle just released “Someday, Today” back in May and it is a fitting reminder of how raw, natural talent can captivate the listener. It’s not that often that you hear a Christian singer/songwriter in this genre be so overwhelmingly effective with honesty and conviction, letting the music do the talking through words and song. Check out this new cover song of the Hangnail classic “At Arm’s Length” done only the way Sef could do and let the music speak to you. It’s raw, melodic, and still pleasing to the ears. It’s just a real and honest rendition of a song most people probably wouldn’t even be familiar with. If you would like to purchase this song, it is a part of the new compilation “ZAP-O-MATIC No.2” available right here. All sales go to support Skip and his Cancer treatment/recovery.

Introducing: Benjamin Daniel

Benjamin Daniel is a new artist i’d like to introduce you all to. His music beautiful new song “Shaping Season” and purely magnificent in every mention of the word, is now streaming below. Benjamin is currently working on new recordings and this is one of his first to feature. This 5 minute and 30 sec epic song takes the listener on a journey through unshakable emotion, piercing sadness, unmistakable hope, and the redemption that shines through it all. I’m a tough one to be swayed by new solo independent music but there is something truly amazing about this debut track and something awe inspiring. You might remember Benjamin as a contributor here at IVM and an avid listener of great music. Check out the song “Shaping Season”, below.
