Saint Valleta (The Beautiful Mistake, Stranger Kings) - Scars (New Song)

Saint Valleta which is the new project from Josh H. of The Beautiful Mistake and Stranger Kings (among many other bands and projects), has just released a new song titled “Scars”. It follows up that post-hardcore/emo/rock sound perfectly and is not only a trip through nostalgia but a modern take on rock n roll with a moody introspective vibe. Like Thursday meets Glassjaw, Anberlin, and Armor For Sleep. Check out “Scars”, below and make sure to add to your playlists.… Continued →

We Came as Romans - Golden (Official Music Video)

I had to post this. It’s a deeply emotional song and has a connecting message that is sure to reach those who are struggling emotionally, and mentally. As you know, the band tragically lost frontman, Kyle Pavone, four years ago. We Came as Romans just released a new song titled “Golden” which is centered around the loss of their bandmate. Their new album “Darkbloom” is out October 14th. Those who are struggling with mental health issues, there is a way out, there is hope.… Continued →

Check Out Jacob James Wilton (FFO Benjamin Daniel, Allen Odell, Starflyer 59)

Jacob James Wilton is one of the more unique entries into modern Christian music, taking an alt-country and self-described “prairie pop” approach toward songwriting. There’s a certain sobriety to these songs, and there’s even some nostalgia in the form of alt-roc influence. His full album is still forthcoming, but you can check out his first three singles below. Personally, I find this to be one of the more adventurous angles of indie and I hope you enjoy what you hear.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Torn in Two - Plastic Dreams for Shining Rings

There was a lot of hype surrounding this band when they were first signed by Facedown Records, in large part based on the fact they had three vocalists. While the hype, and sadly also the band, were short-lived (they only released one full-length and one 3-way split album), they definitely generated a healthy buzz in their short existence. And for good reason too. Soli Deo Gloria (roughly translated as “to the glory of God alone”) dropped in 2001, and stylistically the album shows its age.… Continued →

Song of the Day: The Supertones - Little Man

So what is the actual name of this band? The Supertones, Supertones, OC Supertones! Anyways, they got the whole Christian industry into 3rd wave ska music. The other 2 Five Iron Frenzy & The Insyderz caught on right afterwards if I remember correctly. My acquaintance from high school was actually trying to bring them to Bloomington/Normal Illinois, but from what I gather they got stuck in a snow storm. Pretty sure this was circa 1995. Anyways, the bass lead is fun to play & not that difficult if you want to learn it.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Fold Zandura - King Planet vs WenCarla

So I saw this band when they first changed their name to FZ from Mortal. I talked to I think Jerome before the show with Bloomsday & asked for what I think was Kingflux & they ended up playing it for me. Yah! Anyways fast forward all these years later & Jerome has been working with Switchfoot & then AI find out they might come out with more music? Sounds good to me. Oh yeah, & remember YHWH is still in control of king planet!… Continued →

Introducing: ISLY

I would like to take a moment to introduce our readers to a new indie pop group called “ISLY”. I found them through TikTok and the music they create is more in line with The Weeknd, Twenty One Pilots, and Owl City than some of the more heavier aspects of the music scene. Their music and message is much needed in today’s dark, cynical, and often times bleak sub-culture that seems to drive people’s interests. The music has an upbeat feel and the beats themselves are an attractive sound that’ll draw you in.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Bloodgood - I Wanna Live In Your Heart

The passing of Michael Bloodgood still hits hard with all of us who remember his music and have followed his health on social media. This SOTD was actually my 2nd intro to them. My first being Battle of the Flesh off one of the Intense Records comps I found at a Hobby Lobby almost 30 years ago! I fell in love with this ballad & I still about the lyrics to this day how much Jesus still loves us.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Den S - New Space

Dennis Childers has deep connections to the Christian indie scene, going all the way back to the 1980s and Flock 14, the most excellent new wave band he played in at the time. However, when Flock 14 morphed into World Theatre, Dennis went underground/disappeared and not much was heard from him musically save for a few album credits here and there. Nate from Destroy Nate Allen/Good Saint Nathanael got in touch this week to let me know that Dennis had a new album dropping–literally just 2 days ago.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Matt Papa - One Thing

This worship artist is one I interviewed back in college. He gave me this cd & I was hooked-every single song resonated with me & not many worship artists have, Anyways Check the whole album & these mission lyrics from Phil 1:20, Psalm 145:13, 46:10 which should be our anthem.  Jesus-nuff said For Erick there was one thing, one thing and nothing more That moved his growing family to the slums of Bangalore For Becca there was one thing, one thing that kept her home She gave up her career to take an orphan in her arms What would make a man so bold Make a woman lay her own life down Only one thing Jesus Christ, Magnified All over the world Lifted High, glorified All over the world Only One thing Is Worth everything Jesus Christ, Magnified All over the world For David there was one thing he gave his life to preach His church in China meets in secret growing every week For Ruby there was one thing that kept her in the choir It hurt to stand at 90 but she worshipped with a smile What would make a man so bold Make a woman lay her own life down only one thing For us now there is one thing A choice that we all have Living for our kingdoms or the only one that lasts..… Continued →

Song of the Day: Tree63 - 101

South African Tree 63 delivered a lot of music mostly through the AC format, but they also had some rockier tunes. They started in 1996 under “Tree” but the name was taken already by others. They added 63 based on Psalms 63, a reference to their second LP. Anyways hope you like this one as much as I have over the years. Also, vocalist John Ellis eventually struck on his own. Check him out as his solo stuff is decent also.… Continued →

GratitudeTX Are a Band To Watch

A fairly new band on the scene goes by the name of GratitudeTX, have just released their new EP “Deathless Voices” back in April of this year. This is self-described “Spirit Filled Hardcore” band is exactly the kind of HEAVY music many of you are looking for without needing knee braces and a walker. These guys are the real deal and their sound is as ferocious as it is passionate and without a doubt – a band on a mission to spread hope.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Tourniquet - Tears of Korah

Many fitting tributes have been written about the one and only, the mighty drummer/musician/song-writer/animal rights activist Ted Kirkpatrick. So much has been said about his life, his music, and his impact that I can’t really add much here. Ted’s incredible musicianship is impossible to overstate. He was revered even by the most ardent anti-religion folks, for his musicality alone, including folks like King Diamond and Marty Friedman. While I never got to meet Ted, I did have the chance to see Tourniquet live once.… Continued →
