Song of the Day: Plankeye - Open House

Amazingly, this song is now 23 years old, and I still feel the same way about it as I did back then.  It’s a fantastic song, and one of the highlights of the Christian alternative rock scene!  Plankeye’s first album (“Spill”) was raw and unrefined, showing hints of Orange County punk.  While their second album “The Spark” had that same raw energy, the songwriting and musical chops had improved, along with just the right amount of production–not too raw, not too slick.  “Open House” is the standout track and has a great message of God’s love and grace even in times of difficulty.  Enjoy!

Summer of 1996 I was in a van on the way to youth camp, and my older cousin who always introduced me to awesome music popped in his mixtape for the summer. Sure enough, “Open House” was on it, and sure enough we went so nuts in that van the first time we listened to it, we almost ran that thing off the road.

Plankeye will always be one of the great Christian rock bands of all time. While Spill showed promise, The Spark was where they truly found their sound. “It’s a Perfect Day Jerome” is another classic on the album.
