Owl City is Back and New Music On The Way

Owl City which is the project of musician extraordinaire Adam Young, has been dropping hints for several months about future plans. I missed posting this last month but new music is coming soon. I guess there were puzzles to figure out online and some supporters got to hear a tease of new stuff first. I don’t know what it sounds like because I didn’t play the puzzles but this most certainly is exciting news! Are you looking forward to new Owl City music?… Continued →

Rebecca St. James Returns With First New Song in 9 Years

Rebecca St. James, a legend in her own right, is back with her first NEW song in 9 years titled “Battle Is The Lord’s”. Check out the lyric video for this really catchy electronic driven new track. This has more in common with Ellie Goulding and For King & Country than her prior more contemporary elevator pop music. This is really great stuff (in my opinion). The song also features Brandon Lake of Bethel Music. Rebecca St James will release her new EP through Heritage Music soon.… Continued →

REVIEW : A.Duff - One Life

A-Duff is no Calvin Harris; and coming from me, that’s quite a compliment. Well, at least my perception of Calvin Harris – I’ve never really given him a fair listen. In any case, there’s enough cheese-ball EDM in the world to go around. Some of A-Duff’s material could be on the radio (e.g. “God is Real”), but he clearly values creativity. Opening track “Don’t Stop Believing” kicks things off with an optimistic mood and some groovy brass, while “Block Rocking Flammable” reminds me of playing SSX 3 on PS2.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Shane Newville - Roll Out

Remember Syntax Records, the label that put out awesome underground hip-hop like RedCloud, the Night Owls compilations, and Sackcloth Fashion? Well, sometimes the label released music from other genres, too. This included rock bands like Green Olive Tree and Olivia the Band, and on other occasions, electronic music. Today I’d like to share a song from Formless (2007) by Shane Newville, titled “Roll Out.” It is seven minutes of D&B bliss and perfect for an epic high speed car chase, should you find yourself in such a predicament.… Continued →

Kareem Martin - REALITY

Kareem Martin has some new tech house for us to hear. With five minutes of grooves and philosophical excerpts sprinkled overtop, “REALITY” opens up the listener to the topic of epistemology. Silverfilter provides an excellent remix that leans toward the chill side, as well. “REALITY” is available July 30, 2019 on digital retailers. Continued →

Song of the Day: Mortal - Mujo (Uncertainty Mix)

Sometimes the songs that sound least like a band as a whole are their best songs. Mortal’s Nu-En-Jin (2002) is not a particularly calming album. They like to use a lot of distortion, and with the postmodern lyrics and spooky samples, this can make for a claustrophobic listen. However, “Mujo (Uncertainty Mix)” is about as chill as electronica can get, and reminds me of the perfect autumn day. Take a listen and see if the leaves don’t start changing colors.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Andy Hunter - Radiate

You might be familiar with a couple of Andy Hunter’s songs. “Go” and “The Wonders of You” have been featured in video games and movies like SSX 3, Need for Speed Underground, and The Italian Job. However, 2002s Exodus is far from a one-hit wonder; every song on the album is brilliant. Today I’d like to share a personal favourite, “Radiate”. While the song clocks in at over eight minutes, it does not drag on at all. Ultimately, it’s an encouraging meditation on Christ’s life which lives in us and through us.… Continued →

Marshall Marshall - Fall to My Knees

I’m not sure which is harder: adding vegetables to my diet or adding worship songs to my playlists. Both are good for me, but generally speaking I’d prefer just about anything else. Thankfully not all vegetables are bland and neither are all worship songs. And on that note I’ve got a new song from the band Marshall Marshall to share with you today. It’s called “Fall to My Knees” and is streaming now on Apple Music, Spotify, and on YouTube below. Continued →

Digre - Helige Serafim av Sarov

Swedish electronic artist Digre released Helige Serafim av Sarov earlier this month, following up last year’s The Way of a Pilgrim. This dungeon synth EP can be streamed below, and it is available on cassette tape via bandcamp as well. Digre included the following blurb about the release: Holy Seraphim of Sarov was born around 1760 and died in 1833. He is one of the Russian Orthodox Church’s primary spiritual teachers who, after a strictly ascetic life in loneliness and silence, appeared as a prophet and a caregiver.… Continued →

New Moda Spira Album

Moda Spira Launches Campaign for New Album

Moda Spira, the electro-pop project of Latifah Alattas of Page CXVI, has launched a crowdfunding campaign for her new album, due this fall. 2016’s self-titled release saw a hazy mix of synths, passionate vocals, and diverse songwriting. The upcoming album chronicles the unexpected end of her marriage and her journey through pain. Subsequently, we can expect more serious subject matter, though the album (from the brief samples we’ve found) will carry much of the same electronic, pop, and orchestral mix seen on its predecessor.… Continued →

Sareem Poems & Ess Be - Eyedentity (feat. Miles Young)

It’s time to shake off those Monday blues with an encouraging song from Sareem Poems & Ess Be. The blend of hip-hop, electronic, and soul makes “Eyedentity” a standout from an artistic standpoint, though the lyrics only accentuate this. In verse one, focusing around the image of a young black male, Sareem cleverly states: “Don’t use slang, you talk white / Hip hop ain’t the only music that you like / Metallica tees on you just don’t look right.” The song comes from Mind Over Matter, which the duo will release on June 15.… Continued →

REVIEW : Ledger - Ledger EP

When it was announced that Jen Ledger would be releasing her debut solo ep, it filled many with a sense of excitement, rivaled only by an insatiable curiosity as to what we could expect from it. Would it be hard rock, similar in nature to her band Skillet? Pop? Electronic? Rock? The answer is yes…yes, it is. The Ledger EP, which drops this Friday, is a fairly diverse offering that has a little something for everyone. A common thread throughout the EP, is a distorted synth type sound, though there’s keys and drums that compliment it in all the right places.… Continued →

REVIEW : Andy Hunter - Presence, Vol. 2

The piano is, like many instruments, simultaneously loved and loathed. The player will tickle the ivories even when others prefer silence. On Presence, Vol. 2 Andy Hunter’s DJ equipment starts to sound strangely similar to a piano. The instrument is present on just about every song, not to mention other orchestral instruments ranging from a pizzicato to a violin. Of course, the electronics are still here, most pronounced in “Light” which has a mid-tempo drum and bass beat, but this album is just as orchestral as it is electronic.… Continued →
