This is a fun record, that’s really easy to listen to. It’s not really ground-breaking, just straight-forward indie rock with really warm guitar tones. While there’s not a lot of distinction between the guitar and bass, for some reason that’s not a bad thing, it just adds to the simplicity. Continued →

Update: The band has changed their official website and have posted this same image. Anberlin has been dropping little hints the past few months that are leaving fans guessing. Today they swapped out their profile image on facebook with a new pic that appears to be a photo taped back together. Could this be symbolism? Could this another hint at a reunion? Or is it just a standard photo image swap and/or nothing at all? You debate below and talk about your favorite Anberlin moments from years past. Let’s all stand back in eager anticipation for the next step and hopefully it is the one thing us fans are hoping for…..reunion.

For King & Country have gotten quite creative, with an artistic attempt at creating an engaging music video. It feels as though each one of their new music videos comes across as a sort of mini-movie. It’s quite an impressive undertaking and shows a group with talent that many others lack in their presentations. I think these guys are going to really impact listeners with this new album and if these new songs are any indication of the direction of this new album, count me as number one fan. This album and the new one from Lauren Daigle are highly anticipated new releases for myself. Check out the new music video for the song “Amen” off their forthcoming album – “Burn The Ships”. Pre-order on physical media including vinyl right here.

A new artist to many of you avid music listeners, Collington, has just released a brand new ep titled “In Between”. The 5 song ep featuring heart on the sleeve, thought provoking, indie rock inspired tunes meant to get your head spinning with those kind of sing-a-long songs. This is extremely well done and well played rock n’ roll that would please fans of Band of Horses, Switchfoot, Lifehouse, The Classic Crime, Manchester Orchestra, and Dashboard Confessional. It’s a diverse set of music and comes with my highest recommendation. This is independent music that wears the tag loosely and emerges with a certain amount of unparalleled confidence sure to wipe that sly snicker off every critic exposed to the ep. Yes, it is that good. If a label doesn’t pick up Collington in the next 6 months, then you can say I’m wrong. Stream below via Spotify. Enjoy!
Following up on the “introducing” feature that I brought you a few weeks ago is another new song from indie singer-songwriter, Benjamin Daniel. Check out the track “Inside My Shadow”, below. Follow Benjamin Daniel here. This song will appear as part of a new two part full length titled “Shaping Season” with Vol. 1 out this fall and Vol. 2 out summer 2019.
