Oh, Eternity Release Brand New Full Length "I Exist"

You all need to give this new release from rising indie pop-rock band Oh, Eternity a chance. It’s an insanely awesome album filled with unforgettable melodies, vocals you can sing along with, and just enough “pop” where it’s not too overbearing. So many influences shine through on this release but if you were to make comparisons I’d say imagine a combination of Academy Is.., Plain White Ts, Edison Glass, Hearts Like Lions, My Epic, and Walk the Moon. It’s a diverse set of songs and an album I’m sure that many of you would welcome into your stereos. Check it out here. The band have released this album via New Vine Records. Continued →

Young Oceans to Release Epic New Album October 20th

I have been privileged enough that I get to give the new Young Oceans record a listen. The album titled “Suddenly (Or The Nuclear Sunburst of the Truth Revealed)”, is a haunting trip through new wave instrumentation and worship centered musical adventure. The songs which remind me somewhat of a melting of styles, imagine The Killers meets The Decemberists and Death Cab For Cutie meets Cool Hand Luke at an intersection with the passing of Rend Collective. The weirdest comparison I can make is that I even hear a sliver of Chris Isaac. They have a unique take on a tired genre that people have created called “Indie Worship”. The group effectively breathe new life into the purpose and mission so many “Christian” artists try to create which is an atmosphere that causes people to contemplate and reflect on issues of Faith. Young Oceans aren’t afraid to explore new territory with their songs. It’ll be interesting to see if this album sticks and has that staying power so many albums lack. It has a commercial appeal in a non traditional sense. In “Christian” circles this kind of music isn’t fully embraced by radio but in terms of the general marketplace, this kind of music instantly draws people in. The grand scale and epic nature of these songs as a whole make it difficult for me to just pick and choose which ones are “favorites”. I encourage you all to seek out this project when it is released and listen in your special quiet place. Prepare to be captivated. Young Oceans “Suddenly (Or The Nuclear Sunburst of The Truth Revealed” releasing October 20th. Continued →

Originally coming from the So Cal. area and existing from the late 90’s until 2006 or so, Noise Ratchet were a force to reckon with. Frontman Joel Hosler has gone on to do some solo worship work in recent years and the other members with Delta Spirit. Many of us fans have been clamoring for a “return” and could this new twitter account be an answer to that call? Follow them here (or @NoiseRatchet ) and take a listen to the unreleased songs “Tears Now Flow” and “Lonely Love”, below. Continued →

Introducing: Voyagers (Post Hardcore From Washington State)

The spotlight should shine brightly on this new band called Voyagers out of Washington state. The band just released their debut single titled “No Consequence” (through bandcamp for name your price) and it is a refreshing take on the post-hardcore/indie rock genre. Smooth vocals that aren’t off tune, well placed bass, guitars, and percussion. I’m loving the bass heavy sound (at least on my stereo) and I feel these guys have a lot to say through their music and a sound that will keep them ahead of the pack. Please give these guys a listen and prepare yourselves for the sounds of Voyagers. RIYL: Thursday, Sparta, Thrice, Brand New, Jimmy Eat World, and DENS. More news to follow.
