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. … Continued →

Fielding the project of Eric Balmer (Ex-Plankeye) and his wife, Beth, has just released a brand new full length titled “Rags of Light”. The album is full of rich instrumentation, experimentation, and Eric’s soothing, uplifting voice. Songs range from the Introspective and spiritual to the honest words of someone seeking meaning in this world. Full of soaring choruses and subtle words all put to the alluring sounds of Fielding’s music. This is a perfect continuation of the past Fielding material but turned up a notch.… Continued →

Today’s Video Flashback is from the band Plankeye and their song “B.C.” off the “Commonwealth” album (1996 Tooth & Nail). “Commonwealth” is still my favorite Plankeye album. Their songwriting was just so great and every song from the Scott Silletta days is a gem. Scott Silletta (Lead Vocals/Guitar) played on 4 Plankeye albums before quitting shortly after the release of their 1997 album “The One and Only”. While “Goodbye” was a beautiful song, not much else matches the intensity and melody that Scott helped capture on the 4 early Plankeye albums.… Continued →
