Song of the Day: Poor Bishop Hooper - Psalm 10

If you’ve been following my new release lists closely you may have noticed one artist has been in every list this year. Poor Bishop Hooper is Jesse and Leah Roberts and they’ve been busy working on a new project called EveryPsalm. Over the course of the next three years Poor Bishop Hooper will release a new song inspired by a psalm every week until all 150 psalms have been covered. That’s some dedication! Tomorrow the band will be releasing Psalm 12, but in the meantime I’d like to share one of my favorites from the songs they’ve released so far this year, Psalm 10.… Continued →

Then It Ends Drop Cover Of "It Is Well"

Then It Ends have dropped a cover of the worship tune, “It Is Well” (the version done by Bethel Music). The cover is pretty well done and covers both a bit of clean worshipful ground, while giving it a bit of a hard rock feel as well. Check it out below for yourself and see what you think!  … Continued →

Song of the Day: Further Seems Forever - For All We Know

This wasn’t the typical Further Seems Forever song of unbridled aggression, melodies intertwined into some sort of cosmic explosion of pure joy and instant approval by even your most jaded friend. This song was somewhat of a departure although still incorporating that classic “emo” sound they’d been pegged with for years. Something about this song evokes passion and unrelenting “worship”. Maybe it was intentional or possibly an unintentional after thought but this song leads one into contemplation and self-analyzing, directing you into a heaven’s gaze.… Continued →

Five EPs From 2019 You Can Download for Free

Streaming is great and all but it’s not for everyone. At least that’s the impression I got last time I wrote about albums you can download for free. So I’ve got five more free EPs that released during 2019 you can add to collection. 1. Roelant – The Narrows This 5-song EP is a contender for my best albums/EPs of 2019. Roelant first crossed my radar in 2015 with their album Music to Change the World but failed to making a lasting impression.… Continued →

REVIEW : Humble Feet

Every so often a reviewer decides to review an album purely out of appreciation for the album that they just heard, and in the case of Humble Feet‘s debut album, that certainly holds true. For those unfamiliar with them, Humble Feet is an acoustic husband-wife duo. Their music is highly melodic, orchestral, and deeply rooted in Scripture. In fact, the couple have served as missionaries overseas, and all of the music for their debut was written while in the field.… Continued →

REVIEW : United Harvest Workers Union - United Harvest Workers Union

Although this was released around Easter of 2019, I only recently stumbled across this gem while perusing the Zap Records page on bandcamp. As it turns out, its history is even deeper than, having been recorded and self-released in 2010. Hailing from Pittsburgh, the band has roots in the punk scene in that area, but UHWU is a completely different animal. The union was formed to create “authentic church music . . . devoid of hype.”… Continued →

New Ledger Song - "Completely"

Last year, Jen Ledger (drummer for Skillet) released her debut solo EP, “Ledger” (see my review HERE). At that time, she really seemed to be right on the fence of electronic/pop and rock. Just yesterday, she released a new song titled “Completely” and to me, this one sounds like she’s really moved over to the CCM/poppy side of things. It’s a beautiful, worshipful (is that a word?) tune, celebrating the love of God. Check out the song below and you can also see the story behind it HERE.… Continued →

Most Anticipated Releases of 2019: Rob Jensen

So, 2018 is behind us, another year on the books. After having put together a list of my favorite releases for the year, I decided to try going in the opposite direction and form a list of the albums I’m anticipating most in the coming year. Now, a bit of a heads up before we dig in; I am almost certainly missing some albums here. Some may have escaped my attention, and I’m sure there are more to be announced yet as well.… 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 →
