Current Listenings

The Boxer Rebellion “Union” – This is a fantastic album. There is a consistent sonic quality throughout this entire album that is contagious. While they don’t reinvent the wheel, they play their influences extremely well. Sigur Ros meets Arcade Fire meets Coldplay. You will love this.

Bon Iver “Blood Bank EP” – A rather weird EP. Not much here to return to. I loved his first album but this wanders a bit too much and does not engage.

Kristian Stanfill “Attention EP” – Definitely not the best worship music out there, but Kristian has some great energy. Production is a bit excessive here but I love the rendition of “Faithful”, which we’ve been recently singing at our church.

Kari Jobe “Kari Jobe” – A beautiful voice, great album. Surprised to hear her cover the recent scandal song, “Healer”. Still a great song.

Compassion Art – All the top Christian songwriters together in one room writing songs to raise money for the poorest of the poor. Check it out!

The National “Boxer” – This album is a recent inspiration to me. A sound that I’m not used to hearing. I love the baritone vocal and the crazy drums. A rock sound that does not overly rely on electric guitars.

The Listening “Transmission 1” – Can’t wait for the full length album. Outstanding. Enough said.
