Kevin Max – Take A Bow (Muse Cover)

Kevin Max is best know from being in the band DC Talk. He has since made many solo albums and is now also working on a graphic novel. Fiefdom Of Angels is going to tell the story of the origins of the Angels and the war that takes place in Heaven. His newest album, Fiefdom Of Angles (Side One) is a soundtrack for this project.

On the album he covers four different artists Real Life, Joy Division, Queen, and Muse. The music is along the lines of chamber I guess, giving a fairly different spin on the songs. The only original song that he has on the album is End Of The Beginning. Although not completely a "Christian" album, I suppose, since most of the covers are not Christian artists. The songs were specifically picked to go along with the storylines of the novel, he also adds spoken word in some of the songs to add to the storyline. Read the rest of this entry

The Blackthorn Project – Reckless

The Blackthorn Project is a non-profit ministry consisting of husband and wife duo, Tim & Laurie Thorton, who minister mainly through music. They are part of the Enter The Worship Circle project and are joined by fellow Enter The Worship Circle artist, Aaron Strumpel, who is the producer for the album, Reckless.

The duo plays many different instruments on the album, violin, harmonica, mandolin, acoustic guitar, and they are joined by Steve Holley on upright bass. This gives the album a sound that covers a handful of different genres throughout their songs, bluegrass, folk, blues, chamber, but with all the different styles represented this is at it's core a worship album.

The Gloomcatcher – Starla Over The Fences

Jessy Ribordy is the frontman of the well known Christian rock band Falling Up. But he also has some other projects that he is doing in his free time. One of those being The River Empires and the other is The Gloomcatcher. The Gloomcatcher just released a new EP called Starla Over The Fences and posted it on NoiseTrade for free download. NoiseTrade labels their music as pop and says that it's for people who also enjoy the bands Doves, Midlake and Fleet Foxes, but I honestly have no idea who those bands are. On their Facebook page they call themselves Chamber. Some of the songs remind be a bit of The Police. Read the rest of this entry
