An under-rated song.

I just downloaded the newest album from Josh White who is pastor of The Door of Hope in Portland, Oregon. He previously worked on one of my favorite albums from the Christian music scene, The Followers: Wounded Healer.
The description of the album is as follows:
Pilgrim is singer-songwriter Josh White’s newest incarnation, envisioned and recorded over the past year and a half, with production and mixing help from Josiah Sherman (who has worked previously with Frank Ocean, Motopony, and The Dandy Warhols). Inspired by the soundtrack of his youth, the record draws deeply from White’s love of glam, new wave, and trip-hop. It’s as if Roxy Music merged with New Order, and was remixed by Massive Attack.
If there are parameters for what is appropriate for “sacred music”, this record most definitely breaks that mold. We hope you enjoy this newest release from the Deeper Well Gospel Collective!
Here is a band that played at Iroquois Amphitheater in Louisville tonight. I was unable to go, but have been hearing good things about them and was told their live show was a hit.
Their self-titled LP is out and their new album comes out in June.
Phoenix’s new album is streaming on iTunes. Spin writes:
The French indie-pop masters aren’t officially releasing their fifth studio album, Bankrupt!, until next Tuesday (April 23), but they’re streaming the entire thing right now over at iTunes. As the vendor puts it, “the band purchased what’s believed to be the recording console used for Michael Jack’s Thriller and concocted a delightfully fizzy collection … crisp and clean like glass of S. Pellegrino.” So while the record may not contain any left-field cameos from R&B superstars, it is a wholly refreshing listen — something fans can appreciate whether they’re coming doing from a weekend of festivalling or simply fighting off a case of the Tuesdays.
I linked to this song previously. Here is the video. Theology nerds, this is what is happening in “popular” music right now. Just wanted to let you know so you can talk to that college student.
Here is fun video from Phoenix with good old fashioned Korean love stories. Love these guys. If they ever come through your city make it point to go see them. They put on a great live show.
Great song here from Local Natives called “Wooly Mammoth.”
Although he is famous for another song right now, this one is pretty good.
