I always have this moment when I get the newest DCB album and I think to myself, “this is okay.” Then a few months later I take a good listen and realize that God is speaking to me through it. There is always a strange layer of brilliance in his songs for me. Shadows has been blowing my mind lately.
I have been (re)listening to Jason Morants music. I used to listen to it and then stopped. Then I moved to NOLA where everyone knows him personally and I didn’t care to be a part of that. As I have been picking it up (especially ABANDON) his arrangements are beautiful. Lyrically, I always find myself thinking, “that’s a strange word/phrase to use in a worship album but it works really well.”
Also check out: Phoenix, Phil Wickham, Paper Route, Gungor…all great music.
