Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Welcome To The Masquerade

Artist: Thousand Foot Krutch
Album: Welcome To The Masquerade
Release Date: 9/8/09
Label: Tooth and Nail Records
Do you want a great rock album? Maybe even the best one of 2009? Then Thousand Foot Krutch's new album is exactly that. They return with their much anticipated fifth studio album, entitled Welcome To The Masquerade. It mixes lots of different TFK elements such as some of their original rap-rock, heavy guitars, and even some new heavier vocals not usually heard on TFK albums. The album opens up with the instrumental track "The Invitation" which blends guitars with some piano. The title track follows with hard-hitting guitars and is a good opening full length track for the album. The song "Fire It Up" is a great sports anthem that goes along the lines of "Move" and "Rawkfist". It has also had placements on the Indycar Series and the G.I Joe movie trailer. The first single "Bring Me To Life" features haunting piano and great guitars. Listeners may notice the scream after the first chorus is different then the original single released for free via Feed The Beat. "E For Extinction" has the heavy vocals mentioned above in the background in the chorus. "Watching Over Me" bears resemblance to an FM Static song. It is a song about knowing that God is always there and features these lyrics in the chorus : "I know You're out there, and I know You care, cause I feel You like an angel watching over me". "The Part That Hurts The Most (Is Me)" is a typical TFK rock song that includes some of the piano that is being used on most of the album. "Scream" is an emotional song that states "It's like a mask I don't want to wear anymore" which is referring to disguising past sins and wrongs that we have committed. A similar song that goes along with this theme is "E For Extinction" (mentioned above). That song says that we "camouflage ourselves" from things that we have done. "Look Away" is a nice stripped down acoustic song about asking Jesus to take away our cuts and make them shine. The ballad "Forward Motion", is a radio-ready song, currently being played on Air 1 radio. "Outta Control" is another typical rock song for TFK. "Smack Down" is a hand-clapping, feet-stomping song, that seems like it was made for wrestling, and probably any competition sport. The album ends with "Already Home" which features very beautiful violins in the beginning of the song. It is about being on our knees in front of Jesus confessing how we have sinned, but not running away since we are already home. TFK has definitely become a very mature band with the release of WTTM. It is the most complete TFK album to date, and their best release.
Album Highlights: Fire It Up, E For Extinction , Forward Motion, Look Away, Smack Down, Already Home
Rating: 10/10 This is TFK's best album ever to date. It is also the best rock album of the year!

When I'm With You

Album:When I'm With You EP
Release Date:8/18/09
I was introduced to this band when I heard their single "Sleeping In" on Wow Hits last year and I thought it sounded good. Then I saw they were releasing an acoustic EP and I thought it looked good enough to review! The EP is crafted as a collection of love songs for the band's wives. So, they are really nice, acoustic love songs. The first track, "I Can't Help It", is talking about why someone would want to love, but then ignoring that statement when they found someone to love. The EP follows with "Look What You've Done" which could definitely be a rock song but electric guitars were used. "Stay (In My Arms)" starts off with just piano then the chorus contains acoustic guitar. This is a very great collection of love songs! You can buy a physical copy from the Nevertheless official online store or any digital retailers.
Album Highlights: I Can't Help It, Stay (In My Arms), In Or Out
Rating: 8/10 Nice collection of acoustic love songs!

The Covers EP

Album:The Covers EP
Release Date:8/25/09
Label:Tooth and Nail Records
Washington natives Ruth have returned yet again with a new EP full of covers. Some of the artists they cover span from Buddy Holly to Coldplay. The first track "Everyday", originally by Buddy Holly, is a short song at a play time of only 1:31. It has an acoustic sound and some gang vocals. It is also shorter than the original version. "Dream" by the Everly Brothers follows and has more of the Ruth (folk rock) sound to it. The next song "I'm The One Who Wants To Be With You" is originally by Mr. Big from the 90s. It is probably one of the best songs on the EP. "Give Me One Reason To Stay Here" by Tracy Chapman is another good sounding track that very well could have been an "Anorak" b-side . "Fix You" from Coldplay originally, sounds just as good as the original in my opinion. This is a great collection of covers but is very short.
Album Highlights: I'm The One Who Wants To Be With You (Mr. Big) , Fix You (Coldplay)
Rating: 6/10 The EP includes some good covers, but not enough and is also sort of short.

Album:Again - Single
Release Date:8/25/09
Label:A&M/Octane Records
So,I was very excited when I saw that Flyleaf was releaseing a new single from their new album Momento Mori, releasing October 27th. I then bought the single off Amazon and thought I should review it. It is a great rock song and reminds me some of "All Around Me". Lacey Mosley apparently doesn't scream anymore because of vocal chord troubles. So the song is more of a hard rock/rock track. It sounds like some more recent Skillet and The Letter Black material. It is an overall good track and is a great intro to Momento Mori. The song is being added to Rock,Active Rock, and Alternative stations soon. Please keep an ear open for this song on the radio and remember, Momento Mori is coming October 27th!

Artist:The Glorious Unseen
Album:The Hope That Lies In You
Release Date:8/25/09
Label:BEC Recordings
The Glorious Unseen is a worship band from Nashville, Tennessee. I found out about this band when I download their Cries Of The Broken EP off of Noisetrade. Then I saw that they were coming out with a new album and I was very excited. They mix alternative rock with worship music and out of it comes a masterpiece. The first song "All Around" is a great song about when everything in the world is going wrong, Jesus is our comfort and he loves us when we're weak. The third track, a cover of John Mark McMillan's "How He Loves" is a very memorable one. It is a great song and sounds great with TGU singing it. The albums first single "Heavyhearted" is a song that is very inspiring. It's chorus is great: "And when You take me as I am, it's like the sunlight gracing the land, and when I feel heavy hearted, please take me as I am". The self-titled track is great and ends in just singing Hallelujah, which is also heard on "Awakening". The album closer "Sweet, Sweet Sound" is a prayer asking God to come again. This is definitely my favorite worship album ever, and believe me, I have heard a lot of worship music over the years . This is a great album for fans of worship and those who don't like worship alike. This is the best album I have heard in 09!
Album Highlights:All Around, How He Loves, Heavyhearted, The Hope That Lies In You, Sweet Sweet Sound
Rating: 10/10 This is definitely the best album that I have heard in 09! Please go pick this up!
Abandon Kansas - We're All Going Somewhere EP

Artist: Abandon Kansas
Album: We're All Going Somewhere EP
Release Date: 9/8/09
Label: Gotee Records
Are you looking for some great indie rock? Than check out Abandon Kansas, the newest addition to the Gotee Records roster! As their name says, they are a band from Kansas. They sound almost like a mix of House Of Heroes and Relient k with different vocals and they are indie rock. They do have more of a unique sound from other indie bands. Their new album was produced by Mark Lee Townsend who actually produced Relient k and House Of Heroes. I have even noticed the lead singer's voice to sound like Jon Foreman of Switchfoot at times. So,as you can tell, this band has a very unique sound. The albums second track "I Wonder If It's Me" is a song about everyone understanding things differently. The pre-chorus says "the small town kids miss the city,the city kids miss the trees,but how can we get this backwards when it's only a change of scenery". The last song "Close Your Eyes" is about knowing that God is always there even when you can't see him. This album is up for pre-order from Zambooie. Please give a listen to the newest member of the Gotee Records family!
Album Highlights: I Wonder If It's Me, Make Believe, Close Your Eyes
Rating: 9/10 Great new addition to the Gotee Records roster!

Honest Love

Album: The Honest Love
Release Date: 9/1/09
Label:Facedown/Dreamt Music
Just to give you a profile of Abel,they are a 3-piece indie rock band from Poughkeepsie, New York. They are really an indie rock band but their music is really indie rock worship,sort of like The Glorious Unseen but more of a rock band. They have a great sound that is unique to them. They are great for people who don't like worship that much. The album focuses on many spiritual themes such as finding the honest love of Jesus Christ and how we are not perfect like Him. The songs on this album have very good messages and some good ones include "My Melody","The World Sings",and the title track. I would definitely look into this band and check out the EP and buy it when it comes out. All I can say is that this sounds like another contender for album of the year!
Album Highlights:The Honest Love, My Melody, The World Sings
Rating:8/10 I think this is honestly one of the best albums that I have heard so far this year!

The Real Devastation <span class=

Artist: A Current Affair
Album: The Real Devastation
Release Date: August 2009
Label: Independent

So, I had heard of A current Affair from Effect Radio when they started playing The Real Devastation. Once I heard that song,I knew this band was something special. So,this 5-track rock disc is a great example of an album of the year contender. The disc starts of with the hard hitting track "Life Of Me". The next track,"Explorer" is about someone searching to find God and God is speaking to them. "The Thief" is a song about someone who broke a girl's heart. The albums title track is probably the best song and the current radio single being played at RadioU and Effect Radio. The album finishes off with the softer track named "The Search". This is a great album and was a great pleasure to listen to and too review. I would get this off iTunes,AmazonMP3, or for a physical copy,A Current Affair's web store.

Album Highlights: Life Of Me, Explorer, The Real Devastation
Rating: 9.5/10 One of my favorite rock albums of the year!

All We Need Is Sound EP

Artist:Satellites and Sirens
Album:All We Need Is Sound EP
Release Date:8/4/09
Label:Word Records
Satellites and Sirens is a new synth-driven rock band on Word Records. Their new EP,All We Need Is Sound,is a great introduction to their full-length record coming out in early 2010. The EP starts off with Sateillites and Sirens first radio single,"Take Me Back" which is pretty much a prayer. The EP follows with the synth track "Light The Night" which has some great bass on the intro and in many parts of the song. The last track is a great example of Sats and Sirens style of music(synth-driven rock) and is the title track for the EP. This EP is short,but that is what EPs are supposed to be. This is a great intro to Satellites and Sirens and I would ighly recomend picking this up of iTunes or AmazonMP3!
Album Highlights: All songs
Rating:9/10 Keep a listen out for Take Me Back going for adds at CHR and AC radio soon!
Between The Trees - Spain

Artist:Between The Trees
Release Date:8/11/09
Label:Bonded Records
So,I was introduced to Between The Trees a few months ago when I heard the song "We Can Try". So,I looked more into the band,listened to some more tracks,than I thought this band was great. So,the album mixes some more upbeat tracks with slower,acoustic tracks.The album's first two songs "We Can Try" and "Spain" are both nice upbeat tracks that are also both radio singles. They are probably the best tracks on the album or maybe they're just my favorites. The rest of the album is a nice collection indie acoustic love songs. Some significant ones are "Story Of A Boy" and "Miss You". A more upbeat song that is named "Move" has some great guitars. This is a definite great overall album and I would recommend picking up the CD or a few songs from it,especially Spain and We Can Try.
Album Highlights:We Can Try, Spain, Story Of A Boy, Move
Rating:8/10 Great album with lots of uplifting love songs.
Pray for MercyMe

I know this has nothing to do with a review but just wanted to let people know what happened and that your prayer would be greatly appreciated. As for the band they have been through so much and this just piles up the more death they have experienced. God will keep everyone strong. My sympathy is with the band and the families/fans affected by this

FORT WAYNE, Ind. The Christian rock band MercyMe canceled a show Saturday night at Six Flags St. Louis after its tour bus collided with a car in northeastern Indiana, killing two passengers in the car and the pregnant car driver’s unborn baby. No one in the band was injured. A news story on the crash and a photo of the damaged bus were posted on the band’s site. "Please join us in praying for the families of the car that hit our bus last night," the band said in a posting on its Web site. "Our hearts break for their families." Fort Wayne police Officer Liza Thomas said witnesses told police the bus was going through a green light about 1:15 a.m. Saturday when the car made a left turn in front of it. The band from the Dallas area had been in Fort Wayne for a Friday night show. No injuries were reported on the bus, Thomas said. Two passengers in the car, a male and female, were pronounced dead. The car’s driver was in her third trimester of pregnancy and the baby died. The driver was hospitalized Saturday in critical condition, she said. Police have not disclosed the names of the people involved the crash. Six Flags, in Eureka, said MercyMe’s show had been rescheduled for Sept. 5. All concert tickets will be honored for the new date, it said.

The Effects of Fashion and Prayer
Artist:Sent By Ravens
Album:The Effects Of Fashion And Prayer
Release Date:July 6,2008
So,the other day,I stumbled upon this band while looking on Wikipedia at Tooth and Nail's page and saw that they had signed this band. The T+N's site put up an article about signing this band. And as a big Tooth and Nail fan and supporter, and knew that I should give fans something to look forward to,so I am doing Sent By Ravens' independent record. So, Sent By Ravens is a rock/progressive band that was put together completely last year. They have also been referred to as "heavy" by others. So this band sounded great and I wanted to check them out. Then I contacted their management and got the album. The first track "Trailer Vs. Tornado" is a great track that features the rumored "heaviness". About 3/4 of the way through on almost every tack,there is a quick breakdown that sounds like a combination of Andrew Schwab's heaviness from Picket Fence Cartel and Cody Bonnette's raw yelling from As Cities Burn's 2nd album. So,it is not hardcore screaming, but it is loud,doubtless. The next track "This Awakening" is a great track about wanting in spiritual terms,to come back to life. After that features 2 more songs that follow the same style. track 5 is named "I Am" and is more speaking with music and is pretty neat. The last track "The Best In Me" features some female vocals and is softer than the other songs on the album. This is a great album and I would recommend picking it up off AmazonMP3 or iTunes.
Album Highlights:This Awakening,Trailer Vs. Tornado,The Best In Me The first 2 tracks from the album will be featured on their new album coming out this winter!
Rating:9.5/10 This is a very promising band that fits in perfectly with Tooth and Nail and will have a big future ahead of them!
Rock the River - St. Louis

Skillet at Rock the River (I didn't take the picture)

August 2nd, 2009 I attended one of the greatest concerts of my life: Rock the River

The event took place directly under the Gateway Arch right by the Mississippi River.

Admission was free!

The show opened up first with Canton Jones who got the crowd pumped and ready for RED.

RED was amazing live, the guy can sing really good but one of the interesting things about the band is that I had no idea the guy playing bass was also the guy who does all the screaming.

Their set list included: Fight Inside, Confession (What's Inside My Head), Let Go, Death of Me, Already Over and Breathe Into Me.

Next up on the performance list was Lecrae but I didn't stay and listen to him because I was too busy trying to manuver through the crowd to get to the merchandise tent where I bought my Red shirt, Skillet poster and pre-ordered Awake for $9.

I also missed Franklin Graham (Billy Graham's son) speak but from what I head it was pretty incredible.

After I got back to my spot Hawk Nelson came on and the place was jumping and dancing around having a good time. Jason Dunn got rid of the mohawk and now has long hair again back in the days of Letters to President and Smile, It's the End of the World.

Their set list was clever considering they used songs from every single one of their albums including Live Life Loud.

They performed Bring 'Em Out to start with followed by The Show, You Have What I Need, Friend Like That, The Meaning of Life, California, Let's Dance and Live Life Loud.

Afterwards, there was yet another Franklin Graham altar call for people to come down and accept Christ into their lives.

Kirk Franklin was on stage next but I missed him to go get some food

The emcee talked and then he introduced Skillet, the place lit up and started going crazy.

Skillet started off by having a robotic voice give an intro that said "Skillet welcomes you to the show, Skillet would like to remind their audience that they are not responsible for lost voices, whiplash from neck, or a rocked off face"

As soon as that stopped Ben Kasica, Korey Cooper and Jen Ledger started rocking out and the crowd went nuts. Then when John Cooper walked out with his bass the madness began. Korey and Ben were on levitating platforms (as seen in the picture) and were going up and up as they continued to play. Finally, the music began opening with Whispers In the Dark followed by The Older I Get which was funny because the band's equipment was not working right so when Korey started to play the intro to the song the guitar went dead and she quickly fixed it while John started singing la-la-la-la-la-la la-la la-la-la-la-la in the style of the song. They managed to play it but then had to stall so they could look at the equipment and get it fixed. John started talking to the crowd and said "Jesus is greater thank rock 'n roll, Jesus is greater that music, he is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us" The band started playing again with Comatose where the Asian instrumentalists got out on the platforms and were playing. The Last Night came on followed by Hero and Rebirthing then closed out the show with Savior. My friends were disappointed they didn't play Monster but we decided that we are going to see a Skillet headlined show to hear over an hour of their stuff. There was so much head banging, raising fists in the air and just rocking out, my head and throat still hurt from that amazing show. Skillet was my favorite that day.

Later on at night Flyleaf finally came on stage and they definately won the loudest band of the day award. Lacey is a great singer and her scream are good but we just couldn't hear what she was saying. They played Fully Alive, I'm So Sick, All Around Me and some new stuff. My group left as they were playing Cassie and Breathe Today but it was still an awesome show!

Rock the River - St. Louis was AMAZING!

Rootdown - Summer Of Love (EP)

Album:Summer Of Love EP
Release Date:June 17 (digital) /July 31 (physical)
Label:Beach Ave Records
So,what caught my attention from this band was not only that it was Paul Wright's side project,but that the seemed to be the only Christian reggae band that there is (I may be wrong though). Also,I saw that they were playing a song from them on my radio station,Air 1. So here is the review.It is an EP,so it only has 5 tracks,the typical number of tracks on a physical ep. Another thing about the album is that it is a collection of songs fit for summer and love (hence the title). The first track is a nice relaxing song called "Sweet Love" and is talking about how people need love in their lives. The next track,"Baby Come Back" is a track about a broken relationship and basically telling the person to come back. "Taking Over Me" is their new single on Air 1 that has a story behind it. It is also available for free download and you can read the story at The track after this is "Burrito Boy" which is a love song that also involves loving Mexican food.Also,some of the song is sung in Spanish which is pretty cool. The last track,"Summertime In The City" ,well,it's pretty self-explanatory from the title. First time I've ever listened to this kind of music,but I liked it .
Album Highlights:Taking Over Me, Sweet Love, Burrito Boy
Rating:7.5/10 A great album for summer that might not be so great other than in summer,but otherwise, it's an overall good album.

Artist: Take It Back!
Album: Rumors Of Revolt EP
Release Date: 8/18/09
Label: Facedown Records
So,this release looked very interesting to me, so I emailed Facedown for it.I was not expecting much, since Take It Back! is really not my style. However,I had listened some to a track and it got me interested. The first track is named "New Empires" and is about some bad things in our modern world,such as babies not having a father and some other problems.In the end,the singer is saying he will be the change for the modern problems. The next 2 tracks are great punk rock tracks and completely eliminate any heavier things from the first song.Suprisingly,the song "American Fantasy" reminds me of Switchfoot's "American Dream" a little bit and not just because of the title.It may just be me however. After that,there are two cover tracks.The fisrt,"Rise Above" is about rising above all your trouble doubtless of how bad it is. The last track was by a more recent band who is actually on Facedown Records named No Innocent Victim called "To Burn Again". It repeatedly says "give me the fire,to burn in me again" obviously asking Christ to burn inside of someone who has excepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
Album Highlights: Pretty much the whole album,not anything that i disliked.
Rating: 8.5/10 This was a great album! One of the best I've heard this year! This isn't even my style of music, but I love it! Pick this album up off the Facedown Merch Store or Amazon before it sells out!

Artist:Owl City
Album:Ocean Eyes
Release Date:7/28/09
Label:Universal Republic
So,I must say,I am not one for electronic bands.But when I saw that Owl City had gone on tour with Relient k,I knew that there was something special about this band.Well first off,Owl City is really just one guy named Adam Young,but however,there are many guests that play an instrument or sing on the record. The album starts off with "Cave In" and talks about riding a 4-wheeler at some point and at another,wearing a helmet so that his head doesn't cave in. The next song,titled "The Bird and The Worm", is a nice acoustic love song.The next track is a fun song called "Hello Seattle",which is basically about being in or around Seattle. A few tracks later is another great acoustic love song named "The Saltwater Room".It is a duet between Young and a female singer. The song "Dental Care" is surprisingly about going to the dentist!I know that Matt Thiessen did some work on the album,but part of "Dental Care" reminds me of Relient k's "Deathbed" somehow. The next song,"Meteor Shower" includes these lyrics "I am not my own,I have been made new,please don't let me go,I desperately need You". This and also "Tidal Wave" both have more spiritual messages to them. The album's first single "Fireflies" may have to do with Adam Young's insomnia.The last track I will review is "Vanilla Twilight",another love song about wishing that someone was there with you when you feel lonely. Overall,this was a great album.
Album Highlights:The Bird and The Worm,Hello Seattle,Meteor Shower,Fireflies,Tidal Wave
Rating:8/10 Even though this was a great record,I have still not found a perfect album this year yet and am still waiting,but I would recommend picking this up at the store, iTunes or AmazonMP3.

Because there are so many tracks on Summer Slam Vol.3,I am only going to review the Come and Live! tracks because I have to do an Owl City review soon.Also,the Showbread Fear Of God album review may have to wait til next week unfortunately because of some setbacks.However,I will be doing a review of Take It Backs! Rumors Of revolt EP tomorrow courtesy of Facedown Records. Also,the site may be getting redesigned this week,so stay tuned!

Artist: Anchor and Braille
Album: Felt
Release Date: 8/4/09
Label: Wood Water
So first off,if you don't know,Anchor and Braille is Stephen Christian from Anberlin's side project.Aaron Marsh from Copeland also played a pretty big role in helping to produce the album and also does some guest vocals. Also,please don't expect an Anberlin-like album or anything close when buying this or just listening to it.These songs are songs that Anberlin would never play,they are far to personal. But that doesn't make it bad. These are Stephen Christian's own personal songs and they are very unique. The first song "Rust" according to Stephen,is about a family member who was in the hospital. The next song,the albums first "single" is "Like Steps In A Dance".It is another great example of Anchor and Braille's unique sound. Another track that caught my attention was "Summer Tongues" which is where Aaron Marsh comes in.The beginning of the song,many other parts,and the very end sound just like a Copeland song. The next track "Calm,Calm Yourself" is a nice,simple piano driven love song. The track also,how do I put this,has a beautiful string section toward the very end of the song. "Wedding/Funeral" is a sad song about someone who died and the onlooker remembered that they were dressed beautifully at their wedding and also ,at their viewing. It is a very sad song. The rest of the album ends out with more good tacks,but out of out of the 4 tracks,I think the best one is "Sleep.When We Die".I got this song as a download earlier in the year from a Faceless International free sampler. One noticeable thing is that Stephen's voice gets very high in some songs,unlike in Anberlin. Also,the album definitely has a huge Copeland sound to it,and Aaron Marsh also does some great guest vocals.If you like Copeland or are a fan of softer indie stuff,I would highly recommend that you pick this album up.
Album Highlights: Like Steps In A Dance, Summer Tongues,Sleep.When We Die,Sing Out,Sheet Music
Rating: 8.5/10 This is definitely one of the best albums I have heard all year!Go pick it up and support Anchor and Braille!

Fix You

Album:Fix You - Single (from The Covers EP)
Release Date:7/28/09
Label:Tooth and Nail Records
So when reviewing covers,it is always a good idea to listen to the original version, which in this case,the song is by Coldplay.The song is very touching and has a good message to it. Some people have said this was not a good cover and that Coldplay's was a lot better.However,I think I like Ruth's better because I like the nice soothing guitars,the smooth vocals,and the indie folk-rock tone to it. I am just going to take a stand and,no offense Coldplay,say Ruth sings it better. So,I would reccomend picking up the single or waiting for the full release Covers EP Aug. 25th.
Rating: 8/10 I think this is better than Coldplay's and if it's better than Coldplay,it deserves a high rating.
