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.

The Catalyst EP

Artist: The Wrecking
Album: The Catalyst EP
Release Date: 8/18/09
Label: Chosen Records
The Wrecking are a pop/rock band out of Portland, Maine. They released an EP over the summer to preview their new full length album releasing early next year. The theme of the EP seems to be about standing out and being a light in the world. The opening track, also the current radio single, "Sound Of The Resistance" is a pop/rock song about how we need to love others. It describes love as a "resistance". The music video for it is pretty self-explanatory on the message of the song and you might wanna check that out. The acoustics on "Breathe" and "Love Is Here" actually seem to give the songs potential and meaning, they really fit perfectly. "Reason" is actually more of a rocker and is about how we need God to live and that he is the reason that we are alive. The song "Angels" actually has some electronic beats featured and gives it a good sound. The EP closer, "Our Feet Don't Touch The Ground", was actually voted to be featured in the movie "New Moon" but apparently never made the cut for some reason. However, it is a great alternative song and closes off the EP nicely.
Album Highlights: Sound Of The Resistance, Love Is Here, Our Feet Don't Touch The Ground
Rating: 7/10 A pretty interesting sound for the EP, I'm excited to hear the full length releasing early 2010!

  1. Hey I'm a personal friend of Doug, Darell, Joe, and Karl, and I'm pretty sure that the reason that "Our feet don't Touch the Ground" didn't end up in the movie is because they turned down the offer.
