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.

Artist: Me In Motion
Album: Me In Motion
Release Date: March 23, 2010
Label: Centricity
Me In Motion, a Nashville-based alternative rock trio, bring us something new to the table with their debut self-titled album. Featuring some catchy alt. rock mixed with elements of high energy pop, they really play some great music. Containing many, catchy, radio-friendly song, this album does not disappoint.

Starting off with the alt. rock anthem, as well as the current radio single, "Losers" is for anyone who as ever felt alone or essentially like a "loser". It talks about how Jesus loves everyone and is truly an inspirational song. Following is one of the highlights titled "The God I Know", which is about breaking past fear and letting our Faith show, just like Jesus did. "Gotta Be Something" starts off somewhat darker, spreading a message about not falling into the cultural norm and really pursuing being something more.

The album is slowed down a bit with "Seek Justice, Love Mercy", which has a powerful message about God calling us to seek justice and mercy. A very powerful song if I do say so myself. The upbeat tempo picks up again on "Leaving Here Someday". It tells us the important message that we need to live our lives like God wants us too, since we will all leave here someday. "You Never Fail Me" talks about the importance of trusting in God, who never fails us.

"Back To You" is written about the prodigal son, and pleas "I'm coming home, running back to You". The song "Welcome To Your Life" deals with the power of accepting Jesus, and saying goodbye to the ways of the world, and when you does this, you are a new person. "Here In The Middle" is really about living for God while we are here on Earth. The album draws to a close with "You Move Me", a worship song about how God is our inspiration and that He moves us.

Rating: 9/10 Me In Motion bring us an overall outstanding debut album. Featuring a catchy alt. rock sound layered with high energy pop, Me In Motion really praises God. Ranging from a variety of topics, the music has one sole message that God loves us and will never leave or fail us. Me In Motion shows much potential and will be a breakout band in 2010!
