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: Newsboys
Album: Born Again EP
Release Date: January 2010
Label: Inpop Records

Last year, when Michael Tait replaced Peter Furler of Newsboys, I wondered what would come of them. They answer the question with their new EP, Born Again, a prelude to their new album coming June 8th. The classic Newsboys sound is still contained, but a bit more rock and other elements are thrown in here and there.

Opening with the title track, "Born Again", an energetic rocker which is about overcoming sin and being born again, a great opener. "On Your Knees" keeps the classic Newsboys sound, with a chorus of "When your heart breaks He'll hurt for you, dreams are out of reach He'll pull you through, when you lose hope all you gotta do is get on your knees again". A more surprising song was "When The Boys Light Up", which explains Tait joining the Newsboys.

"I'll Be" is my personal favorite song, with a mellow sound to it, and is about when our world collapses, God will always be there. The closer "One Shot" does have some corny lyrics like "Just like the Twitter that you update". The EP is a good introduction for what we can expect from the Newsboys this year, with their new album releasing this June.
