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.

That Was Then, This Is Now

Artist: Chasen
Album: That Was Then, This Is Now
Release Date: 3/9/10
Label: INO Records

That Was Then, This Is Now. A statement made by Chasen with the release of their sophomore release. Playing pop rock that draws similarities to Run Kid Run and at times even Steven Curtis Chapman, Chasen have a good mix of music.

Songs like "On and On" are full of hope and life, while having "hit single" written all over them. The opener "Castaway" has more of a rock feel to it, being a plea to God to save us when we're separated from Him. "Leave You Alone" has some of the catchiest hooks off the album, talking about the grace and redemption that we have in Jesus' name. Towards the end of the album comes "Slow Down," which has influence from many CCM artists, but still comes out nicely to close the album.

Rating: 7/10 Chasen has talent that shows in That Was Then, This Is Now. Influences from artists such as Run Kid Run show, making the album a good pop rock effort.
