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.

Of Man

Often around Easter, I wonder why "Easter music" isn't as prevalent as, say, Christmas music. After much thought about this, I was blown away last April when Cool Hand Luke (aka Mark Nicks) released what would be their final album, Of Man. It only took a listen to determine what the album was about: the last days of Jesus' life on the Earth. With over 30 guest contributions to the album, Of Man is certainly something special. The music is cinematic, in an indie rock meets classical sense, and flows strongly along with the lyrics, from the somber, string and piano-laden moments of "The Last Supper" and "The Silver," to the climatic "His Eyes," documenting the crucifixion of Christ, in tense, angsty gang vocals, and even pain-filled screams. The whole album provides for a thought provoking listen, perfect for reflection on the Death and Resurrection of Jesus, and is full of beautiful artistry. Of Man is highly recommended, and can be found on Spotify, iTunes, and AmazonMP3.
