MICHAEL GUNGOR On The Problem With The Christian Music Industry

God

There is a lot of truth in the wise words of Michael Gungor. I’m not a huge fan of a lot of today’s Christian music, and this piece expresses what I couldn’t put into words.

Ode to Summer Music

Just Life and Stuff

Several events have inspired me to write this post. Firstly….

I GOT TICKETS TO GO SEE MUMFORD AND SOOOONNS.

My favorite band of all time! I got the special “email invite,” (since apparently I’m a big enough fan to get an invite or something like that) and bought a few tickets for my friends and I to go in September. I’m a little excited.

SO ANYWAYS, I’ve really gotten into digging up new music. Specifically, folk/indie/rock music, which I adore. So I thought I would share my newer discoveries on here.

1. The Oh Hellos

I got hooked on the Oh Hellos last semester, and they are one of my all-time favorites. If you listen to “Through the Deep, Dark Valley” from start to finish, it tells an intricate story full of metaphors and allusions. They are similar to Of Monsters and Men and their lead male and female vocalists are phenomenal.

Listen: Second Child, Restless Child

2. The Doodads and Don’ts

I can’t get enough of Riverbed and War. They remind me of the Head and the Heart. This band has a pretty small following (note how hipster I am right now) but has some pretty powerful lyrics and strings. Plus, I’m all about those male harmonies.

Listen: Riverbed

3. Josh Garrels

I really started listening to Josh last winter, and he is awesome. He has a very unique sound. His music is very chill, I played it while studying for last semester’s tests. Look up the lyrics to Farther Along. Woah.

Listen: Farther Along

4. Casey Abrams

I vaguely remember him from Idol, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I listened to his album. His voice is crazy different and I love it. His songs remind me of summer.

Listen: Ghosts

5. The Rend Collective Experiment

Gareth Gilkeson has a voice similar to Bear Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE (also one of my favorites) and their sound is a mix between the Oh Hellos and Mumford.

Listen: Come On My Soul

Of course, I have to include something from my favorite band ever: Mumford.

Happy Listening!
