Household – With Or Without

I'm so happy Household has signed with Blood and Ink Records and is hitting the tour grind hard. This melodic hardcore band is equal portions faith, grit, intensity, and vulnerability. Household is pretty young, which is great news. Josh Gilbert fronts the chaos and definitely has no qualms about ...

Zak and Sara – Heirloom

Zak and Sara Strout, a husband and wife worship duo who pastor the music end of things at a church in Maine, have created a labor of love in Heirloom. A labor of love squarely directed above - a seamless overlap of genuine worship and exploration of realms of music the two of them are passionate about. ...

Ah shoot!) Anyway, perhaps I ought to insert a little disclaimer here - if at any point it sounds like I'm ...

Ryan Getz recommends:  Awê - What do you get when you combine Sigur Ros with a hint of metal? Something like this musical collaboration between friends Stepthen Scheidell and Subaas Gurung, I'd imagine. The compositions are just gorgeous. I'd say they can hold their own against some of their more ...

Sink your teeth into these tunes

Pianos Become the Teeth - "Late Lives": Driving piano (appropriate, eh?) begins this banger of a track. This track is my first foray into exploration of a band I've heard several friends rave about, and I'm hooked. If you want to hear a piano led track that is neither a ballad nor pop - check this ...
