Free Download: Passionate Hope Vol. 2: Songs Of Worship

Every now and then our buddies at Indie Vision Music put together some pretty amazing compilations that feature tons of great music. They have been around for a while, so normally when when do one of these, they do it HUGE. This one is no different. Over 20 artist make up this awesome sampling of what is happening in worship music today.

Indie Vision Music Presents: Passionate Hope Vol. 2, the second release in our ongoing series that seeks to share great independent worship with people who may not neccessarily connect with the more commercial aspects of modern “worship”.

Our name pretty much says it all in terms of focus here at the site and that is what we intend to do with this and most of our other compilations. Keep the attention on independent artists who struggle to get their message of hope out to the masses among a crowded music scene. Many of these artists aren’t working with big budgets or a marketing team (yes, even us). We do this all DIY on the ground level, hustling through word of mouth, social media links and other website promotions to build up “hype” for these downloads (‘hype’ might not be the appropriate word to use around ‘worship’ but you know what I mean). “Passionate Hope Vol. 2” will be posted on Indie Vision Music “as is” meaning we will not tinker with the sound or “master” it at all. We just want it to sound natural, honest, and stay true to what these artists compose.

Artists include Ascend The Hill, My Epic, The Violent Burning, Miss Angie, and a ton more. Enjoy

Free Download: Bigfoot Wallace-Malleable

bigfoot wallace malleable

So I had a few options of what to post this week for a free download, so I decided to go with my “interesting” pick. Bigfoot Wallace is Jon Hubbell from Chandler AZ. His style is not something that I can quite pin down, but Im sure that fans of Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead, and Son Lux will dig what he is doing on Malleable. Im about 3 spins into this one and I have to say that the songs have really grown on me, I think we may have another addition to the “Best Of…” lists at the end of the year. This is an album you can really sink your teeth into.

Indie Vision Music was kind enough to put this one up for free download, so go support them and support the artist.

Free Download: IVM Sampler Vol.1

Well, my friends it is true, I have been turning to two sources for your weekly free fix. But can you really blame me, I mean IVM is simply putting together some of the best free downloads out there, and Come&Live! is most likely my favorite record label right now.

Free MP3 Download:The Brigade-There Is No Justice EP

thereisnojusticep copy

Bringin you guys the metal on this one! The Brigade is a 5 piece progressive metalcore band out of Austin, TX., and they recently made their demo EP, entitled There Is No Justice up for free over at Indie Vision Music. the band had this to say about their EP:

The EP was recorded live in one day with Andrew Hernandez at Premium Studios in Austin Texas. These were recored months before we ever played a show, and two of the members that performed on this record have since moved on, but we feel The Brigade is stronger than ever. We are currently in the process of fine-tuning our songs for a proper recording, and as we do this we wanted to give you guys a taste of what it is to come.

The songs on this EP deal with warning and declaration. As a band, we dont feel that our music is overtly about ministry, but more about honesty. This is the world that we see everyday, and hopefully you can understand where we are coming from.

Enjoy the songs, and realize this is only the beginning
