Free Download: Wayfarer – The River

So lately (and when I say lately I mean the last 3 years) there has been a growing movement in the worship music scene; and that movement is back to the spiritual. Many artists have been taking old hymns and breathing new life into for a whole new generation to experience, The latest to this movement is Wayfarer (featuring former members of Sherwood), who exclusively play “repurposed hymns and spiritual songs. Modern music, classic words”. What sets this one apart, for me at least, is that Wayfarer dont just play old songs in a praise & worship format, but instead incorporate an almost Minus The Bear sense of indie rock into songs that many of us sang in Sunday school as children.

Listen below and decide yourself

Free Download:Least Of These – More Than Conquerors

Least Of These is a little worship outta Texas that play songs like they might never get to again. There is tones of conviction and emotion flowing through each track that make it really hard not to totally dive into their blend of garage/atmospheric rock. At times they sound a little like Cool Hand Luke, at others Thrice; but now matter what shade of their sound they are playing, it is the heart-breaking lyrics that make Least Of These a band you cant ignore.

Free Download: What Glorious Things-Magnitudes Double Download

WE introduce to you What Glorious Things, a brand new Florida rock band that at times reminds me of Sunny Day Real Estate and at times Jimmy Eat World. Their debut EP is called Magnitudes, and it features the band bringing some righteous rock with a side of dance. You can listen below and decide for yourself.

As an added bonus, the band just released a small “Remixes” EP to go along with Magnitudes, so double the downloads today!

Free Download: JGivens- Run.

Simply said, JGivens is gifted.

He is a fresh face among alot of mundane, over-produced artists who are more concerned with “swagger” more than spirit. He is the perfect balance of intelligent lyrics mixed with engaging style. He is a mix between Shad, Propaganda, and Pigeon John, and then something completely on his own.

Hey Humble Beast, pay attention this guy!

check out his video for one of the songs off the album, “Free”

Listen, download and enjoy

Is your head ready for some bangin!? Yes? Then you are in luck because Intense Millennium Records is supplying you with the soundtrack to the chaos.

Intense Millennium Records is a partnership between Divine Metal Distro, Roxx Productions, and two additional individuals Josh Dieckmann and Sandy Scafedi. We have come together under this one umbrella to form a company that is dedicated to releasing fully licensed material from one of the most prolific group of record labels to exist in the Christian Metal scene, the Intense/Frontline/Alarma Records group.

Free Download:An Epic, No Less-We Are The Echo Of Love

an epic no less we are the echo of love

With all the hardcore and rap I post on this website, some people may find it hard to believe that I love eletronica/dance music. Alot! The problom is that it is rare that I run across anything that really grabs my attention in a way that meaningful. About a month ago I downloaded We Are The Echo Of Love from An Epic, No Less, and obviously I loved it because I am now telling you about it.

An Epic, No Less sounds kind of like Owl City or Lights if they were much more worshipful. Well, instead of me explaining watch this video for their song “Echo Of Love”.

The whole album has that kind of vibe, so if you dig it, GO DOWNLOAD IT!

Free MP3 Album:Brian Lee & His Orchestra-Vol.II

brian-lee-and-his-orchestra-volii

So a long time ago (well it seems like a long time ago for me), in February, we as a website were beginning to pick up a little steam. One of seemingly ongoing features that we were beginning to offer every week was these full album downloads that we found from all over the net.  One of our favorites came from a same indie folk band out of Nashville called Brian Lee & His Orchestra.  Their free download of Vol.I has been a staff favorite around here since before we posted it.  Check out Vol.I by Brian Lee & His Orchestra

Well, here we are some great amount of time later, and Brian Lee & His Orchestra has another album for you, and once again it is for free.  This time around, the boys have gone a little more indie than folk, and there are some truely interesting songs on here.  The thing that stands out, as did with Vol.I, is the intellegent songwriting.  These guys really think everything through, and it shows.

I hope you enjoy this, and I hope that (if you havent already) you would go download their other CD as well.  Believe me, you will be a fan.

For fans of: Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Bradley Hathaway
