A Helpful Guide to Fill Your Ipod

Posted by jon on March 13, 2012 in music and videos |

With the release of new music, Tuesdays are good days to evaluate the state of your ipod. And if on your quarter week perusal you find your music to be a bit lacking…relax. I am here to help. I’ll give you 5 recommendations to bring life back to your saddest playlist. I promise you will enjoy what we have in store today. So here we go!

“White Flag” Passion
Released just today I was lucky enough to get an advance copy and this is one of the best Passion worship CD’s in a while (and that is saying a lot). The record was recorded at Passion 2012 in the Georgia Dome with 40,000 college students, and it features songs from Chris Tomlin (of course), Matt Redman, David Crowder, Kristian Stanfill, and others. The title track “White Flag” is a powerful anthem of surrender and victory that is sure to find its way into many worship sets for years to come. Other notable tracks include (but are not limited to): “Jesus Son of God”, “All This Glory”, “One Thing Remains”, and “Not Ashamed”.


“Give Us Rest or (A Requiem Mass In C [The Happiest of All Keys])” David Crowder* Band
This is the final album from the DCB, but they might have saved the best for last. If nothing else you will get your money’s worth in the title alone. Not only is it a great album in itself but it is full of layers of meaning from the title to the track list (even the length of the some songs is significant). So there is definitely something for everyone. Some must hear tracks are: “Let Me Feel You Shine”, “Oh Great Love of God”, “Oh Great God, Give Us Rest”, and a truly moving version of “Because He Lives” (a great way to end the DCB).


“Counting Stars” Andrew Peterson
This is the latest release from my favorite songwriter. If you can listen to “Dancing in the Minefields” without remembering why you fell in love with your spouse then congats your heart is made of stone. It is a touching piece of art that expresses Andrew and draws in the listener and makes them feel it is their song. Some absolute must listen tracks are: “Dancing in the Minefields”, “Fool With a Fancy Guitar”, and “The Reckoning (How Long)”.


Boyce Avenue
This isn’t a CD recommendation, but it is a MUST. If you are familiar with Boyce Avenue then you know and if you’re not, do yourself a favor and spend the next 30min on their YouTube channel (then come back and say thank you). Support them by purchasing some tracks on itunes, but plan on spending some time on their channel once you go (make sure you look to some of their older stuff). Here’s a starter set: “Slide”, “Perfect”, “Last Kiss”, and “Keep Holding On” (Just to name a few).


“Summer Session” the AMP band
As a totally unbiased observer I would have to say that this is a great CD that showcases a great group of young people. You will enjoy new takes on some favorite worship songs. This is the first, and hopefully not the last, project that has come out of AMP Student Ministries. Notable tracks include: “Revelation Song”, “Beautiful Things”, and “No One Like You”.

You can buy “Summer Sessions” on iTunes or ampstudents.org/store


So there you go. Enjoy. God is Everywhere
