Here’s five songs that I want you to love as much as I do this month:
1. “Lord of All” – Young Oceans
This is one of my favorites from the self-titled debut album by the best praise band I’ve ever heard. If beautiful, atmospheric, worship music is something you might like, you need to hear this band.
2. “In The Woodshop” – Falling Up
This comes from the upcoming final album by my favorite band of recent years, Falling Up. This is an odd selection for this list as I’ve only actually listened to this song one time (I don’t like to play out a single before hearing the album), but it’s one that’s going to be playing consistently when the album comes out (along with every other song on it). I’m just so excited for this album that I had to include this song.
3. “Down Side Of Me” – Chvrches
The recently released sophomore Chvrches album, Every Open Eye, is my favorite album so far in 2015, and this R&B-tinged synth jam is my favorite track.
4. “Atlantis” – Postiljonen
Postiljonen has released two new singles this year, so hopefully there’s a new album on the way. “Atlantis”, however, comes from their 2013 debut album, Skyer. “Midnight City”-esque song + Female vocals = You know you want to hit play.
5. “Eyeshadow” – No Devotion
No Devotion features several former members of lostprophets along with one of my favorite frontmen, Geoff Rickly of Thursday. This is one of the more post-punk sounding tracks on their diverse, yet consistent, debut album, Permanence. If you like The Cure, New Order, or any of the other dark and mysterious 80’s band types, you’ll want to hear this great track.
