New Music I Love: Desperation Band, Sovereign Grace Music & Paul Baloche

Every now and then, people ask me what new music (mainly worship music) am I listening to, loving, and recommending. So every once in a while I post some music I’m listening to here on the site. Enjoy.

Desperation Band: Center Of It All

In my opinion, this is the best cd that Desperation Band has put out. It is the first where they have written all songs around a theme. That theme? The centrality of Christ. You can find the theme in every song. The album is a little more sedated than their previous cds and has a more electronic feel than any of their other projects with exception of their Sessions & Remixes EP.

This ministry is great. They are dedicated to writing songs for the local church that are highly scriptural and deeply theological. This project revolves around the resurrection of Christ. While most only sing resurrection songs during Easter, this album gives the church great songs to sing about the resurrection all year long.

Paul Baloche: The Same Love

It is of my opinion that Paul Baloche has released three great albums: Open The Eyes of My Heart, A Greater Song, and this one. The Same Love focuses on the love of Christ, but through the cross instead of sappy emotionalism. Paul’s writing on the cd is pretty top-notch. The only sad thing about Paul is that my generation and the next will most likely miss out on his great songs because his style isn’t cutting-edge. He’s revamped his sound recently and is pretty great now, but still falls short of high-energy music like current Hillsong United stuff. But unless your an avid fan of hyper music, you’ll most likely love this cd.
