As such, I’ve come up with my top records of the year. Here’s this year’s list:
- United Pursuit Band – EP / Radiance
I listened to this record (the EP) more than almost any other this year. Amazing, stripped-down, passionate music.
- Urban Rescue – Urban Rescue
A phenomenal first release from a young band. Can’t wait to see what they do next!
- David Crowder*Band – Church Music
This year’s offering from DC*B was a return to the complex, thematic recordings I love of theirs. Much appreciated on many levels.
- Christopher Willits – Live on Earth, Volume 1
Gorgeous live ambient guitar and electronics
- Jahaziel – Ready to Live
A fresh UK hip-hop artist whose tracks saw a lot of play this year.
- Sammy G – Plain an Simple
Love the intersection of grime, dubstep, and UK hip-hop in one Gospel package.
These records arrived too late (Christmas presents, mostly) to be included, but have the potential for heavy play over the next few months:
