Want some new music for the rest of your weekend? Propaganda’s New album Excellent is out now. It’s from the Humble Beast label, who have a great and creative approach. Production by Beautiful Eulogy (who’s Satellite Kite album is one of my favourites this year).
Chilled, at times almost folky, beats and very playful but provocative rhymes. It lives up to its name! Get it free from HB or support them by buying on itunes.
I Love, love love this album. Its got a underground hip-hop feel with laid back beats, at times folksy elements and super-fast rhymes that are very unashamedly Jesus-centric. If you are into God-music, or even just into underground hip-hop you really really should have a listen. You can get it free too from the brilliant Humble Beast.
It’s easy to be a bit cynical about Christian worship music at times, but over the last couple of years there have been one or two albums by fairly mainstream Christian artists that have really tried to push things forward in terms of songwriting and musicianship, I’m thinking of Josh Garrels (who features on one of the songs on Satellite Kite), Gungor, Rend Collective… they’re albums I don’t just listen too because they have worship focussed lyrics, but where the music is actually quality and creative too. This is definitely another of those albums!
