Check out all these great new albums that release today. All are available on iTunes or on Spotify (free streaming application – awesome!).
1.) Gungor – Ghosts Upon The Earth
For Fans of: Glen Hansard, John Mark McMillan, David Crowder Band, Jonsi, Mute Math, Imogen Heap
First impression: This is a very “indie-hipster” type album. If you are looking for worship music that will be easy to replicate for congregational use, this probably isn’t for you. However, if you are looking for a Christian album that is willing to take risks and explore diversity of sound and topic, you will fall in love with the creativity of Gungor. Here is a previous review of their first album, Beautiful Things.

2.) NeedToBreathe – The Reckoning
For Fans of: Mat Kearney, Gungor, John Mark McMillan
First Impression: Does anyone have a cooler voice than Bear Rinehart? I mean, c’mon. The dude’s name is Bear. Of course my first impression is I love it. I think you will too.
3. Jeremy Riddle – Furious
For Fans of: Phil Wickham, Chris Tomlin
Since none of his songs are on YouTube, here is his most popular single, “Sweetly Broken.”
4. Leeland – The Great Awakening
For Fans of: Coldplay, Brandon Heath, Matt Maher, beautiful harmonies 🙂
5.) Matt Maher – The Love In Between
For Fans of: Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns

Also, you may want to check out Toby Mac’s latest signing in Jamie Grace. This sounds much more like “Top 40 Radio” does right now. No doubt she’s a talented 19-year old !
