  • MANDISA: OVERCOMER
    one of the breakout songs of the past year In many ways Mandisa s career is only just starting to take off even though she s no newcomer to the music scene In fact Overcomer s sales far exceeds that of her debut showing that she s definitely on the up and up Since making her name on American Idol Mandisa is showing that she s so much more than simply a creation of a music reality show The new album largely continues where her 2011 offering What If We Were Real left off Catchy pop tunes based around her superb voice with the occasional R B influenced track Although Mandisa sounds most comfortable on the power ballads like on Where You Begin she knows how to get the feet tapping with some excellent pop sing alongs as well Overcomer is a bold fresh album brimming with Mandisa s positivity and faith in Jesus Christ Example one of the year s standout ministry tracks Dear John is actually Mandisa s plea with her brother John to give his heart to Jesus It s a song that needs to be heard and showcases everything that I have come to love about

  • SWITCHFOOT: FADING WEST   FINALLY HERE
    was to surf write songs play music and see what ideas came says bassist Tim Foreman The band traveled to Jeffreys Bay and Crayfish Factory in South Africa Bronte Beach in Australia Raglan in New Zealand and Uluwatu in Bali and chronicled their physical and emotional journey as well as their unshakeable brotherly bond in Fading West a documentary film available on DVD later this year that features stunning locales revealing interviews jubilant live footage and glimpses of Switchfoot at home and in their studio in San Diego Like Rattle and Hum meets Endless Summer the movie is part travelogue part surf film and part behind the scenes look at the making of the band s barnd new album which will also be entitled Fading West Where do songs come from Switchfoot frontman Jon Foreman muses when reflecting on the process of creating Fading West For me they come from uncomfortable places Awkward painful places where I feel tested face to face with questions that don t have easy answers In an interview with Jake Denning drummer Chad Butler said It s been interesting you know typically a Switchfoot record will start with Jon Foreman and a guitar then we ll build the framework of a song around that But this time there s been a lot more space to have new experimentation finding instruments in the locations we go for instance Drew Shirley finding a guitar on the side of the road in Africa made out of a gas can being inspired by the unique sounds that it had I guess it s allowed us to start from the ground up and let the sounds that we re finding exist without necessarily melody or a lyric yet and just have a landscape of sound I think there s going to be room to breathe on the album that we haven t allowed ourselves in the past You know I think there s that cinematic idea in the back of your mind that you re creating something that doesn t have to be a 3 minute pop song Not surprisingly the album which finds Switchfoot returning to the melodic pop sensibility of their early years was inspired by the sea which Jon describes as a perfect metaphor for simultaneously experiencing comfort and danger You re comfortable out there but it s the unknown he says You can paddle out in South Africa and it s exactly like home and nothing like home all at once That s what I m hoping our record feels like trying to find peace in dangerous places The critics say Fading West is a transporting album It s an album made for the adventure in fact there s a line on one of the songs that goes This heart it was made for the journey and that same spirit is appropriated here It s for the wandering the exploration the joy of returning home Perhaps that word sums it up best this album is abundant

  • NEW HOPE O'AHU: HOPE IS ALIVE
    to make of the name and title until it dawned on me that O ahu is an island in the Hawaii group Worship music from Hawaii Really Nervously I placed the disc in the player while visions of Magnum P I and Lilo Stitch danced before my mind s eye any minute now we re going to hear the island rhythms I thought to myself I already knew that I wasn t going to like it That was almost three weeks ago And looking back now I m ashamed to say that my prejudice is probably tantamount to people who persist in thinking that lions roam the streets of our cities in Africa the CD is still in my car being played and sung along to with wild abandon in the Cape Town traffic every morning No grass skirts are to be found anywhere near Hope is Alive To be fair there is some Polynesian music influence in places on the album but beautifully blended with the modern worship New Hope O ahu has given us a superb collection of worship songs on this album The lead singer s voice reminds me of Rihanna s at times and in other
