“Finch In The Pantry” Album Review

&

The first time I listened to an Arcadian Wild album, I think I was cleaning a bathroom. Maybe that’s why that album (and eventually the rest of their work) became my cleaning music. When Saturday rolls around and I need to clean so I don’t drive my roommate crazy, I put on the band’s self-titled album and sing along. At the end of every break, when I have to pack up the suitcases again, the...

A Playlist to Listen to During Quarantine

A

We never wanted to live through a pandemic, but here we are. Maybe you’re annoyed or grieving because it feels like life has been cancelled. Maybe you’re genuinely afraid for yourself or others. Fear. Worry. Panic. Anger. It seems like that’s all we hear and everything that surrounds us. But right now, of all times, is when we need to be remembering truth and focusing on what is good. Maybe we...

The Song Every Teen with Depression Needs to Hear

T

In case you haven’t heard yet, Lauren Daigle just recently dropped her full album, Look Up Child. It’s amazing. Even before she released the entire album, the singles pre-released were making significant waves within the industry as they each dropped, with the title track even making Apple Music’s coveted “World Record” playlist. Anyways, the second track on the...

Spotify and Saul: Thinking Like Christians About Popular Music

S

It’s no secret that I love music. The Spotify app on my computer is almost always open. I have several albums downloaded on my phone. I memorize the lyrics for my favorite songs and sing them at the top of my lungs when no one else is around. I play both violin and guitar whenever I have time, and I’ve even tried my hand at songwriting (rather poorly). It’s no secret that our culture loves music...

How should Christ followers approach media? In our culture, media is very popular and for some people, it rules their lives. As Christ followers, we should approach the subject of media conscientiously. We can easily fall on either side of the horse, legalistic or liberal. And it’s hard to keep balanced. Here are a couple questions to ask yourself when you’re contemplating watching a TV show, or...

Don’t Use Music To Distract Yourself

D

I love music. I always have. I sing whenever I have a chance and have my headphones on for most of the day. I turn to it when I’m sad, happy, mad, or things turn sour. Basically, I use music to cope. Is that a bad thing? No, but it becomes a problem when I use it to avoid my emotions and rely on it instead of God. I have come to the conclusion that I’m using music to drown out my...

How Music Can Meaningfully Shape Your Sabbath

H

“By the seventh day, God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done” (Genesis 2:2-3). The Sabbath is a distinct day; it is unique, consecrated, set apart. The seventh day is listed among the Ten Commandments that God delivered...
