CROSSO V ER Gungor One Wild Life: Soul (Moniker Music) FOR FANS OF: All Sons & Daughters, Sufjan Stevens, Imogen Heap QQQQ Representing part one of the One Wild Life trilogy, Soul is the newest effort from husband and wife-led and multiple GRAMMY- nominated musical collective Gungor. From the arrangements and phrasings, to the melodies and genre- bendings—Soul is expertly crafted and calls for all within earshot to take immediate notice. The pop-sensibilities of “Moon Song,” “One Wild Life,” and “Us For Them” contrast the haunts of “Am I” and “Vapor,” but all the same announce the bold, future sounds of this ever-evolving and ultra-innovative outfit. pop Worship Jon Foreman The Wonderlands: Shadows EP (lowercasepeople) FOR FANS OF: Switchfoot, Coldplay, Ben Rector QQQQ Tim Hughes Pocketful of Faith (Integrity Music) FOR FANS OF: Kristian Stanfill, Hillsong United, Bethel Music QQQQ Emerging from the tides of trends, we once again find Jon Foreman with his second of four to-be-released EP’s under the headline of The Wonderlands. Following suit, Shadows incorporates six stand-alone treasures that showcase an introspective, yet spotless Foreman. It’s rare for a collection of songs to contain such depth while musically raising the bar—think OK Computer and Revolver. We can’t wait for the next installment! –Kevin Sparkman Tim Hughes, one of the most prolific songwriters and artists in contemporary worship music delivers another stand- out album with Pocketful of Faith. From the John Lennon- esque sounds of Arms to the potential youth anthem Plans, Hughes weaves together a palatable soundscape that keeps the listener engaged. Much of this album was written during a season of transition for Hughes and that definitely shows here. Upon listening, we are encouraged to join Hughes in that season and step out in faith.
