Christian indie rock rawks!

Over the years my music tastes have skewed away from CCM (contemporary Christian music) and mainstream music, and delved more into the realm of indie rock.  It’s a pity really, because now I just think that radio singles are (with the exception of a few really good songs) rubbish.

As it is, I have highlighted for your attention two very brilliant Christian indie rock artists.  First is Kevin Max (of former DC Talk fame) with his new release Cotes d’Armor (True Rebels).  It’s a brilliant mix of catchy pop-rock and electronic songs, which prove to be rewarding to those who try to appreciate it.

Another good indie rock artist is Starflyer 59.  Chances are you’ve never heard of them, but they’ve been signed to Tooth & Nail Records since 1993.  Their new release The Changing Of The Guard is a very pleasant blend of acoustic and classic rock, with a bit of Starflyer 59’s signature “shoegazer” sound thrown in (don’t ask me what it means, but that’s the primary genre that they’ve defined themselves as).

Some of these indie rock artists CAN be a little bit vague about their faith (it doesn't mean they're not Christians), but don't let it put you off.  In my opinion, someone has to balance out the lack of imagination in contemporary Christian music these days.
