Sarah Macintosh Current *Giveaway*
Sarah Macintosh Current
Here are the songs included on Sarah Macintosh's new album, Current:
2 We Should Run- 'Cause we should run we should be laughing, We should look and see that He is lifted high, We should shout we should be dancing, We should call and find a Saviur who's alive
3 Take It All
5 Laughter Comes Upon Us-
I visited Sarah's website and read the story behind this song as I listened to it. Let's just say it is a story full of pain but with a beautiful ending. I appreciate her honesty and open heart in sharing her story.
6 Galaxy Former
7 The Damaged
8 Hiding Place
9 You're Coming- Close my eyes, You're there inside my hearbeat, And Your melody that leads me to You
10 Calling, Calling
11 Joy Comes In- We will weep and we will cry, But joy comes in the morning, Though the tears may flood our eyes, Joy comes in the morning
I enjoyed listening to this CD. The music is soothing and full of many different instruments. The words are meaningful and sung with a beautiful voice. You can feel Sarah's passion in her voice as she sings. Her words feel like they have come from a deep reservoir of thought and love for God. As a Christian I appreciate music which is encouraging to me in my walk with God and Current is one album I will turn to again and again.
I think most people who like pop music will enjoy this album. It is difficult for me to describe her sound so I will share a quote from Sarah's website instead,
"From the first moments of Sarah’s new album Current, you know that you are hearing something that stands apart. Yes, her music nestles in comfortably within our acceptable parameters of pop music. The vessel is correct. But the contents are of a completely different color. From the opening track you are listening to that drop of color make its way into every space within the glass. The bouncy and unexpected harp that opens the album’s title track gives way to strings, a chorus of drums, and a huge melody – a sonic palette that should sound familiar to anyone who has spent time listening to the Nashville indie-act Paper Route, co-producer JT Daley’s other day job."
Visit Sarah's website to hear her music and read her thoughts on her music and life.
