We Recommend - David Crowder Band, 'Church Music'

Anyone who's been reading JFH faithfully for a number of years has probably noticed that I'm picky when it comes to worship music. I'm not proud of it, because I find it very difficult to find worship music that I enjoy listening to AND that can spark my heart to worship along to. I think it boils down to just not really caring for the standard style of most of the modern worship scene (and let's face it... if you've been listening to this kind of music as long as we have, you notice it's a style that's been done to death), so when an artist does something truly different (and I can stand the vocals -- another thing I'm picky about and not proud of), I get excited about them. Two years ago, I was completely caught by surprise by David Crowder*Band's Church Music. The title alone scared the pants off of me. I half-expected another Tomlin or Hillsong effort just judging by the title. Instead, my ears were met with music that was equal parts fun, intriguing and emotional - especially the band's superior cover of "How He Loves" and a wonderful rendition of Flyleaf's "All Around Me." Almost two years later, it's still a worship record that's a real joy to listen to... which makes the recent announcement of their farewell tour this Fall all that more painful to ponder.
