The folksy aspect of Costly, the sophomore studio EP from worship band Ghost Ship (formerly of Mars Hill), makes the album a breath of fresh air in the overly saturated “worship genre.” Perhaps the best way to describe Ghost Ship’s unique, down-to-earth sound is that it’s reminiscent of warm summer nights, sitting on a porch with good friends and family, laughing and sharing stories. The songs are inviting as well as intimate, with lyrics focused on God’s love and what that love means to us. Notable tracks include “Invitation,” “The Way,” “Fear and Love” and their adaptation of the hymn “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.” Add a little folk and country to your worship playlist; you won’t be disappointed.
