The Good King

An Album By

Ghost Ship

Review by

Folky in some songs, country in others, Ghost Ship’s The Good King is the second full-length release from mega-church Mars Hill Music’s worship bands. The Good King has hints of Ben Folds Five/Ryan Adams meets Jesus, and others are more pop-rock. While the album may be a bit too varied stylistically, it is well-written and doesn’t fall into your “typical” worship album category. “Jude Doxology” and “Son of David” are particularly beautiful tunes. If you enjoy unique pop-rock worship, flecked with elements of folk and piano, you will enjoy this album.


Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
