Over the last nine months our family has listened over and over to Gungor’s album Beautiful Things. From my vantage point, the music they are making is where worship music has to go next. They are writing and creating music which is, for the most part, unheard of in the Christian music industry. The lyrics are original and thoughtful, and the music they are creating is well-crafted, using a myriad of instruments to create the sound they are making.

I have now seen them live twice in this last year and if you get a chance to see them, you definitely should go. In this last year, I’ve seen the Decemberists and U2, but I think this latest concert by them that I went to has to be my favorite of the year.

Beyond that, it looks like their latest album Ghosts Upon The Earth is going to come out in late September. Here is a short preview.
