Lower Lights New Album

True confession time: I have had the new Lower Lights album sitting next to my computer for two months, maybe even longer, since all time has slipped away into a crazy whirlpool.


I think I was waiting for the perfect day to tuck into a hymn revival set, which doesn't seem like summer fare; I needed the nights to turn cold, days with the window open, bright colors on the mountains. And this week was it.

Two of my favorite hymns get the revival treatment (Lead Kindly Light and Nearer, My God, to Thee) as well as spirituals, like Hank Williams' I Saw the Light. I love to pick out my friends' Deb Fotheringham and Mindy Gledhill's voices (BAM those names just dropped) but there are loads of new contributors on the album, too, like Brooke White and Stephanie Mabey (whom I do not know, but I've heard unsubstantiated rumors they are lovely people.) I'm genuinely enjoying the new arrangements and classic melodies.


Not a moment too soon, either, with The Lower Lights closing the last Rooftop Concert of the season this Friday night in Provo. I'm so looking forward to the show!

If you haven't snagged your own copy, what are you waiting for? A month of Sundays?

Oh, wait, I'm giving away a copy. Just leave me a comment and I'll pick a winner.

we're lame, we just barely bought the first one.

Gretchen Alice said...

Duly noted. I loved the first album. (Better yet, this one has Be Thou My Vision, which is one of my most favorite songs.)

FoxyJ said...

Ooh, pick me! pick me! I love the first one and listen to it all the time.

Nielsens said...

I was so pleased when I discovered the first album. Finally, a sound that matches the way my heart feels when I sing hymns.
favorites from album 1--'tis so sweet and Jesus, Saviour, Pilot Me

Jessie said...

I'm so confused. Just leave a comment? But how do I get my fifty extra entries? No pinning? No Facebook sharing? No tweeting? Just someone actually GIVING AWAY something that they like? No gimmicks? No page-view bolstering? Internet, I don't even know you anymore.

Hildie said...

We love their music and are trying to get there on Friday but with two unpredictable kids who knows what will happen. I promise we would listen to it frequently and dance and sing along with passion!

Erin said...

I live WAY out in the mission field, so I've never even heard of these people. But, I do like music, and I usually like church music, so it sounds cool.

Since I have never heard of this, I am clearly living under a rock and need to change this pronto. :)

Emmie said...

Viv and I love to dance to The Lower Lights. If I won this, there would be even more dancing!

Kris said...

Oh boy. I am a sucker for giveaways, and even more of a sucker for hymn arrangements that don't sound like atrocious semi-pop songs. I can't wait to hear this!
