A few days ago I came across the Beautiful Eulogy album Satellite Kite. It’s pretty much all I’ve been listening too. In fact, I’ve looked for any chance to listen to it. Especially while I’m at work. The production of the album is on point, with some beautiful chill wavish type beats, but more importantly is the lyrical content. The album has just really resonated with my heart, and really has helped to put my mind where it needs to be to start every day. These guys are nothing but encouraging as you hear about their everyday struggles, just trying to follow Christ the best they can.
One of the stand out tracks for me is called “Anchor.” With a feature from Portland folk-singer Josh Garrels, it is truly a beautiful song. “Anchor of my soul you sustain. When I’m in the storm you remain.” What a great chorus sung in Josh’s falsetto and reminder of how much God loves us. The lush sonic landscape filled with some effected piano is the perfect backdrop for these words. A little dark, but mostly hopeful. The rhymes are also incredibly compelling, and thought provoking.
Do yourself a favor and head over to Humble Beast Record’s page and download this album.
