Sounds Round Up: Synesthesia, Hillsong, & Mosaic

I’m always the first to know or the last to know about new music, it’s strange. I can either hear something the second it’s out or I have to hear it months later. This is the case with the two bands I’ll talk about today.

Bethel | Synesthesia

I like words. Singing along to words is always fun. I can only listen to instrumentals if I’m being dramatic and looking out my car window while it’s raining. But I remember stumbling into Bethel’s first Without Words album and kept waiting for the lyrics to be sung, the name should have given me a hint. Synesthesia takes a melodic route that combines soft instrumentals with a hint of modern beats. Although I expected more slow instrumentals from their last album, they have an instrumental for Oceans (Where Feet Mail Fail), which was an interesting take on the song. It’s a beautiful compilation and great interpretation of songs we constantly hear. Overall, this album provides great mood music.

Mosaic | MSC (Live in LA)

I should have known that Mosaic had an album, it makes sense that they would. When I heard the first song, “Beautiful,” I was sold. It was a mix of Sleeping at Last and Hillsong Young & Free, so it’s probably my favorite song by them. The rest of the album is solid and I can easily listen to the whole album straight through a couple of times a day. So if you need a new worship band, here you go.

Hillsong en Español | En Esto Creo

I’m such a huge fan for translated songs, especially from Hillsong. I’ve had “Vida Tu Me Das” and “Oceanos” on repeat for a few weeks now, so having a full length album is the greatest. It’ so cool to hear Taya Smith sing, “Vasijas Rotas (Sublime Gracia)” and I was pretty much sold hearing the Spanish version of “Cornerstone.” It’s always great to hear official translations straight from the source, so it arrive at the right time.
