Joy Of The Lord
Label: Rend Collective
On their fifth studio project, Rend Collective create beautiful, worshipful Americana-pop, which is ironic considering they hail from Northern Ireland. If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon, this album will have you begging to board. This five-piece band has a Mumford-esque quality and a sense of humor that's rare in worship acts. "You Will Never Run" is the big hit, but almost every song on the 16-track deluxe version is a folk gem. The band's engaging style makes it impossible to sit still. Before you know it you'll be clapping your hands, stomping your feet or bobbing your head in time.
