Rehearsals - EP by The Digital Age on Apple Music

6 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s much to admire in the slyly anthemic Christian rock music of The Digital Age, which features some former members of The Dave Crowder Band. The Digital Age’s use of loud-soft dynamics alone is ridiculously smart. The band doesn't overdo it when it doesn't have to, so that when songs like “After All (Holy)” and “Hallelujah” do coalesce into big, roiling, epic monster songs, they have all the more “oomph” when the chorus drops. The country-rocker “Oh My God/I Am a Seed” is good-natured and fun; it’s more than just an Americana riff. The only track that falls a touch flat is the '90s-ish rocker “How Great Though Art,” which has a nifty sound but never seems to go anywhere. The traditional hymn “Never Grow Old” is given a rousing, goosebumps-inducing treatment; if only more praise and worship music shared its raw and delicate immediacy.

About The Digital Age

A four-piece Christian rock band out of Waco, Texas, the Digital Age is comprised of four of the six members of the former David Crowder Band (which split in 2012), Jack Parker (guitar, Rhodes piano, banjo, vocals), Jeremy Bush (drums, percussion), Mike Dodson (bass, piano, keyboards, vocals), and Mark Waldrop (guitar, mandolin, percussion, vocals). It's a different band without Crowder out front, with Dodson and Waldrop handling most of the vocals, often in harmony, but the Digital Age does an equally good job at presenting spiritual-based material with a secular electronic rock sound. The band released an EP, Rehearsals, in the spring of 2012, and followed it with a full-length, Evening:Morning, at the end of the summer in 2013. ~ Steve Leggett
