On this episode of The Closing Track, Austin and Aaron look back over 2015 and give their top 5 albums of the year – who made our lists, and why? There were several surprising choices! Aaron decides to review the new Cradle of Filth album, Austin goes nuts on the new Gungor album, and Ryan Culwell gets compared to craft beer. This is easily one of the most insane episodes we’ve done yet.
On this episode of The Closing Track, Austin and Aaron outline their plans for the 4th of July (with Aaron’s plans being far more epic than Austin’s) and talk country music, Americana music, patriotism in songs, millennials and politics, and quite a bit more! Austin reviews the new Emery album, Aaron acknowledges the glorious taste of Founders Breakfast Stout, and much more! New Question of the Week and exciting updates included!
On this episode of The Closing Track, Austin, Aaron, and Andrew discuss Taylor Swift’s open letter to Apple and their subsequent response. Austin reluctantly confesses he likes Taylor Swift for this recent stunt, Aaron reviews the new Kacey Musgraves album, and Andrew sheds light on giving albums away for free vs the traditional compensation model. Plenty of reco’s (even a dis-reco!), several responses to the Question of the Week, and more!
On this episode of The Closing Track, Austin and Aaron discuss an article from the lead vocalist of The Ember Days on worship, expression in worship, “organic” worship, and…yeah, worship. We also review the new Jamie xx and Of Monsters and Men releases, discuss how awesome Puerto Rico’s version of Christmas is (and Santa Clause is a Peeping Tom), the passing of Christopher Lee, coffee shop gimmicks, and more! First installment of our new Question of the Week segment included!

On this episode of The Closing Track, we begin our new Question of the Week segment by asking: if any artist/band could sing Happy Birthday at your birthday party, who would you pick, and why? We also talk lists and why we make them, since every music lover has a list of some type for favorite albums/artists/songs/ect. We discuss our top 3 favorite genres, musicians, and concerts, as well as our favorite book as favorite beers, and then ask a cliffhanger rhetorical question: do we glorify God the way we choose our favorite things, or are there other motives at hand? Plenty of reco’s, profound revelations, and potentially blasphemous Harry Potter remarks included!
