Album Review: The Vespers ‘The Fourth Wall’


And now for something completely different: The Vespers, reviewed by Chris.

In a world full of electronic sounds, remakes and dub-overs, remixes and auto tune it is great to hear a sound that doesn’t manufacture a foot tap with a Phat bass line… but a sound that makes your soul smile with the simplicity of the song… the honesty of the band and the melody and rhythm that mirrors life….

There seems to be a ground swelling of people who are looking for ‘real music’ and bands like ‘Rend Collective Experiment’ New Zealand’s ’Avalanche City’ with their single ‘Love Love Love’ the rawkus ’Mumford and Sons’ and the list goes on…

Now you can add to this list ‘The Vespers’ Indie music’s new secret weapon… armed with ukulele, banjo, love and some really catchy tunes, you can expect hearing some more from this group.

And here a nice documentary video about these lovely artists.

Stand


Two beautiful versions of this Donnie McClurkin song.
A song close to my heart.

What do you do
when you’ve done all you can
And it seems like it’s never enough?
And what do you say
when your friends turn away,
and you’re all alone?
Tell me, what do you give
When you’ve given your all,
and seems like
you can’t make it through?

Well, you just stand
When there’s nothing left to do
You just stand
Watch the Lord see you through
And after you’ve done all you can
You just stand

Tell me,
how do you handle the guilt of your past?
Tell me, how do you deal with the shame?
And how can you smile
when your heart is broken
and filled with pain?
Tell me what do you give
when you’ve given your all
Seems like you can’t make it through?
Child you just stand,
when there’s nothing left to do
You just stand
Watch the Lord see you through
And after you’ve done all you can
You just stand.
And be sure
After you’ve done all you can
After you’ve gone through the hurt
After you’ve gone through the pain
After you’ve gone through the storm
After you’ve gone through the rain
Prayed and cried,you’ve prayed and cried
Prayed and cried, prayed and cried
After you’ve done all you can, you just stand.
