Band Update: Derek Webb

February 17, 2010

Derek Webb is one of those artists that you have never heard of. His music resides mostly in a sort of underground Christian style that doesn’t really get out or popular, mostly due to his lyrical content. He enjoys bringing the listener’s attention to things that go on today that they really need to think more about, rather than make up their mind. He fights legalism with both barrels blazing, something that is very commendable. Now, this is great and all, but if he can’t back it up with good music, then what is the point? He is a musician, after all. Well, luckily, he delivers not only the commentary, but also the music. And this is very apparent on his most recent album Stockholm Syndrome (2009). On what is without a doubt his best album to date, Webb strengthens his lyrics to the point of it being absurd how great they are. He also deviates from his usual style of mostly acoustic music, drawing more from electronic genres which feels like a breath of fresh air that revitalizes his music. It’s a shame that I didn’t include this album in my best of the year, because it definitely deserves a spot.
