It’s 2018, so let’s #rebooteverything.
To be honest, I never thought I work on this site again after a technical problem took it offline in 2013. I moved on with my life. Got a job, and then another job, and ended up working in web development. That was a year ago.
Now, one cross-country move and a few smaller jobs and projects later, I found myself with time on my hands and an urge to get behind a WordPress dashboard again. So here I am, making this up as I go.
In the five years since I last wrote for TFCMB, the world has changed dramatically. I’ve changed dramatically. I’ve found new depths in old songs and realized just how bad others were (Sonicflood’s “Semi-Charmed Li-“, err, “I Want to Know You” comes to mind.) But one constant in the change has been Jon Foreman.
Whether he’s writing for Switchfoot, Fiction Family, or his phenomenal solo EPs, Foreman’s work has stayed artistic rich and authentically vulnerable. You can get a taste of his talent in Old Seasons, New Day, a free EP released on NoiseTrade featuring a song from his 2015 EP Sunlight and four from his earlier EP series Seasons. The EP includes two of my favorite Foreman tracks, “The Cure for Pain” and “Southbound Train”. It’s not to be missed.
