4. WRK4
5. WRK5
6. WRK6
7. WRK7

Notes:
  “For the 2nd album by Toronto group Biugek, called WRK, the drums-and-keyboards duo go deeper inside their metallic and mathematical vortex. And go to work. They aren’t laying back into the jams here, this is full on running a tight ship experimental polyrthythmic metal – a palate of dry black-and-white shadows mechanically running off course, a puzzling mind within the mind. This is fucking sick and it keeps coming at you in the best way. Picture an eccentric machinist curious what the gears can do when pushed to the limit, before they pop and pull apart in a chopper whirl of tools and die, that second before it explodes, all that study for a firework flash of time. Where perfect left turns act as alleyway shortcut savvy, blueprint navigation theirs alone, laying the dynamite’s trail, with the smoke cloud’s tail, where unwinding and serpentine entanglements of traps and keys pummel, work the shadows, and tease utter deterioration. For that firecracker blaze in a powdered second, they go to work.” – Kevin Cahill, Rotational Review

Brook Nicholls 2015 CD

December 27, 2015

 

Artist: Brook Nicholls
Release: Saviour Of The World
Genre: Christmas, Worship music.
Year: 2015 (Dec)
From: Chatham-Kent
Home: Toronto

Tracks:
1. To Us A King is Born.
2. Saviour Of The World.
3. O Come, O Come Emmanuel.

Notes: 
For Canadian Worship Leader and Songwriter Brooke Nicholls, the goal has always been to help people experience freedom through Worship. From humble beginnings in rural Churches in her hometown of Chatham, Ontario, to now traveling & leading Churches and ministries across Canada and beyond, Brooke’s heart remains the same: to usher people into transformative encounters with the spirit of God.

For the last seven years, Brooke has served as the Worship Leader at her Church in Burlington, ON, while making a name for her self in the Pop music scene. Now, feeling a call from God and a changing of her heart, Brooke aims to pursue Worship music full time, and will release her debut original Worship Album in July of 2015.

Centered around the theme of God’s redemptive grace in even our most broken situations, the songs on Brooke’s album are heartfelt and honest; a testament to God’s work in her own journey. The album’s lead single, “I Am Free”, is a congregational song that uses the classic imagery of Isaiah 53 to tell the salvation story. Other songs, like the anthemic “Beauty From Ashes”, were written from opportunities Brooke had to witness God’s transformational work in the lives of others; taking broken situations and making them whole. Rounding out the album are new takes on some favorite hymns like “Blessed Assurance”, which was the first song Brooke’s mother fell in love with when she found God 30 years ago.
