Rewind & Fast Forward – CMZ Talk #4

Rewind and Fast Forward

Take a look at the fourth installment of Rewind & Fast Forward – CMZ Talk!


Audio Adrenaline tour

Audio Adrenaline is on tour! How sweet is that? I mean, besides the part where they aren’t coming to the part where I live!

There were a ton of music videos released this week, but I feel like featuring this one by V. Rose (Featuring Flame) because I’m not sure if it is the best thing ever or the worst thing ever.


Anberlin released a pretty sweet video too, but they decided to put it up on Vimeo, so you have to go to the link. Boo that, right?

Jason Dunn Abandon Progress Cover

I am incredibly interested in whatever this documentary by Jason Dunn will discuss. In other words, why did he really leave Hawk Nelson to do the solo thing?

Fast Forward

bethel music

Bethel MusicWithout Words

No, I don’t believe that Bethel Music is mad at us writers, even the ones who use old school typewriters instead of a MacBook Air like I do. They just wanted to make some sweet instrumental tunes, even though it makes reviewing it darn near impossible.

We Shot The Moon Love On

We Shot The MoonLove On

I haven’t heard more than one song on this new album, but I’ll buy pretty much anything from Jonathan Jones and company, even though it has been less than a year since Love and Fear came out. I wonder what he’ll bring us this time? Love and Fear was my favorite album from Jones since his Waking Ashland days when Composure was released.

Various - Jesus, Firm Foundation: Hymns Of Worship

Jesus Firm Foundation is still a pretty awesome musical and lyrical journey, and a great way to revisit some of my favourite hymns.” – Josh Andre (From our Review)

The Dream Cover

Wait, what just happened here? Oh, that’s right, my novel The Dream is coming out tomorrow on Amazon Kindle! I hope you book readers will find it in your heart and mind to support it like you would do for your favorite band. Writing helps me support my family and I’d like to be able to continue my writing career, including good ole CMZ. Let me know if you pick it up and enjoy it!

Have a great week, everybody!

  1. I wasn’t really sure what I thought of the Anberlin music video. It was almost too bizarre for me.
    I am excited to see what comes out of AA touring this year. So many negative comments were made when they first brought Kevin Max into the mix, but I really think that they have potential if you think of them as a completely different group than they were ten years ago.

  2. What’s wrong with “Battery” by V. Rose and Flame? I think that video is awesome! One of my favourites this year! :)

    I love Martin Smith’s new video for “Back To The Start” and Marie Miller’s video for “You’re Not Alone”! Pity they weren’t in the ‘Rewind’ part…

    personally I think the Rewind part should be a little bit longer- in weeks past there were on average 4 entries (i think…), I think perhaps 6 would be better as more of an accurate snapshot of the week. I’m not sure… but I guess whatever you decide, Tyler is final. I’m ok with that :)
