I have recently had the unique and wonderful privilege to listen to the new album Honeycomb Tombs by Karla Adolphe. Seeing as how I know this album will be one to stay in my music catalog for the foreseeable future, I wanted to share a little about it with you.
It was made with the desire to be for people who at some point in their life have faced grief of some kind. Be that grief the death of a loved one, the undesired change of a season in life, the longing for hope where there seems to be none, or of any other kind, everyone faces grief in their life. The music that Karla and her team have poured themselves into touches the very depths of who you are, and does so lovingly, gently, and gracefully.
The music itself is absolutely unforgettable. Each song is like a story told through beauty and pain, and that is the very cry you often see in the book of Psalms. From the soulful cries to the soft melodies, the album truly enables you to feel every movement of this emotional symphony.
From the deep desire left seemingly unmet in "Who Can Hold Me" through the longing for hope in "Ice Road" it is difficult to remain disengaged while listening. If misery could be crafted into a lullaby, "Invisible Lines" would be it. The whole song plays out achingly, like a lyrical dance of mourning. It is just waiting for somebody to choreograph a contemporary dance piece to it.
The art, passion, and care which has been poured out into making this album by all that were involved is sewn all throughout the audio tapestry. It is easy to see why the album's name is taken from the heart of the song "Flying Low," as it talks about breaking free from honeycomb tombs, because this album will be a collection of anthems for freedom, hope, and life through burdens and despairs, and beyond them all. Truly, this album is a taste of what beauty for ashes is all about.
One of the best parts about this album is that it is for free, so go on over here on May 15th and get yourself a free copy of this album. Then after you have done that, tell everyone else you know about it and send them over to Karla's website to get their own copy.
