Children 18 3 January 2015

The Minnesota-based sibling trio Children 18:3 is going to release a new album in 2015.  That's exciting news for fans of this band that has been a staple of Christian rock radio for the last three quarters of a decade.   The Morris natives have two January shows in their home state in January: Marshall, in southern Minnesota, and Hibbing, on the Iron Range of northern Minnesota.  Details of the new album are sketchy at this point.

Project 86 Offers Up Knives To The Future

Project 86 art Knives To The Future

Project 86's new album "Knives To The Future" releases today. 

This work tells a 12-song narrative that picks up where Wait for the Siren left off. While WFTS explores the motivation to fight and give your life for truth, Knives takes a look at the moments after the battle.  More specifically, this album looks at one soldier who has just emerged from unconsciousness and finds himself on a frozen, haunted battlefield.  Souls part with bodies all around him, and he has no recollection of his past, who he is, or whether he is alive or dead.  All he knows is that he sees a light up ahead atop a mountain, and he must run to it to find answers.  The album follows him through apocalyptic landscapes and vivid memories as he searches for the truth about who he is and his destiny.  This journey is best experienced alongside the epic illustration by Dan Mumford contained in the CD package…

Lo-Fi Stream Added For Blast And Blender Access In Bangladesh

Some of the things listeners have come to expect when listening to The Blast and The Blast Blender are:  high quality streams, bit rate choices, and accessibility.   We thought we had all the bases covered, with bit rates from 128 kbps down to 24 kbps, using the AAC+ codec at 24 kbps, which is light years better in sound than a 24 kbps mp3.stream.

However, we were recently informed by a passionate Blast and Blender listener named Rayhan, in the south Asia country Bangladesh, that he has an "ancient" smart phone (built in 2005) that can only play certain kinds of mp3 streams.  He also said that he needs a low bit rate stream, as mobile bandwidth is very expensive in Bangladesh, and he says the mobile internet is slow there.

So despite the low sound quality of this bit rate and codec combination, we have set up a 24 kbps mp3 stream for Rayhan and others who are in a similar situation.

You will find the streaming address on our "All Streams, All Media Players" page:  http://www.theblast.fm/wp/other-streams/
