Redemption Songs

Redemption Songs

On Redemption Songs, Jars of Clay apply their earthy folk rock to a clutch of cherished hymns and standards. The archaic piece “God Will Lift Up Your Head” is turned modern thanks to ringing guitars and a sturdy backbeat, but the band’s arrangements also retain a sense of age: “I’ll Fly Away” invokes ’70s country rock with gooey organ and shaggy twang, while “Nothing but the Blood,” featuring ecstatic harmonies from The Blind Boys of Alabama, embraces old-school gospel.
