Swan Song - EP
There’s a sense of deep yearning and tenderness to Hunter G K Thompson’s songs, invoking the Spirit through humble testimony rather than revivalist bombast. Swan Song is the sophomore EP by the Northern California–based Bethel Music worship leader; he meditates upon eternal life and boundless Love in acoustic-centered tracks that spotlight Thompson’s plaintive vocals. Tunes like “Song of David,” “Maranatha,” and “To Love You Rightly” glow with a guileless rapture that recalls such ‘70s-era Jesus Music artists as Phil Keaggy and Keith Green. Especially memorable is the title track: a prayerful, quietly moving reflection on mortality and rebirth.
