Through and Through Gospel Review, Boris, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, and More in This Week's Issue

This week's issue bring you the story of Joel Marquard's Through & Through Gospel Review, which finds the songwriter stepping away from the indie rock sound of his band Gospel Claws to explore gospel music. Marquard speaks about belief, his family ties to gospel music, and why everyone (mistakenly thinks) of Gospel Claws as a "Christian band."

We've also got shorter features on genre-defying trio Boris, and a talk with soulster JC Brooks, who leads the Uptown Sound.

Check out our show previews about The Sounds, Kongos, Real Estate, Pegi Young, Key Losers, and SubConscious at Bar Smith.
