Last month, Michael Knott died. He was one of the most iconic and controversial figures in the world of indie/alternative Christian music, with a discography that spanned four decades and encompassed everything from goth-y post-punk and dance-pop to psychedelic funk and singer/songwriter balladry. This month’s playlist, titled “Bye Bye Colour,” highlights just a few songs from his extensive catalog.

Accompanying the playlist is the latest episode of my“Playlist Breakdown” podcast, in which I spotlight one of the playlist’s songs and why it’s so special, interesting, and/or meaningful. This month’s episode focuses on “I’m Torn” by Lifesavers Undergrounds, a stunning and impassioned account of the struggle between physical and spiritual desires.
