As you’re adjusting the dial on your radio, it might take you a while to realize the song you’re listening to is religious. If it weren’t for buzzwords like “God” or “holy,” maybe we’d never know. You won't find too many of these words in Darryl Loiacano's new album Those Who Remain. Loiacano says it's a spiritual album, but it's for people of all religions.
