Crosby Stills Nash & Young and a song about Bradley Manning

Greatness from almost 40 years ago...

Crosby Stills Nash & Young - Almost Cut My Hair (Live - 1974)

A song that Crosby Stills Nash performs on the road these days is one Graham Nash and James Raymond recently wrote in support of Government Whistleblower Bradley Manning. It's one of the most important songs in this time of so many wars disguised as fake benevolence.

Trixie Whitley - Breathe You In My Dreams

Early in December, I saw Trixie Whitley at The Satellite in Silverlake California. The show was amazing. She's a great minimalist, who lacks the desire for pomp & circumstance, opting for authenticism that runs deep in her cells. Trixie delivered up music with her sensitive grace and style, with soul so deep.

She thanked the audience several times and meant it, for one could hear a pin drop as the venue fell silent between songs. Quite rare in LA, as all eyes were on Trixie and her every move and word. Near the end, Daniel Lanois stepped in to play along.  It was one of the most memorable intimate shows of 2012.

This song below by Trixie is so excellent, it stayed on repeat for too many plays to count. It seems to have some ethereal commentary attached when heard with the video by Anton Coene, which is a nice work of photographic art that seems to touch on the obscure and controversial subject of "chemtrails". Most importantly, Trixie's got soul so deep. Enjoy!

Esperanza Spalding

Nobody plays bass quite like her. Nobody sings quite like her. And, NOBODY comes close to singing while playing bass like her. There is nobody that has "it" like Esperanza Spalding.

Hymne des Fraternises - Joyeux Noel

Inspired by a true story on Christmas Eve in 1914 during World War I. Front-line soldiers peacefully met each other in No Man's Land to share a precious pause in the carnage with a fleeting brotherhood. This film dramatizes one such section as the French, Scottish and German sides partake in the unique event, even though they are aware that their superiors will not tolerate it's occurrence.

"I hear the mountain birds
The sound of rivers singing
A song I've often heard
It flows through me now
So clear and so loud
I stand where I am
And forever I'm dreaming of home
I feel so alone, I'm dreaming of home

It's carried in the air
The breeze of early morning
I see the land so fair
My heart opens wide
There's sadness inside
I stand where I am
And forever I'm dreaming of home
I feel so alone, I'm dreaming of home

This is no foreign sky
I see no foreign light
But far away am I
From some peaceful land
I'm longing to stand
A hand in my hand
...forever I'm dreaming of home
I feel so alone, I'm dreaming of home"

Cool videos to AWOLNATION's now classic song titled Sail

The strong legs of The LA based electronic rock band AWOLNATION's song titled Sail have amazed me. The music and the band has continuously grown it's audience at least partially due to the third party, fan made videos.

Long before ever viewing the official video to Sail by AWOLNATION. I saw the short film "Grinding The Crack" by the flying man known as Jeb Corliss. And no, Grinding The Crack is not pornography. In Corliss' films, he jumps off a cliffs and out of planes to fly through the sky. In Grinding the Crack, he flies through a crack in a mountain top. He can fly and land like Rocky in Rocky & Bullwinkle. Whilst Jeb Corliss' now classic video is my favorite one using the song Sail, other fan made videos are pretty darned cool too, and so is the official band produced video. Enjoy!
