My Morning Jacket Shares New Song, ‘Magic Bullet,’ Inspired By Recent Violence

first_imgWith tensions continuing to heat up in America, the band My Morning Jacket has taken steps towards peace and love with a brand new song. Titled “Magic Bullet,” MMJ sings poignant lines like “There’s got to be a better way” and “Ain’t no way to solve a problem of the streets with an itchy trigger finger.”The band has shared some eloquent words describing the track as well, which you can read below. Here’s “Magic Bullet,” from MMJ…violence is never the answer. only love. we all need to be a part of the discussion. part of the solution. how long will it take before we realize-we are all the same. this is not idealistic dreaming. this is a fact-we all want only to love and be loved. to nuture and protect those we love.hate comes from the illusion that we are separate and cut off fromone another by factors like race and religion but this simply is not true.it does not matter your race/creed/sexual orientation we are all filled with the same beautiful blood- a mix of old and new generations… past present and future…we are all in there somewhere…in the blood lines together…all of humanity.a beautiful mix of male and female and all the colors rolled up into this wonderful gift we call life. a gift that should be celebrated like the beautiful rainbow that it is- not riddled by bullets and cut to pieces spilling and wasting that precious blood.I don’t pretend to think that a song can fix or change the world instantly, and I don’t pretend to know the ins and outs of the political landscape and proper gun control legislation- BUT if we say nothing then nothing will ever change.and things have got to change.so maybe if we all sing out-if we all speak out- for peace. for equality. for justice. for an end to the violence…then perhaps we can together change the world for the better-create a world of true peace, love, and acceptance where our differences are celebrated because we realize they are in fact all just shades of the same wondrous human rainbow.dare to dream. dreams can come true.no one said it better than Dr. King:“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”here is a wish from us to you for peace,love, understanding, and an end to the violence.we hope you enjoy this song that basically says there can be a solution… but none of us can do it alone. we have to get together.peace and love,my morning jacketLYRICS:AIN’T NO MAGIC BULLET COME FROM MAGIC SHELL.NO OTHER WAY TO PUT IT. FAR AS I CAN TELL.AIN’T NO WAY TO SOLVE A PROBLEM OF THE STREETS.WITH AN ITCHY TRIGGER FINGER…SERVANT OF DISEASE.I MEAN COME ON…HEAR IT FROM THE PEOPLE. READ IT IN THE PRESS.LEARN IT AT THE STEEPLE. FORGET IT IN DISTRESS.LOOKIN FOR SALVATION…JUST A LITTLE HELP.BUT IT NEVER SEEMS TO FIND ME…I’M GONNA TAKE IT FOR MYSELF.I MEAN C’MON….(THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY)THAT LOW FEELIN STARTS TO GET TO ME- NEED TO FIND ESCAPE.SO SMOKE IT FILLS THE LUNGS…AND DRINK CORRUPTS THE BRAIN.AND MORALS GET CONFUSED…IN A DESPERATE MIND.AND THERE AIN’T NO WRONG OR RIGHT… IN A DESPERATE TIME.BUT I KNOW THERE’S A SOLUTION- DEEP WITHIN MYSELF.BUT I AIN’T NEVER GONNA REACH IT…WITHOUT SOMEBODY’S HELP.I MEAN A COME ON…last_img read more

Jay Blakesberg & Alan Paul’s IGE 2018 Barcelona Diary: Greensky Incident, Holly Bowling, Flamenco [Photos]

first_imgInnovative Giving Enhancement (IGE)‘s fourth-annual Music and Art Immersion Community in Barcelona, Spain, is currently underway. The yearly event brings a crew of talented musical ambassadors to foreign destinations where they cross paths with a broad range of multi-genre European artists for ten days filled with immersive international improvisation and collaboration. Lauded music photographer Jay Blakesberg and New York Times best-selling Allman Brothers biographer Alan Paul will be bringing you daily updates on the happenings of the 2018 IGE Music and Art Immersion Community via Live For Live Music. You can check out today’s entry from Barcelona below:The IGE 2018 Barcelona Music and Art Immersion Community is currently happening with Eric Krasno; Nicki Bluhm; Grahame Lesh, Elliot Peck and Ross James of Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Family Band; the String Cheese Incident’s Jason Hann, Keith Moseley and Bill Nershi and his wife Jillian; Greensky Bluegrass’s Paul Hoffman and Anders Beck; guitarists Scott Law and Barry Sless; and Everyone Orchestra drummer and leader Matt Butler. Every day and night has the musicians playing in various formations at hand-picked venues around the city, virtually all of them exclusively for the trip participants.Yesterday was day five, the halfway point, and it began with Bill and Jill Nershi playing an intimate acoustic show in the hotel’s H2O room as guests sat rapt, while some sipped coffee and others did their morning yoga at the Nershis’ feet. The afternoon saw Holly Bowling play a two-hour set of her interpretations of Phish and Grateful Dead music in the otherwise empty European Museum of Modern Art.The night was capped off inside a beautiful 17th-century hall with an exclusive and quite excellent flamenco performance, followed by Greensky Incident, a one-time collaboration between Beck, Hoffman, Moseley, Nershi, and Hann. Jill Nershi and Nicki Bluhm jumped on stage for some spirited chorus singing, and when they ended, the guests filed out into the slick cobblestone streets and mostly headed off together for the 15-minute walk back to the hotel.Today began with various group tours of the epic Sagrada Familia. More musical adventures await this evening.–Alan PaulYou can check out Jay Blakesberg’s photos from day five of IGE’s 2018 Barcelona Music and Art Immersion Community below.
