No one sings all the time   By everything else we shall also be judged

                                                    But only we ourselves can do it

This is without exception   We who are everything else   In the dark

                                                               song, bright, beyond

                                                                   all comprehension

Goran Sonnevi, in part LIII of his Mozart’s Third Brain, translated from Swedish by Rika Lesser, published by Yale, on sale here.

"When I saw the Nazis march, I saw machine-like people and the power of the Nazi state. Auto-destructive art is to do with rejecting power." In 1961, wearing a gas mask, Gustav Metzger performed one of the most famous acts of auto-destructive art when he threw hydrochloric acid at a sheet of nylon on London’s South Bank. “The important thing about burning a hole in that sheet,” he recalls, “was that it opened up a new view across the Thames of St Paul’s cathedral. Auto-destructive art was never merely destructive. Destroy a canvas and you create shapes.”

Look Again To The Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited
  Buy CD | iTunes
Produced by Joe Henry, featuring Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bill Miller and more
Of all the dozens of albums released by Johnny Cash during his nearly half-century career, 1964’s “Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian” is among the closest to the artist s heart. A concept album focusing on the mistreatment and marginalization of the Native American people throughout the history of the United States, its eight songs among them “The Ballad of Ira Hayes,” a #3 hit single for Cash on the Billboard country chart spoke in frank and poetic language of the hardships and intolerance they endured.
Now, 50 years after it was recorded, a collective of top Americana artists has come together to re-imagine and update these songs that meant so much to Cash, who died in 2003. For “Look Again to the Wind: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited,” creative leader and album producer Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Aaron Neville) realized that the “Bitter Tears” album held a special place in Cash’s canon, and that in many ways the issues it raised still resonate today. This had to be apparent in the new versions he was recording for “Look Again to the Wind.” The album features American music giants Kris Kirstofferson, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bill Miller, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, and Norman Blake (the guitarist and only surviving member from the original recording sessions) as well as up-and-comers The Milk Carton Kids and Rhiannon Giddens, interpreting the music of “Bitter Tears” for a new generation. As the original album was for Cash, this new collection is a labor of love with a strong sense of purpose fueling its creation. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville and at Johnny Cash’s personal recording studio, Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN.
As a companion piece to the album, the documentary, “We’re Still Here: Johnny Cash s Bitter Tears Revisited,” traces the history of “Bitter Tears” and the making of “Look Again to the Wind.” The film is directed by Antonio D Ambrosio, author of “A Heartbeat and a Guitar,” a book about the making of “Bitter Tears.”

Jenny Scheinman’s quartet represents a specific breed of contemporary players, raised on and used to playing all kinds of music; they don’t worry much about what genre they’re working in. With their broad frames of reference, they can take the music wherever they want, by design or in the moment.
