Fruition’s New Album Is A True ‘Labor Of Love’ [A Review]

first_imgPortland, Oregon’s own Americana band Fruition have lived up to their name with their latest release, Labor Of Love. From their days busking in the streets for spare change to the stages of Bonnaroo, the band has made a steady climb towards this new level through a mixture of hard work, talent, and a seemingly unwavering commitment to improve themselves as a band.The three singer/songwriters that make up the creative core of Fruition, Jay Cobb Anderson, Kellen Asebroek, and Mimi Naja all share the same general musical aesthetic of string music done soulfully. Having multiple songwriting perspectives can be a blessing and a curse for a band. If the thoughts and sounds put forth don’t mesh, the music runs the risk of not fully engaging the listener. That said, like the legendary group The Band, Fruition’s parts are all working together to keep the music going in the same direction.Now, releasing an album of impressive original material that culminates all their efforts and creates a collection of songs that provide a snapshot into the bands minds and hearts. The album leads off with the title track, “Labor Of Love,” which shows the effortless nature of the band’s musical blending. Mixing rougher sounds like distorted guitars and mandolins at the same time as the three vocalist partake in a old school “Call-And-Response” that shows an absolute comfort that enables the band to focus their energy fully on the job at hand. Though their skill sets my differ, they are completely in harmony with each other..Check out the first video from the album, “Labor Of Love”, below.The next track gives Mimi Naja a chance to shine in a bluesy, almost gospel like spiritual direction; a wistful ode to a too-far-away love, and a promise to move to the mythical city of “Santa Fe.” Naja’s voice is as powerful as any of the modern blues ladies, and she exudes a startling mix of confidence in her skill and vulnerability in her lyrics that grabs the very hearts of listeners and never lets go. Asebroek contributes some divine organ to that track, and drops his first contribution to the proceedings on the next track, “The Meaning.” His more lilting tones and the three part harmonies make a bit of musical alchemy, making the resultant blend truly golden.The rhythm section of Jeff Leonard on bass and Tyler Thompson on drums have a difficult job backing these accomplished writers, and their various takes on the material. Though they are called upon to keep the momentum going in times of near silence and absolute abandon they manage both points of the spectrum and all those in between in a way that many bands could learn from. The lack of musical ego in these songs is refreshing.  Everyone in Fruition seems to be far more concerned with the songs integrity above and beyond all else, and the result, especially on tracks like “Falling On My Face” and “Beside You.”As the album winds to a close ,a bit of darkness creeps in around the edges within the psychedelic tune “Early Morning Wake Up,” which seems to capture the spirit of some of the denser oddities of the sixties while still remaining contemporary and easily related. Their string band roots show through in the short, succinct “Death Comes Knockin,” a defiant, grinding bluegrass number that could have easily be written a hundred years ago, but again seems as timely and as present as anything on the album. To finish out the album, the band delivers a blast of pure intentions through Naja’s fierce howl, as she cries out what might actually serve as a mission statement for these five talented friends. She sings of their drive to always move forward, no matter the cost. She sings of the possibility that she, and the rest, are losing ground, when that is clearly not the case.Labor Of Love is a startling complete record, sure of itself and what it’s trying to say. Fruition have reached a new level with this album, but if their past is anything to judge them by, there is much to look forward to from Fruition. But until then, they’ve given the world a wonderful example of what dedication and soul can accomplish when people work together.last_img read more

Edwin Jurin: Tourism Manifesto 2021 for a New Age

first_imgTherefore, manifestos or proclamations are related to – turning points in social, cultural and business events. With a man at the epicenter. So, the essence of the manifesto is to act proactively and positively for every man in the system it marks – figuratively speaking from the porter to the president of the company. THE RESPONSIBILITY of tourism is based on understanding, respecting and tolerating the DIVERSITY of all mental orientations and religions of all those involved in tourism. HUMANITY is the foundation for SOLIDARITY TOURISM. Edvin Jurin We strongly oppose further uncontrolled and excessive consumption of space. Tourism which, with its rational and meaningful development, changes both the individual and society as a whole, enriching them with HUMANITY. But let’s not stay indifferent waiting for someone else to set up and sort things out for us. We tourism workers, aware of the times and circumstances in which we live and work, unite in thinking and working in the creation of NEW AGE TOURISM. A man who designs, creates and delivers and ultimately enjoys the tourist experience. SUSTAINABILITY is possible if in tourist destinations, as a meeting place of tourist offer and tourist demand, TOGETHER is assumed to be individual. Such tourism prefers the experience over the numbers, the satisfaction of those for whom the experience is intended – over the balance in the table. I tried to choose words and thoughts carefully and in a balanced way, and here is the proposal of the text, which, considering that it is a manifesto, should be inspiring, but also concise:  Because, for us, tourism is a phenomenon and a job of RELATIONSHIP, and not a mere filling of hotels, camps, villas, marinas and other reception facilities. NEW AGE TOURISM starts from a new approach to the environment in which it originates. The new tourist environment is marked by SUSTAINABILITY and RESPONSIBILITY in spatial, natural, sociological and cultural terms. We will do everything we can to systematically and permanently EDUCATE and build in all age groups and at all levels to meet the demands that lie ahead. First of all, preserving and improving the physical and mental health of our guests. We have no other choice. Idealistic?center_img In these dumb times, I thought: Isn’t it time for tourism workers in Croatia and in the world to encourage themselves first, then everyone else around them with a manifesto that will first mentally and then actively focus on what and for what – they live. The goal is to preserve one of the ten jobs that tourism generates today at the global level and to improve all activities and phenomena that tourism will further develop and improve in a way that brings both tangible and intangible benefits. In such tourism, the spiritual takes precedence over the material in a way that spiritually generates the material, opening the way for added value to tourist products and services.  In order to achieve this, it is necessary to change the focus and the way of acting by adopting NEW VALUES. Tourism that makes us all BETTER in the end with its overall performance! Therefore, TOURISM is THE NEW AGE and TRANSFORMATIVE TOURISM.  That is, tourism that does not separate or oppose but connects both in good and less good times cities, regions and countries by offering integrated and innovative tourism products and services. Conceptual word ”manifest”Binds to the word”proclamation”.  Instead of tourism excel managers, let’s create leaders of relationships that base added value on EMPATHY, EMOTION and ENERGY. It implies that we have something to say. As a rule, something – fateful. It is the right time to offer tourism, or more precisely tourism workers, new VALUES and thus a new HOPE. Top up, upgrade! Free!  Thus, the importance of the role of the manifesto is confirmed, for example, by modern companies that know how to reach for the manifesto as an incentive tool for their employees to guide them in understanding what they do and then deliver what they do as consistently as possible. Can you do better? Any such consumption of space ultimately undermines and then disintegrates the space, and thus the people who inhabit that space or make it attractive in a broader sense to visitors. These are points in time at which we intend to change one for the other. On the psychological side, the content of the manifesto – encourages. WORLD TOURIST MANIFESTO 2021  Dalast_img read more

March for justice: Students trace footsteps of the civil rights movement

first_imgFor the past seven years, the Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs has offered an alternative to tanning on a beach or hitting the slopes for spring break — an opportunity to visit the most vital landmarks of the civil rights movement.This spring break, 20 students and advisers will travel to five cities in Georgia and Alabama on a trip organized by CBCSA associate director Rosalind Conerly and Marshall School of Business graduate student Yasmin Scott. There, they will gain hands-on experience with black history and the present condition of black people in the South.For the students on the trip, traveling to the South is an introduction to a completely new way of life. For many, it is their first trip on a plane. Everything about the culture of the South — from the stereotypical Southern hospitality to soul food — comes as a shock for students who have never been to the Cotton Belt.This culture shock, according to Conerly, is an important part of a trip meant to open the eyes of students to both the past and the present experience of black Americans.“It’s an incredible trip because there is so much for students to take in and process at once,” Conerly said. “They’re looking at how far we’ve come from and, at the same time, the fact that there is so much work to be done. I think it’s really a very moving week for all of us.”The trip begins in Atlanta, where the group will visit the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, the King Center and the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Martin Luther King Jr. preached.Then the group will travel to Birmingham and to Selma, where they will visit a variety of civil rights museums, centers and landmarks, including the Edmund Pettus Bridge and the Brown Chapel.The next three days will encompass the service portion of the trip. For two days, students will work in local schools in Selma and Montgomery. They will also spend a day working with the Equal Justice Initiative, a nonprofit that provides free legal representation to defendants and prisoners.Founded and led by acclaimed lawyer Bryan Stevenson, the Initiative will provide a chance for the USC students on the trip to get a hands-on look at how the color of one’s skin can still affect justice.“It’s interesting because the students see how people are still being jailed, they’re still being oppressed and there are still people in the South having to fight every day to do something about it,” Scott said. “It’s eye-opening.”The final leg of the trip takes place at Tuskegee University, a prominent black college, before returning to Atlanta.Each night of the trip, Conerly makes sure that students have the opportunity to meet USC alumni who have moved or returned to the South. She believes it is an important part of connecting to both the history of the civil rights and to the current lifestyle of many Southern black communities.There are two major reasons that the CBCSA travels to the South every spring. One is to see where the South is now, to see a way of life still steeped in both racism and poverty and to bring that reality back to USC.The other is to see where the civil rights movement came from, to see the roads where leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr. marched and were beaten and jailed.It’s been 50 years since King led a march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, but the city still remains poor and segregated. When students first step foot in the slow-moving city, Conerly says they all ask out the same shocked question — “Do people really live like this?”“It’s a different type of poor than they’ve ever seen before,” Conerly said. “And I think it’s important for students to see how other people live, to see where other people are coming from and to see just how different it is from their own lives.”While in Selma, the groups meet with a variety of USC alumni. The most prominent is a couple who moved from Los Angeles to Selma to reopen its movie theater. Once a major hub of life in Selma, it’s now labeled as “historic,” a relic of the past.When the Selma movie theater first reopened, older locals broke down in tears as they stepped through the front doors. For many older members of the Selma black community, this was the first time at the movies when they weren’t forced to take the back door and climb steps up to the balcony.The theater closed years later, unable to make a profit in a poor community where going to the movies on the weekend is a foreign concept.Students also visit other important landmarks in Selma, such as the home of Richie Jean Sherrod Jackson, where Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders stayed whenever they passed through.At Jackson’s home, they see the table where King sat while planning many of his greatest marches. After hearing about these landmarks for so long, students are finally able to see some of the most important pieces of black history.“You go through this house, and [Jackson] will point at a chair and say, ‘Martin sat there,’ or point at a bucket and say, ‘That’s where Martin would soak his feet after a long day of marching,’” Conerly said. “It makes it real. It’s shocking, how real it makes it all.”One year, during their tour, a student noticed Rep. John Lewis, a former Freedom Rider and an integral leader in the civil rights movement, taking his own tour of the Jackson home. After a moment of hesitation, the group approached Lewis and spoke with him.It is these types of moments that Conerly says make each trip unique and special for the students on it. Although she and Scott have carefully planned out each day of this year’s trip, they know that unexpected surprises are bound to come up — whether this means meeting a former Freedom Rider or simply speaking with someone who can remember listening to Dr. King speak in person.“It’s the type of trip that is going to change these students’ lives,” Scott said. “It makes that big of an impact, and we are incredibly excited to be able to provide that experience.”Correction: A previous version of this article stated that the trip was organized by the Black Student Assembly. It is the Center for Black Cultural and Student Affairs. The Daily Trojan regrets the error.last_img read more
