April 15th, 2015 The Movement Releases New Single “RESCUE” on ROOTFIRE
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything about the reggae scene. I’ve been beaten down, took life for granite and have been pretty disappointed with the genre. Maybe a personal preference but I haven’t been impressed. I know we all have our favorites, and some of your favorites are on the bottom of my list. Which doesn’t mean anything really because it’s a personal opinion. Maybe I have grown up and want more for my listening pleasure. I’ve been out of the loop for quite sometime. I battled months of depression, lost my job, all while having Cystic Fibrosis and having to work harder just to be able to breathe to live a some what “normal” life, whatever that means.
I was scrolling through Facebook and saw the Ad from The Movement and their new single “RESCUE” on Rootfire. Seth, Curtis and the rest of their staff, are blessings in the scene. The few people that have kept me having faith that not all people in the music industry are self centered assholes, who show no gratitude for what you do to support the artist, company, whatever it may be and for that I thank them. BUT I also thank them for having great musical taste, holding artist to higher standards and most importantly for simply giving back whenever they can.
The new tune has arrived just in time on the east coast (finally) for you to be bumping in your car, windows down or in your ear buds while you’re cruising around in whatever means of travel you choose. The tune sends a message of positivity, be happy with everything you have in your life and be blessed that you have it. I’ve searched and searched to find myself, to evaluate my life, the directions I had gone in or didn’t go in because of fear. “Take a second to be grateful, look up in the sky and ask for a lesson, yeah this little life is such a blessing.” It’s true, I took so much for granite, I didn’t feel blessed with what I had because I had so much in my life that I had mixed feelings about. It was selfish and I have opened my heart back up to make adjustments I’ve needed to.
You don’t choose some things in your life. I never chose to have Cystic Fibrosis, (a chronic lung disease and pancreatic issues) I didn’t choose to be attracted to the same sex. These things just happen and you have to learn to live with the cards you’re dealt and be happy with yourself and the life you create.
Everyone has problems in life. Even those people who you think have it all and are very fortunate deal with issues just like you. They’re human and are no more important then you.
“RESCUE” was the perfect antidote to keep you aware, not to forget to be grateful for what you have. Be grateful for the simplest things we take for granite on a daily. The Movement hit it out of the park with this one. Be sure to check out the tune over at ROOTFIRE
