My Morning Jacket‘s multi-instrumentalist/jack-of-all-trades Carl Broemel has released a new single from his forthcoming solo LP called 4th of July. The track, called “Snowflake”, is an acoustic track that Broemel told SPIN “…is partially influenced by the interesting but questionable book ‘The Hidden Messages in Water’, where a scientist flash-freezes water drops while participants think happy or sad thoughts. Positive thoughts made beautiful snowflakes and negative thoughts made messy ugly shapes.”The track “Snowflake” is currently available for stream on SoundCloud. Other album tracks that are available for streaming include “In The Dark” (on SoundCloud) and “Sleepy Lagoon” (on Spotify). All three tracks are available as instant-downloads if you pre-order the album on iTunes.Listen to “Snowflake” below!

Share LocalNews Former calypsonian to be ordained as a deacon by: – May 25, 2012 Sharing is caring! Brancker “De Brakes” John. Photo credit: Dominica CalypsoA former Dominican calypsonian who reigned as monarch of that competition will be ordained as a deacon in the Catholic Church this weekend.Brancker Fabian John, popularly known by his calypso name, “De Brakes” was crowned Calypso Monarch in 1997 and although he lost that title in 1998 to Derrick “Hunter” St. Rose, he recaptured that title in 1999.John left Dominica in 2000 for the United States where he embarked on a journey to fulfill a calling which he said he had received “in 1989/1990 after high school”. He has advised that people should know what is God’s calling for their life, which he believes can be achieved through “prayer, silence and meditation”.“I would encourage anyone to do what I did which is first of all to listen and I think everyone no matter at what stage in life, …the first thing that we have to do is listen to the voice of God because each person is called by God to do something, so we have to listen, we have to be aware and that happens through prayer, silence and meditation”.He noted that there are many vocations which persons can get involved in, but explained that they must first pray and seek God’s guidance. “I would encourage any young person, any middle aged person, where ever you are in life to first of all stop and be silent and to pray and to seek the Lord’s guidance because he is calling you to do something; whether that be a religious vocation, or married life or whatever it is the Lord is calling you to do something for his people, so I would ask any person to stop and pay attention to the voice of God”.Although he sought to encourage young people to get involved in the work of God, he said they do not have to “necessarily follow my footsteps into priesthood”.“It would be beautiful if more men would become priests because the church needs men to come to the altar of God to serve the people of God, but not everyone is called to priesthood”.He will be ordained as a deacon on Sunday during an Ordination Mass in his home town of Colihaut. Bishop of Roseau, Gabriel Malzaire will officiate at that service.According to John, he will in essence be “married to the Church” on Sunday.“Mass will happen as usual but during the Homily, the Ordination Rite will occur. A number of beautiful things will be done during the Rite. Bishop Malzaire will ask me a number of questions and the similarity will be to a wedding ceremony and I will respond to the questions “I do, I do with the help of God” so it very much resembles a marriage ceremony because that’s what it is”.He noted that Dominicans can continue calling him “De Brakes” as he knows it is out of “affection” and that is “deeply appreciated”. His hit songs include; “Remember me the Malaway”, “Keep the Candles Burning”, “Jam De Brakes on Dem” and “Workers”.He encourages people to attend the mass and pay attention to the symbolism that will be taking place.Dominica Vibes News 50 Views no discussions Share Tweet Share read more
