Phil Lesh & Friends, ALO, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Jolie Holland Members Release Debut Album As ‘Magic In The Other’

first_imgToday, Magic In The Other has released their debut album titled What We Know Is Possible. For those unfamiliar, Magic In The Other is an all-star trio composed of Bay Area heavy hitters. Led by drummer Ezra Lipp (Phil Lesh & Friends, Sean Hayes) and featuring bassist Steve Adams (ALO, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers) and guitar wizard Roger Riedlbauer (Jolie Holland), the band tends to err toward the side of indie-rock. However, the group members’ extensive resumes clearly have influenced the band’s sound, with Magic In The Other relishing fearless and bold improvisation while creating an emotionally resonate and highly danceable sound. It’s appropriate that the mantra underlying the entire project being “it is in the unknown where the most potent ground lays for magic and discovery.”For What We Know Is Possible, Lipp, Adams, and Riedlbauer headed to John Vanderslice‘s legendary San Francisco analog studio, Tiny Telelphone. Recorded at the tail end of 2017, the group’s debut album is a triumph, particularly considering that it was recorded less than a calendar year since the band’s initial formation. Despite that relatively short time, Magic In The Other has always been known for its impeccably tight performances—a product, no doubt, of the group’s high-caliber lineup of musicians plus the band’s rigorous rehearsal and gigging schedule.As explained in a press release, for these recording sessions,The material was still fresh with band arrangements constantly evolving over the course of the year. Some of the flagship songs on the album (i.e. Light In My Window, Loveencee) were brought in as last-minute additions by Ezra, barely making it in time for the sessions with much to be worked out in the studio. Ezra knew he wanted to work with his longtime friend, often bandmate (Kacey Johansing, Mohsen Namjoo) and producer/engineer extraordinaire James Riotto (Geographer, Thao), who proved to be an invaluable asset in crafting the sonic soundscape of What We Know Is Possible. Recorded to all analog tape, the focus had to be on capturing the most magical performance rather than doing a bunch of takes and slicing something together in post-production. Between every song, drums were swapped out and re-setup in fresh orchestrations; tape-loops were created; different amps, basses, guitars, synths and glockenspiels were utilized; and Riotto worked his magic with pre-amps and analog effects in the control room. As a result, each track on WWKIP stands out as a singular sonic experience contributing to the cohesive sum of the record.Today, Magic In The Other releases its debut album, the highly anticipated What We Know Is Possible. Solidifying the band as a force to be reckoned with, the album’s nine tracks combine together to offer a delectable, cohesive work of art. Take a listen to the full album for yourself below.

Your brand is your consumers

first_imgIn credit unions, we tend to spend a lot of time talking about what the brand says about us (our financial institution). This is certainly important as the brand must be an accurate reflection of your unique retail culture and environment.However, a critically important element of the brand mix is sometimes overlooked. What exactly does your brand say about your consumers? What does your brand (in its entirety) say about the men and women who choose your credit union as their financial institution? What does this say to them about themselves and, just as importantly, what does this say about them to their extended circle of friends, family and colleagues?Consumers choose to do business with a particular brand for a reason. Sometimes it’s price (think Southwest Airlines). Sometimes it’s ease of access (think Amazon). Sometimes it’s experience (think Disney). Often, it is a combination of these (and other) elements. So when creating and living your financial institution’s brand, you must consider what that choice represents about your consumers. Are they choosing you because you have the fastest loan turnaround decision time in town? Because you offer the most branches and/or the best online access? Or do they prefer you over the competition because of the unique cultural environment offered by your brand? continue reading » 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Conte upset by lack of credit for champions’ run

first_imgHowever, it still leaves them third, 14 points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who have won a record 16 successive league matches.“We won a difficult game and I want to remember that in the last ten games we won eight, drew one and lost only one,” said Conte.“If someone said to me ‘in the next ten games are you ready to sign for these results’, I’d say ‘I’m ready!’“Someone is forgetting this run because we see that there is another team that is winning every game.”The win would have been more convincing with better finishing.Conte wants his team to be more clinical in front of goal after complaining that single-goal victories do not allow him, his team or the Chelsea fans to relax.Chelsea had 24 shots against Southampton, an average of one every four minutes, but only eight were on target, and only Alonso’s sublime free-kick was able to beat Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster. Forster also pulled off several good saves and Pedro saw a deflected effort hit the base of the post, but Chelsea were guilty of misses, including a close-range effort from Cesc Fabregas that went through Forster’s legs but rolled across the goal and past the far post.“It was only 1-0 (although) we had many chances to score the second goal so you could be more relaxed,” said Conte.“I am very happy because I saw commitment and we finished with a clean sheet.“But for sure this season I think that we have created many chances but we must be more accurate with our finishing.“Because when you score more than one goal you can be more relaxed.”That absence of accuracy put more pressure on the defence and although they restricted Southampton to a handful of chances, Thibaut Courtois was forced to make two good saves from Southampton substitute Charlie Austin.“We had to pay attention to Southampton because they’re a good team with young players who are very fast,” said Conte.“But I’m happy because my players played the game with great concentration and we deserved to win.”Share on: WhatsApp Conte upset by lack of credit for champions’ runLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes that Manchester City’s run of victories has denied his team the credit they deserve for their own recent good spell.A narrow but deserved 1-0 victory for the Premier League champions over a defensive Southampton, which came thanks to Marcos Alonso’s free-kick on the stroke of half-time, made it eight victories and a draw from their last ten matches.last_img read more
