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.

Old face, new coach helps UW goalies

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoFor the first few weeks of the season, Wisconsin goaltenders Shane Connelly and Scott Gudmandson actually had to pay for their coaching. To make matters worse, they had to travel off campus once or twice a week to take advantage of the services of goalie coach Mike Valley.But those days are no more, as Valley will now be working with the team on campus as a volunteer assistant coach on Mike Eaves’ staff. He fills a void left by former assistant Bill Howard, who stepped down as goalie coach in the offseason after 36 years with Wisconsin.A former Badger goaltender himself — he played 33 games in net for UW from 1996 to 1998 — Valley was previously employed by Next Testing, an elite testing service that uses scientific methods to assess hockey talent. But since he dealt with potential recruits, Valley had to quit his job with Next Testing to join his alma mater, a choice that didn’t come easy.“I’m a volunteer coach; it’s not something that puts food on the table,” Valley said. “For me, it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve enjoyed working with guys like [former Badger Brian] Elliott and [former Michigan goalie] Al Montoya in the summer time. But to be in a full-time position is something I’ve wanted to do.”“The big thing for me is he’s been in my shoes,” Connelly said. “He knows what we’re going through. It’s not that long ago that he was doing this.”Eaves doesn’t foresee much change as far as the relationship between Valley and the goaltenders, since he had already gotten familiar with them early in the season.“He’s been working with them,” Eaves said. “It’s a matter of repetition for them. It’s not like he’s starting now. He’s got a running start.”The two Badger goaltenders have gotten off to less than ideal beginnings in the 2008-09 season. Connelly has allowed 4.45 goals per game and is 0-3-1 in four starts, while Gudmandson’s 0-2 record stems from the 6.03 GAA he has experienced in two starts in net.However, Eaves knows that bringing Valley on staff won’t mean an instant fix.“The proof and the cure will be everything coming together,” Eaves said.Valley admitted it had become tough for him and the Badger netminders to effectively work together now that the season is underway. Now that he’ll be with the team on a regular basis, however, that should change.“Having the goaltenders work away from the rink is something that works in the beginning of the season when they had more captains practice,” Valley said. “But now that they’re busy with their school and with limited practice time, it really helps them out for me to be able to come out on the ice three to four times a week. It’s a positive thing for the goaltenders because you can provide a little bit more mentorship.”“It’s all about getting reps on the ice,” Connelly said. “When there’s dead time, he’s flying over there and doing a quick drill with us. Or, at the end today, working on different stuff. It should take my game to the next level.”Valley has been impressed with what he’s seen in Connelly so far, noting the senior’s high confidence level despite facing a high number of shots in his first four games.“I think Shane’s been really good,” Valley said. “Friday’s game (against Minnesota), he stopped 34 shots and played really well and helped us get that point. Obviously, we wanted the win, but we got a point out of it. In Denver he saw 52 shots and has been really, really comfortable.“I talked to Shane about those. Even though he’s seen a lot of shots, even though he’s seen a lot of opportunities, he has to find a way to make that extra save to keep us in it. It doesn’t matter if it’s a 2-on-l, it doesn’t matter if it’s a breakaway. Our job as a goaltender is to come up with that save. Shane’s got to find a way to come up with that save.”But as his team is still winless heading into a weekend series against North Dakota, how have these early games affected Connelly’s confidence?“It’s really good. You confident right now?” Valley asked Connelly as he walked past his coach after practice.“Absolutely,” Connelly responded.“His confidence is real high,” Valley said. “His practices have been really good, his games have been really good. It’s just a matter of getting everything to click now, not only in goal but all over the ice, and that’s coming. It’s a young team, and it’s been a tough start against some good competition.“The nice thing is the guys’ attitudes are up and they can see the light at the end of the tunnel.”last_img read more

Tax Expert: You Will Get Stimulus Check Even if you Owe Taxes

first_img(Washington, DC) — The Treasury secretary says financial relief for the coronavirus fallout is arriving this month. During a White House briefing, Steven Mnuchin announced the economic impact payments would be hitting direct deposit accounts within two weeks. He also reminded Social Security recipients they don’t need to file tax returns to get their share. The payments were part of the economic stimulus package signed by President Trump last month. The money should help Americans pay rent and put food on the table.A paper envelope written with the words “Rent Money $ ” is left tucked in a lighting pole in the Boyle Heights east district of the city of Los Angeles on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. It’s the first of the month, and rent is due for millions of Americans for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak turned the economy upside down. Most states and local governments have stopped evictions to give time for unemployment benefits and federal stimulus checks to arrive. But there is still plenty of worry that even if April’s payment is delayed, the rent will still come due before many industries are up and running again. Nearly 3.3 million people in the U.S. filed unemployment claims for the week of March 16, as the shutdown from the virus started. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)Tax expert, Lawrence Levy of Levy and Associates, explained to Jen and Bill on the South Florida Morning Show that even if you owe taxes, you will still get a stimulus check. But, if you owe child support back payments, you will not.Listen to the full interview with Lawrence Levy hear. He explains all you tax needs. read more

Powered by Firework ~ The matches will be telecast live and exclusive on SONY TEN 1 & SONY TEN 2 channels in India from March 11, 2020~Advertisement The first leg of UEFA Champions League – Round of 16 witnessed thrilling clashes between the 16 teams, vying to mark their places in the quarter finals of this prestigious tournament. The clubs will yet again battle on the field as a part of home and away format, trying their best to keep the aggregate score in their favor. Let’s take a look at the first round of high-octane clashes scheduled for the second leg of Round of 16.Advertisement Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund – PSG are under pressure to perform after losing 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund in Germany but they do possess the talent to turn this Champions League tie around. The French aristocrats looked dangerous for long periods of the second half at Westfalenstadion and were rewarded with a goal from Neymar but Erling Braut Haaland, who is on a sensational goal scoring spree, took his UEFA Champions League tally for the season to ten with two strikes to stun the traveling Paris fans. The 19-year-old became the first teenager to score 10 goals in a Champions League season, having previously netted eight times for RB Salzburg in six Group E games. With England winger Jadon Sancho and 17-year-old Giovanni Reyna also impressing up front in the opening encounter, Dortmund have a youthful and vibrant forward line playing without fear but the French side are usually much stronger on home turf and the likes of Neymar and Mbappe will look to tear down the Dortmund defence with their immense pace and skills.Watch Paris Saint-Germain vs Borussia Dortmund Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 1 and SONY TEN 1 HD on 12th February 2020 at 1.30 am (IST) Advertisement Liverpool F.C. vs Atletico Madrid– Liverpool welcome Atlético Madrid in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 decider and will look to pull off another famous comeback after losing 1-0 away to Atletico Madrid at a raucous Wanda Metropolitano. Diego Simeone’s men put in a display of trademark resilience once Saúl Ñíguez had given them a fourth-minute lead in the first leg, but still fresh in the memory is the manner in which the Reds incredibly overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit against Barcelona in last season’s semi-finals at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp will hope to rekindle the spirit of that amazing night and will look to start on the front foot from the outset in this return fixture. Atlético holds an advantage, but it’s a tenuous advantage with only a draw needed to qualify. Liverpool on the other hand, must break Diego Simeone’s stalwart defense to keep hope alive of winning the European trophy in successive seasons. Watch Liverpool F.C. vs Atletico Madrid Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HD on 12th March 2020 at 1.30 am (IST) RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C. – If there’s a blueprint for how an underdog team can successfully open a two-legged advantage against a quality club, RB Leipzig showcased it to perfection in the first leg against Spurs in North London. Going into the second leg, RB Leipzig looks to be holding all the aces against an injury-hit Tottenham as they welcome the English team to Germany. Even though the German side looked a lot sharper than Spurs in the first leg, Leipzig are far from convincing on their home ground, losing 2-0 to Lyon at this venue and only drawing 2-2 with Benfica in the group stages. Tottenham have a mountain to climb without injured front men Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, but the form of the home team on their home ground will give them a few moments in the game to get a grip on the tie and qualify for the quarter-finals.Watch RB Leipzig vs Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
