Emancipator Releases New Album, ‘Mountain Of Memory’ [Stream]

first_imgDouglas Appling, the Portland-based electronic producer best known as Emancipator, continues to refine and capitalize on his creative ethos with the release of his latest studio album, Mountain of Memory.Recorded in his Mt. Hood, OR studio, Mountain of Memory marks Appling’s sixth studio album overall and his first studio release in three years since the 2017 album, Baralku. Released on Loci Records, Mountain Of Memory features 14 fresh tracks including “Labrinyth”, “Iron Ox”, and “Himalayan”, which were released as surprise singles over the course of last two months in anticipation of Emancipator Ensemble‘s now-postponed Spring tour.The new album displays Appling’s unique style with elements of mid-tempo dance grooves, solid hip-hop beats, acoustic guitars, classical violin, Persian dilruba, Baroque flutes, opera singers, and a variety of percussion elements to accent the producer’s melodic sound.As Appling explains of the new release, “This collection of songs is expansive in its range of sounds while continuing to include many collaborative voices. If this body of work is a mountain, the recordings that comprise it are a geological archive of expression. They have alchemized over several years and the songs are the product of these processes. The album has a loose narrative of rising from the swamps, to the summit of a mountain, and the journey of enlightenment in between. By the end of the album, you are standing atop the Mountain of Memory.”Emancipator, along with the rest of the music industry, was forced to postpone the Spring Emancipator Ensemble tour until the summer, so fans will have to wait until July to hear the new album live. The ensemble—comprised of Appling (production/guitar), Ilya Goldberg (violin), Colby Buckler (drums), Mub Fractal (bass), and Asher Fulero (keys)—will now kick off their tour in July.

Back to the future

first_imgThe Backyard Golf SocietyAfter an absence of several weeks, due to the apparent inability of the remaining members to write English composition, the Backyard Golf Society is once again able to report on our weekly outing at Emerald G.C.  The scribe has been out of the country and with several other regulars away for various reasons no reports have been submitted, but now we are back, at least for a while. Right, on to the game.  The winner this week was ‘Yaya’s Delight’ with 37 points, himself just back from yet another romantic adventure with the wifey to Vietnam.  The near-pin prize went to ‘Foos yer Doos Cowe’ with a stunning effort to 4 feet and of course he proceeded to miss the birdie putt.The 5 hole rollover from the last game was won by ‘The Quiet Man’ and he also won the most skins with 5.  ‘Yaya’s Delight’ and ‘Foos yer Doos’ won 4 each, Jimmy ‘2 Stone’ won 3, Golden Trowel’s Boyfriend (suffered badly from another “I am only having a few” night at the Jomtien market bar complex) won 1 and there is 1 rolled over to the next week. The hot weather left the players quite tired but we are sure to see a more enthusiastic response in the upcoming weeks.last_img read more

Morning Mountain could change hands

first_imgBy Timothy Schafer, The Nelson Daily The future of Morning Mountain may lie in the hands of the Nelson Cycling Club. The Regional District of Central Kootenay holds tenure on the controlled recreation area on the Crown land that used to be the Morning Mountain (Blewett) Ski Hill — and still owns property at the base of the former ski hill — but may be looking to hand that tenure over to the city’s cycling club. Community Services general manager for the RDCK, Joe Chirico, said the land used for the hill hasn’t been utilized for skiing for many years. As a result, they have been having “issues” with people trespassing on the property and they have been looking to find someone who would actively manage it. That someone could be the Nelson Cycling Club, Chirico said. “The cycling club has expressed an interest in being on the property for recreational purposes,” he said. “Lots of the trails in the Giveout Creek area would finish on the Morning Mountain property.” Over the last few years, the cycling club has held their annual fall mountain bike event — the Fat Tire Festival — on Morning Mountain, as well as extensively used the mountain biking trails above the hill in the Giveout Creek area. “They have shown interest as an active group to mange the property, … so we are looking to formalize an agreement with them,” he said. “It’s in the works but not near completion.” A meeting amongst Area E director Ramona Faust, Area F director Ron Mickel, Chirico and the RDCK’s regional park planner to discuss the options for dispensing and allocating the ski hill funds and signage is the next step in the process.

House Budget Committee Approves Tool for Tax Reform Phase Two

first_imgThe House Budget Committee has approved a tool that Republicans could use for tax reform phase two. A fiscal year (FY) 2019 budget resolution cleared the committee on June 21 by a 21-to-13 vote.A budget resolution, if approved by both chambers, would allow Congressional Republicans to approve tax reform phase two without Democratic support, like the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) (P.L. 115-97). The resolution could be used as the legislative vehicle for a tax bill to be approved under the reconciliation process with a simple GOP majority.Tax Reform Phase TwoHouse Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Tex., has said a phase two tax cuts “outline” will likely be unveiled by August. Previously, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., predicted that the House will approve the measure before midterm elections in November.New Budget Resolution – New Tax BillThe House Republican FY 2019 budget resolution, Budget for a Brighter American Future, calls for extending “pro-growth” provisions of the TCJA. Section 403 of the budget resolution text states that the Budget Committee chair may adjust budgetary levels in accordance with a Ways and Means Committee bill that extends pro-growth tax policies of the TCJA.Individual Tax Cuts. Brady has consistently stated that tax reform phase two will focus on the individual side of the tax code. Further, making permanent the individual tax cuts enacted under the TCJA will be the “centerpiece,” of a phase two bill, Brady has told reporters. Additionally, the 20 percent passthrough deduction is also expected to be made permanent by the new bill. These TCJA provisions were enacted temporarily through 2025 in accordance with the Senate’s reconciliation rules. Under the Byrd rule, a measure must not increase the deficit beyond a 10-year budget window.Democratic CriticismCongressional Democrats remain largely united in their criticisms of the TCJA and House FY 2019 budget resolution. Although Brady has stated he was hopeful for Democratic support on a phase two tax bill, Republicans may be gearing up to fast track legislation with only Republican votes through reconciliation, similar to the TCJA.“Six months ago, in the dead of the night, the GOP jammed through the [TCJA] lavishing tax cuts on big corporations and the wealthiest few,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a June 22 tweet. Likewise, Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., criticized the TCJA for “exploding the deficit.” According to Hoyer, the House’s FY 2019 budget resolution proposes paying for tax cuts for the wealthy by cutting health care and education.Path ForwardHouse Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack, R-Ark., has reportedly said that House leadership has not yet made the decision to use the budget resolution for a new tax bill. At press time, Brady’s office did not respond to an inquiry by Wolters Kluwer on June 22 about procedural intent for phase two legislative efforts.By Jessica Jeane, Wolters Kluwer News StaffLogin to read more tax news on CCH® AnswerConnect or CCH® Intelliconnect®.Not a subscriber?

Rodwell has competition for Roma

first_imgJack Rodwell isn’t the only free agent undergoing medical tests with Roma, as Marcel Buchel is also ‘auditioning’ for a contract. The Giallorossi are in the middle of an injury crisis, with long-term problems for Lorenzo Pellegrini, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Amadou Diawara, Bryan Cristante and Davide Zappacosta. There is above all a lack of midfielders, so the club is going back on the market for free agents who can sign immediately rather than wait for the January transfer window. It has already been reported that English player Rodwell is in Rome for medical tests, but it seems he is not the only one. According to Il Messaggero newspaper, Liechtenstein international Buchel is also in the Italian Capital for a series of medicals. Coach Paulo Fonseca will decide over the next few days whether to sign one or both of these midfielders. Unlike Rodwell, Buchel spent practically his entire career in Italy with Siena, Cremonese, Juventus, Lanciano, Bologna, Verona and Empoli. He has 66 Serie A appearances under his belt, plus 80 in Serie B and 24 at Serie C level.

The football played by Big Sam was awful, if it could even be called football,” Vlasic told Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti.”In such football I do not have a place. The football team was terrified by everything, the fans mostly. This season, Marco Silva plays different, much nicer football, but has not got results.”It is true that Everton did not make an expected breakthrough but at least fans now look at the normal football in which the guys, through their actions, are trying to score and win.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
