Vulfpeck Reveals Eight New Songs And Two Familiar Ones For ‘The Beautiful Game’

first_imgCome October 17th, funky wonders Vulfpeck will release their newest full-length LP, The Beautiful Game. With the band just wrapping up a four-night run through New York from Wednesday – Saturday, fans have been dying to know what music will be featured on the new LP. Today, that changes, as the band has released both the full tracklisting and an excerpt of liner notes from the new album.The band did play one new song – titled “Cory Wong” – from the new album during their SummerStage performance, but have been tight-lipped about everything else thusfar. They also said, on Saturday night, that their performance of “Conscious Club” would be the last time it was played as an instrumental in America, leading us to believe that the version that appears in the new tracklisting has a fresh set of lyrics. This wouldn’t be the first time that Vulfpeck added lyrics to one of their older songs, as “Christmas In L.A.” made its debut as an instrumental on the 2014 album Fugue State before being lyricized for the 2015 album Thrill Of The Arts.In all, the new album has ten songs, eight of which are completely unfamiliar. It’s interesting that the band chose not to play any of them during their Brooklyn Bowl run, but the reward will come when listening to these new songs through fresh ears. The liner notes also indicate a number of featured guests on the album.Check out the tracklisting and liners below, courtesy of the Vulfpeck. You can also find more about the album on the band’s Kickstarter page.You can see the liner notes for the album below:last_img read more

Human Smuggler Gets 30 Years In US Jail After 9 Die

first_imgBy Dialogo December 02, 2011 A Mexican national in charge of a human smuggling ring responsible for the drowning deaths of nine illegal immigrants was sentenced to 30 years in a US prison, prosecutors said. Joel Cardenas-Meneses, 43, was in charge of recruiting illegal immigrants from Central America, arranging their transportation to northern Mexico and then smuggling them across the Rio Grande River to Texas. US officials began investigating the ring after discovering the bodies of seven men and two women who had drowned inside a vehicle that had fallen into an irrigation canal near Hildago, Texas. They determined that the vehicle’s teenaged driver had been driving — as instructed — with the lights off to avoid detection and lost control after making a sharp turn. The victims were illegal immigrants from El Salvador and Honduras. Cardenas-Meneses was arrested in Houston, Texas in February — more than four years after he was indicted on human trafficking charges — and convicted in September.last_img read more
