PREMIERE: Vinegar Mother Shares Delightfully Spacey Debut Record, ‘PHASES’

first_imgIn a sonically inspiring middle group where space rock and jazz fusion meet, you’ll find Vinegar Mother, the high-octane quintet hailing from Brooklyn, NY. Coming together in 2015, the lineup is comprised of Julia Zivic (vocals/lyrics), Itamar Gov-Ari (keyboard), Jason Zivic (drums), Mike Roninson (bass), with Chris Mazuera joining as lead guitarist late last year. Today, Live For Live Music is pleased to share their debut record, PHASES, ahead of its official release tomorrow. Listen below:<a href=””>PHASES by Vinegar Mother</a>For PHASES, the band wanted to keep true to a collaborative spirit and they revel in their ability to meld genres seamlessly. Take the opening track, “Moon Tomb,” for example; from the get-go, Vinegar Mother pulls the listener in with a groovy, R&B atmosphere, but by the 3rd track, “NEXUS,” they’ve gone and added spacey electronic elements. “Palm Sweat,” the album’s 5th track is a breezy first-date anthem for the modern millennial, as Zivic’s sultry vocals croon “Palm sweat / I’m in debt / I’m in a dilemma I just do not get.” “Shame” is reminiscent of Hiatus Kaiyote with elements of prog-rock elevating the band’s individual style.Throughout the record, Zivic’s powerhouse vocals swirl above the virtuoso talents of the band. The themes and lyrics on PHASES are definitely clever and encapsulates the human experience in modern times.Zivic shares: “In PHASES, Vinegar Mother believes it has a perfect blend of impressive instrumentation and honest emotion. The band would like all to journey through the album in song order to hear the interesting transitions and thoughtful flow of PHASES. In that way, Vinegar Mother hopes each composition reaches out to the listener and invites them inside the world of the leading lady. The lyrics, the musicality, and the ever-changing mood will hopefully make you go through ‘phases’ of your own.”For more information on Vinegar Mother, and for a list of upcoming tour dates, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Angels pick up catching depth by claiming Kevan Smith on waivers

A right-handed hitter, Smith hit .292 with a .348 on-base percentage in 52 games last season.If he could repeat that offensive performance, it would be an upgrade for an Angels team that didn’t get much offense out of the catching position in 2018.

Twenty-five Years ago Europe and the World met the Football BiH

first_imgThe national football team of BiH achieved the greatest success since the recognition of the Football Association of BiH by FIFA and UEFA when they qualified for the World Cup 2014 that was held in Brazil.However, 21 years before the greatest success of our national team, only few people even knew about the country that was struggling for its survival back then, and let alone its football players. On this day, 25 years ago, our national football team played its first, although informal, match.“The opponent” or the host to the selection of a war country was FC Genk from Belgium, and our team won that match with the score 3: 1.Thirteen days after the match with Genk, the best BH football players played another friendly match in Koblenz (Germany) against Kaiserslautern, in which our national team was defeated with the result 4: 1.The then team of BiH included: Enver Lugusic, Merdan Ibrahimovic, Anto Jakovljevic, Mirsad Baljic (Zurich), Refik Sabanadzovic (PAOK), Suad Katana (Genk), Faruk Hadzibegic (Sochaux), Davor Jozic (Cesena), Mehmed Bazdarevic (Sochaux), Demir Hotic (Kaiserslautern), Blaz Sliskovic (Pescara), Safet Susic (PSG), Haris Skoro (Zurich), Semir Tuce (Luzern), Meho Kodro (Real Sociedad) Predrag Jurić (Atletic Marabella), Husref Musemic, (Twente), Senad Merdanovic (Autobum), Mirza Kapetanovic (Kickers Offenbach), Ismet Mulabdic (Sibenik), Ibrahim Duro (Sibenik) and Edin Hadzialagic.It is interesting that four football players who played for BiH in Genk back then performed the function of the coach later. After Hadzibegic and Sliskovic, Safet Susic achieved the greatest success and went to the World Cup, and after him came Mehmed Bazdarevic.(Source: read more
