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

Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals – Highlights & Stats

first_imgDespite a valiant knock of 65 from 46 balls by Marcus Stoinis, Bumrah – who recorded his best T20 figures of 4-14 – returned to remove him, and with it any lingering doubts about the outcome.SCORECARDThe only downside for the defending champions was a groin strain that forced Boult (2-9) off the field after bowling just two overs, making him doubtful for Tuesday’s final in Abu Dhabi.- Advertisement – Having initially taken a back seat, Suryakumar then weighed in, pulling Anrich Nortje for two fours and slamming Ashwin for a big six – but, when De Kock attempted to follow suit, he skied into the waiting hands of Dhawan at long off.Mumbai suddenly found themselves faltering at 101-4 when Suryakumar – having just reached his half-century – hooked Nortje into the hands of long leg and Kieron Pollard (0) fell to an excellent diving catch by Kagiso Rabada.Stoinis (1-5) made further inroads with his first ball, having Krunal Pandya (13) caught on the boundary, but Ishan Kishan (55 not out from 30) and Hardik Pandya exploded into life as they amassed 78 from the last five overs.Pandya (37no from 14) pressed down hard on the accelerator, thrashing successive sixes off Rabada and then inflicting the same punishment on Nortje before Kishan punched another maximum to reach his half-century off the last ball of the innings and lift Mumbai to 200-5.Surpassing that total always looked likely to be a steep task for the Capitals – but the first eight deliveries of their reply rendered it virtually impossible.Shaw was the first to go, caught behind off Boult’s cutter before the New Zealander moved one back to trap Rahane leg before and then Bumrah sent Dhawan on his way with an unplayable yorker.Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer (12) did his best to retrieve the situation with three boundaries – but he became Bumrah’s second victim when he attempted a fourth and drilled it hard into the hands of Rohit at cover.However, Stoinis made good progress and he found a strong ally in Axar Patel, with the pair putting on 71 from 44 balls to give Delhi a glimmer of hope before Bumrah extinguished it once and for all.The Mumbai paceman bowled Stoinis with a delivery that kept low, adding his fourth wicket by having Sams caught behind later in the over – and, despite Patel’s effort of 42 from 33 balls, the Capitals fell well short at 143-8. Delhi will get another opportunity to face Mumbai in the final if they can overcome the winner of Friday’s eliminator between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Cricket.Wily spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (3-29) struck an early blow after Delhi had put the champions in to bat, trapping Rohit Sharma lbw on the back foot for a first-ball duck.At the other end, Quinton de Kock (40 from 25) set off like a train, hammering three crisp boundaries off Daniel Sams’ first over as he and Suryakumar Yadav (51 from 38) added 62 from 37 deliveries.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult wrecked Delhi Capitals’ top order with a devastating spell of bowling to book Mumbai Indians’ place in the IPL final with a 57-run victory.Mumbai had rested the seam pair for their final group game and they returned to the side in style, removing all of Delhi’s top three – Prithvi Shaw, Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan – for ducks inside eight balls.- Advertisement –last_img read more
