Vulfpeck Premieres Funky New Video For “Daddy, He Got A Tesla” [Watch]

first_imgEver the masters of pop-funk, Vulfpeck recently returned with their newest studio effort, The Beautiful Game. In our review, we went in-depth into each track on the album, capturing The Beautiful Game and all of its quirks within the Vulfpeck catalog. At the heart of it all is an insatiable groove, powered by Jack Stratton, Theo Katzman, Joe Dart and Woody Goss.Today, the band has shared their brand new music video for the track “Daddy, He Got A Tesla.” With more of a space-funk Herbie Hancock vibe to it, “Daddy, He Got A Tesla” is a bit of a departure from Vulfpeck’s sound, but they master it all the same. The song includes collaborators Joey Dosik, Pegasus Warning and Jamire Williams, all adding their soulful sounds and musicianship to the tune.Check out the band’s new video, which premiered just now on Facebook, below.last_img read more

Important to obtain breast cancer screening

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady counties would like to take this opportunity to remind your readers about the importance of getting screened for breast cancer. With regular screening, breast cancer is more likely to be detected at an earlier stage when treatment may be most successful. Simply stated, early detection can save lives, and regular screening is the key to early detection.The United States Preventive Task Force Services recommends women ages 50 to 74 years who are at average risk for breast cancer be screened with a mammogram every two years. However, according to data from the New York State Department of Health, there are populations of women who are less likely to have received a mammogram as recommended. These women are the uninsured and those without a regular health care provider.The CSP provides life-saving mammograms to eligible women without health insurance and can help them find a health care provider that they can see regularly. Since our program began, we have helped 2,500 women get screened for cancer in this region. Our program can also help enroll eligible women in the New York State Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program to receive treatment if cancer is found.About one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifeThat means that one out of every eight of The Gazette’s female readers could be at risk for breast cancer. These women are wives, mothers, sisters and friends who are loved, needed, and whose lives matter.We help eligible, uninsured women get free mammograms, and we are here to encourage every woman to get their mammogram.If any woman needs help, call the CSP of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties at 518-841-3726.Suzanne HagadornAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Three seniors who started as seventh-graders providing veteran experience for Amsterdam golfEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

St Ledger keen to return in Germany

first_img “Everyone has come in this week and it’s a clean slate for everyone. I’m sure the manager has ideas and it’s down to each individual to go out there and prove to him that you want to be in the starting XI. “Hopefully he will know I have played quite a few times now and that will stand me in good stead, but we will have to see.” King put his players through their paces in Malahide for the first time on Monday, and stamped his own style on the session as he attempted to get his message across. But as the search for a permanent successor to 74-year-old Trapattoni continued, St Ledger spared a thought for the man who gave him his big chance to step on to the international stage. He said: “Sometimes football fans think the grass is greener on the other side and sometimes, it’s not. “If you look back at it, we qualified for the Euros and we hadn’t in such a long time; we nearly got to the World Cup in South Africa. “On this stage, it’s about winning football games, and that’s what we did. “Obviously, there were low points – the Euros, not winning – but then to get there was great. It was great for the country, it was great for the fans. “But that’s gone now, it’s a new era. We are going to have a new manager and it’s important for every one of us as players. “The new manager will probably be watching the game on Friday, he must have an inkling that he’s interested in the job, so it’s up to us to go out there and show what we can do because we all want to be on this stage playing against the likes of Germany and playing in major tournaments.” The 28-year-old Leicester defender has not kicked a ball for his club since the Capital One Cup win at Wycombe on August 6, his second and final appearance for the campaign to date, because of a knee injury and manager Nigel Pearson’s reluctance to rush him back. However, he is vying for a chance to line up against the likes of Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil and Tony Kroos in Cologne on Friday night as Ireland attempt to gain revenge for their 6-1 mauling by the Germans in Dublin last October as Group C approaches its climax. St Ledger, who has 36 senior caps to his name, could get his opportunity because senior men Richard Dunne and John O’Shea are both suspended, and he insists he is ready if called upon by interim boss Noel King. He said: “I’m as ready as I’ll ever be. It’s probably not an ideal situation with not having played, but sometimes things can’t always be perfect. “I’m generally quite fit, so hopefully that will stand me in good stead. I have been back training for a few weeks now. “Obviously I have not played and I am probably fortunate that I am in the squad with the suspensions, so it’s down to me this week to work hard, get my head down and try to force my way into the starting XI.” Dunne and O’Shea will be available for Ireland’s final qualifier against Kazakhstan at the Aviva Stadium next Tuesday evening, but in their absence, St Ledger and Aston Villa’s Ciaran Clark are the leading candidates to take over in central defence in Germany, although Damien Delaney and Stephen Kelly have both played there in the past. But having made his competitive senior debut in a 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw in Bulgaria under Giovanni Trapattoni in June 2009, that would not faze the former Peterborough and Preston man. St Ledger said: “These are the games you want to play in as footballers, against the best players and against the best teams and test yourself. “When you get results against these teams, it’s a great feeling. We are not going out there on Friday just to be losers or to come second. We are going out there to win the game. Press Association Sean St Ledger is targeting a first start since the opening week of the season in Ireland’s daunting World Cup qualifier in Germany.last_img read more
