Starting today, Respect My Art is available for purchase via iTunes and streaming on AppleMusic and Spotify.Listen to “Don’t Eat Your Fingers,” the lead single from Organ Freeman’s new album, Respect My Art, below via Spotify:Comprised of Rob Humphreys (drums), Erik Carlson (guitar), and Trevor Steer (organ/keys), the young band has already begun to make a reputation for themselves in the funk/jam scene with their unhinged live performances and eclectic, technically proficient recordings. Respect My Art is the band’s second release, following their 2015 self-titled record, Organ Freeman. The band’s newest effort leads the them largely in a new direction, as they meld EDM electronics with traditional organ trio instrumentation.Of the new record, Steer explains, “Our goal for this album was to try to create the biggest, most expansive sound we could as a three piece, so instead of writing and arranging with the instrumentation in mind, we decided not to shy away from layering or sounds that wouldn’t normally be considered in an organ trio setting.”For Respect My Art, Organ Freeman ventured outside of the standard drums-keys-guitar lineup of an organ trio and enlisted some heavy hitters to join in on the magic. They invited Theo Katzman of Vulfpeck, as well as Dave Brandwein of Turkuaz, alongside bassist Sean Hurley (Vertical Horizon), trumpet player Sean Billings (Jungle Fire), alto saxophonist Woody Mankowski (The Muller’s Wheel) and tenor saxophonist Jesse McGinty to fill out various tracks on the album, delving deeper into previously uncharted territory for the band.However, one aspect of the album does not–thankfully–seek out uncharted territory ia the issue of song names. As an instrumental band, the names of the songs are largely open to interpretation. On Respect My Art, the band’s song names are once again hilariously engaging. With Organ Freeman, bizarre and amusing titles like “Byrd vs Fish.” “Got Change for a Nickel?,” “Don’t Eat Your Fingers,” “E.T. AF,” and “Putin and I Get Along Fantastic” pull the listener in, and the band’s explosive musicianship grabs them by the chin, slaps them across the face, and instantly converts them into a fan.You can listen to Organ Freeman’s brand new studio record, Respect My Art, below via Spotify:last_img read more

Dakar: Peterhansel takes stage but Sainz retains lead

first_img Loading… Stephane Peterhansel won the sixth stage of the Dakar rally on Friday as his Mini team-mate Carlos Sainz retained the overall lead. Brabec won the motorbike section of the 477 kilometre stage to Riyadh. Stephane Peterhansel climbs one of the dunes en route to stage victory in Riyadh. Bobby Patton, co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team, crashed out of his first Dakar after four kilometres. The race news service reported that the accident left “his co-pilot with back and torso injuries.” Frenchman Peterhansel finished one minute 35 seconds ahead of Spaniard Sainz.Advertisement Defending champion Nasser Al-Attiyah of Qatar was third in his Toyota, 3min 22sec off the lead, with Saudi driver Yazeed Al Rajhi warmly greeted by fans as he finished fourth in another Toyota a further 3min 20sec back. Former Formula One champion Fernando Alonso was sixth in his Toyota, 7min 56sec behind Peterhansel. Sainz increased his lead in the overall standings to 7min 46sec over Al-Attiyah. Peterhansel is third, 16min 18sec behind Sainz. Two-time Formula One champion Alonso is 16th, more than three hours off the pace. Truck category leader Andrey Karginov takes to the air , co-driver Andrey Mokeev and Igor Lenonov compete during the Stage 6 of the Dakar 2020 between Ha’il and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on January 10, 2020. The stage started over fast, flat sands but there were dunes later on.“Today was a long stage, 477 kilometres, so it’s long. It was fast but sometimes we crossed some dunes, so it was slow, fast, slow, fast,” 13-time Dakar winner Peterhansel said.“The biggest problem for me is that with these high speeds you need to be really concentrated a lot. You are not physically tired but it’s more mentally tiring.”Al-Attiyah said the Minis had an advantage over his Toyota.“We are really going at the maximum and the Mini buggy is too fast compared to a 4×4,” he said. “We’ll see next week. It will be tougher.”Saudi entrant Al Rajhi continued his strong showing despite mechanical difficulties.“I am happy,” he said. “I’m from Riyadh. I have a lot of fans here and I enjoyed it a lot so thanks to them for coming.”“Today was not an easy day. After the start we had a leak of oil and we were scared because there was a crack and I was scared all the oil would leak out. But taking care and taking it easy was the most important.”Brabec grabbed his second stage victory in the motorbikes, finishing 1min 34sec ahead of Honda team-mate Spaniard Joan Bareda. Austrian KTM rider Matthias Walkner was third at 2min 45sec.center_img Read Also: Mr Dakar wins stage 4 as Sainz keeps the lead in Saudi“It was a long stage,” Brabec said. “It was a big one, the first real stage of 100 per cent sand.

Beleaguered Bale kept out of Real Madrid squad for final league game

first_imgMADRID: Forward Gareth Bale has been left out of the Real Madrid squad for their last La Liga match of the season.Bale, who cut an awkward figure during Real’s celebration of their 34th title win, has hardly played for the Spanish giants this year. He has all but disappeared since the league resumed post the coronavirus-induced lockdown. Bale has been an unused substitute in Real’s last five LaLiga matches and his behaviour, while sitting in the stands during matches, has drawn ire of the fans on social media. While his appearances have been on a steady decline in recent years, Real manager Zinedine Zidane seems to have ignored the Welshman altogether since Bale posed with a banner that mockingly read “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In That Order.” while celebrating a victory with Wales. Bale has been constantly linked with a move back to the Premier League and it remains to be seen whether Zidane includes him in the squad for Real’s remaining Champions League games. Bale has been an important part of the side that won four Champions League titles in five years, famously scoring an overhead kick to give Real the lead against Liverpool in the final of the 2017/18 season.
