Gorillaz Release Video For Never-Before-Heard Song “Sleeping Powder” From ‘Humanz’ Recording Session

first_img[H/T Consequence Of Sound] While Gorillaz released their brand-new album Humanz about a month ago, Gorillaz fans should expect to see more and more new content from the band in the coming months. Damon Albarn previously noted, as reported by Consequence of Sound, that there were still forty to forty-five tracks leftover from the initial Humanz recording sessions, not to mention a brand-new TV show in the works. While fourteen of these leftover tracks will be issued via Humanz‘s deluxe vinyl box set (which will be released later in the summer on August 25th), that still leaves a great number of unaccounted for songs. Today, Gorillaz’s released what we can assume is one of these new tracks from the initial recording of Humanz, with the debut of the song “Sleeping Powder,” which does not appear on any of the track listings from Humanz or its subsequent bonus materials.New Gorillaz Album “Humanz” Is Here With 26 Total Tracks [Stream]Watch Stephen Colbert’s Incredible Sit-In With Gorillaz For “Feel Good, Inc.” On The Late ShowIn the opening moments of the “Sleeping Powder” video, which was released on YouTube, a man says “This is drugs. This is your brain on drugs. Any questions?” accompanied by a lo-fi image of an egg frying, pulling from the iconic anti-drug ad of the 80’s. After the opening title frame that announces that “Sleeping Powder” was written “by 2D,” the song starts with a slow and dreamy piano intro — undoubtedly riffing off the song’s name — before the beat kicks in, making “Sleeping Powder” a laid-back dance number whose energy peaks and falls. You can watch the psychedelic video for the latest from the Gorillaz below, and stay tuned for even more new tunes coming from the Gorillaz’s camp as additional never-before-heard tracks are released in the coming months.last_img read more

2017 Cowbell Regional Cycling challenge set for Monday

first_imgThe annual competition which seeks to harness cycling talents-the Cowbell cycling challenge-has been launched in Accra.This years challenge, which happens to be the maiden edition on regional basis, gets underway on Monday July 3 with Decathlon as the lead sponsor.It is an individual competition open to the general public with over one hundred and fifty professional cyclists expected registered.The Cowbell Cycling challenge is the flagship race of the Cycling Federation of Ghana in collaboration with Promasidor Ghana Limited under its Cowbell brand which is now synonymous with sports.The contest was born out of the desire to have a world class race that local cyclists could participate in every year as a way of taking their cycling careers and performance to a totally new height.With a total prize package of GHc 20,000 for the first fifteen athletes plus a mountain bike as well as jerseys, a glittering trophy and a medal to the ultimate champion, this will be a much improved reward for the winners and participants in relative to the last. The brands manager of Cowbell, Joseph Ashong at the unveiling on Friday has pledged that they will continue their unflinching support for the sport as they hope to contribute towards the growth of lesser-recognized sports in Ghana.“We are developing cycling to the international standard,” he said. “We are given back to the community as part of our responsibility so we are urging everyone to come out on the 3rd of July-which is a holiday in Ghana-and cheer up the cyclists.”Jeffrey Manzan Owusu, The Greater Accra Director of Sports, was full of praise for Cowbell‘s support to cycling which has spanned over a period of ten years.The competition will start at 9am at the Black Stars Square (Independence Square) go through some principal streets of Accra, through Teshie to Tema and then Back to Accra before finally ending the 84 kilometres race at the Junction Mall at Nungua.last_img read more

Lou Williams’ efforts not enough in 119-115 loss to Suns

first_imgLakers point guard D’Angelo Russell and shooting guard Nick Young participated in all of Friday’s shootaround that included full-court non-contact work and 5-on-0 drills. In both drills the players showed progress with their cutting.Both Young and Russell could return as early as Monday in Sacramento as part of the beginning of a seven-game trip. If both players cannot practice fully on Saturday or need more practices before receiving medical clearances to play, the Lakers face some logistical challenges. The Lakers will fly to New York on Tuesday before Wednesday’s game in Brooklyn. That leaves the Lakers with a possible practice on Thursday before Friday’s game in Philadelphia.Nonetheless, Walton said he could schedule some 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 full-contact sessions for Russell and/or Young to evaluate their readiness to return.“We need to see them go live and competitive,” Walton said, “and really cut and fight over screens before we let them out there.”With those absences, the Lakers were on pace to lose early. But then Williams came into the third quarter and changed everything. After the Lakers went 2-of-11 from 3-point range in the first half, it took Williams only 90 seconds in the third quarter to make three of them. He also converted on a four-point play that entailed making one of two fouls shots and then making a 3-pointer off of Thomas Robinson’s rebound.That gave the Lakers a fighting chance, until their deeply rooted issues emerged again. LOS ANGELES >> The main sources of the Lakers’ prolific offense have stayed confined to the training room and the bench. The Lakers’ starting lineup has changed almost by the game. The Lakers’ defense rarely has existed.But through the Lakers’ recent struggles, one significant source of stability has stayed the same. After spending nearly all season impressing the Lakers with his high-volume efficiency and frequent trips to the foul line, Lou Williams fulfilled that same job description once again.The Lakers still fell to the Phoenix Suns in a 115-110 loss on Friday at Staples Center that secured their fifth consecutive defeat. Williams could not draw a four-point play on the final possession, let alone make a 3-pointer as time expired. Williams missed another key 3-pointer as the Lakers trailed 117-113 with 11 seconds remaining. Yet, Williams’ presence prevented the Lakers from falling apart completely.He scored 35 points on 10-of-17 shooting in what marked the third game this season he logged at least 30 points. Williams posted 14 points in the final quarter as the Lakers cut an 18-point deficit to within single digits. And Williams forced Phoenix guard Eric Bledsoe into a shot clock violation as the Lakers trailed 115-110 with 26.4 seconds left. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img But eventually, the Lakers other issues became too strong to ignore.Despite coach Luke Walton’s heavy emphasis on the concept since training camp, the Lakers slipped again defensively as they allowed Eric Bledsoe (24 points), Leandro Barbosa (19), Devin Booker (15), Alex Len (14), Brandon Knight (14) to log double digits.Though Lakers rookie forward Brandon Ingram made a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 115-113 with 17 seconds left, he appeared ineffective in another start at point guard. He had nine points on a 3-of-8 clip.Meanwhile, Jordan Clarkson (14 points), (Julius Randle (14) and Timofey Mozgov (10) combined for 14-of-38 shooting.Fortunately for the Lakers, help might be on the way soon.last_img read more
