Claypool Lennon Delirium Shares Psychedelic Cover Of The Flower Travellin’ Band From Upcoming EP

first_imgOne of the biggest breakout acts of 2016 was The Claypool Lennon Delirium, the unanticipated but fully appreciated collaboration between Les Claypool and Sean Lennon that produced one of the best albums of the year, Monolith of Phobos. While there’s no telling how long Claypool’s side-projects will ever stick around, we do know that there’s more coming from the band in 2017 – as they detail a new release for an upcoming covers EP, Lime and Limpid Green, out August 4th.The new EP includes psychedelic covers of “Astronomy Domine” by Pink Floyd, “Boris the Spider,” by The Who, “The Court of the Crimson King” by King Crimson, and “Satori” by Flower Travellin’ Band. While the band has played these songs over the past year in their live concerts, this release will newly feature studio versions. The EP was previously issued for 2017 Record Store Day and will become available as a limited-edition run of 3,000 on clear vinyl (with green and double-mint splatter, of course).Rolling Stone has shared the first taste of the new release with a music video for the 1971 “Satori” by the Flower Travellin’ Band. Watch it below:“I think the genesis of this band began with Les and I listening to old records together and feeling like our universes were uncannily intertwined,” Sean Lennon told Rolling Stone. “We were both feeling and hearing something that we wanted to do that was deeply inspired by those people who were the most peculiar in their time, like Syd [Barrett]. Since we only had one album as a band, we wanted to add songs to the live show that would illustrate and elaborate upon what the Delirium were all about.”Les Claypool added, “The thought was to play songs that we hadn’t interpreted in the studio prior. Most of these tunes were played extensively live, so they had time to evolve and develop their own greasy little personalities.” Read the full spread here.last_img read more

Holiday Exercise

first_imgNovember and December seem to be the time of year that everyone throws their exercise routines to the wind. Putting together parties, buying presents and preparing tons of good food makes it tough for anyone to set aside time for exercise.The catch is that exercise can make the holidays merrier by relieving some holiday stress. Here are some tips and advice from University of Georgia Cooperative Extension’s Walk Georgia program that will help you keep a healthy routine throughout the holidays.Take a BreakThe constant stress of getting your house ready for the arrival of friends and family can drive anyone over the edge. Take 30 minutes in between errands and take a walk in the brisk winter air or go for a short jog. Short bursts of exercise can give you energy when you’re about to crash. It also produces those much-needed endorphins that can help jump-start that Christmas spirit. A little exercise can have mood-boosting effects, lasting well past the holiday season.Just One More CookieLimiting how much you eat can be tough, especially when you’re surrounded by pecan pie, sugar cookies and plenty of warm casseroles. Instead of grabbing one of those holiday cookies your neighbors made for you every time you walk into your kitchen, take them to work and share them with your co-workers. It will make you feel better about your eating habits and popular around the office.Treat YourselfBalance is key when it comes to the holidays. Too much of anything, whether presents or food, can become problematic. After a Thanksgiving or Christmas feast, you can burn off some those decadent treats by playing a few rounds of football with everyone or taking a long walk around the neighborhood. It is inevitable that you will accumulate some cheat days around the holidays, and that is perfectly fine. Don’t feel bad about having a few heavy and heavenly meals with your loved ones — just make sure you do a little something extra to keep that healthy balance.Set Goals The holidays come and go just like that, but make sure your health doesn’t do the same. After the holidays, make a list of health and exercise goals for the next year and try to stick to it. Trying not to break New Year’s resolutions is something we all struggle with, but remind yourself daily that you will look and feel better by sticking with it.For more advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, visit www.walkgeorgia.org/.last_img read more

Indian Premier League Ashton Turner matches Gautam Gambhir’s horrendous record in IPL after hat-trick of ducks

Prior to his knock in Mohali, Turner was snapped up by Rajasthan Royals for his base price of Rs 50 lakh during the auction in December 2018 and many expected him to perform great feats.In the ongoing 2019 Indian Premier League, Turner’s journey has been a nightmare. In his debut game against Kings XI Punjab at the same venue where he had scored his miraculous 84, Turner mistimed a lofted shot off Ravichandran Ashwin to be caught at long off for a golden duck. In his next game against Mumbai Indians at the Sawai Mansingh stadium in Jaipur on Saturday, Turner was cleaned up by Jasprit Bumrah for yet another golden duck but unlike Mohali, Rajasthan Royals won the match by a close margin.However, Turner’s woeful form in Twenty20s is actually longer.
