Back in March, Vulf Records released a six-track EP under a new moniker The Fearless Flyers. The new band—comprised of Vulfpeck bassist Joe Dart, guitarist Cory Wong, drummer Nate Smith, and Snarky Puppy guitarist Mark Lettieri—have released four music video-supported tracks from the self-titled EP so far, with the rest of the tracks available for purchase/download here.In addition to the previously released “Aces of Aces”, “Under the Sea / Flyers Drive”, and “Barbara“, Vulf Records has shared the music video for their sped-up, jammed-out, funkified rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”, featuring guitarist Blake Mills and gospel performer Sandra Crouch.Watch “The Seal Team 6 of funk” take on “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” with special guests below:[Video: Vulf]The new-ish project—which is produced, composed, and mixed by the “Vulfmon” himself, Jack Stratton (bandleader/multi-instrumentalist of Vulfpeck)—is seemingly a “2.0” version of the original Vulfpeck lineup. Basically, any musical group under the Vulf Records establishment will resonate with fans of Vulfpeck, as the brain and tools behind the music will all come from the same place. The Vulf Compressor, indeed, continues its legacy.The full record is available on Bandcamp and features all sorts of musical nuggets. “Introducing the Fearless Flyers” showcases the tight musicianship between the four players, providing the style of playing that fans of Vulfpeck crave from the band’s earlier days. A secondary version of “Barbara” also appears on the record, featuring Sandra Crouch again on the tambourine, as a follow-up to Vulfpeck’s 2012 Vollmich version of the song. There’s also a “kids” version of The Little Mermaid‘s “Under The Sea”.The six-track presentation closes with “Bicentennial”, a clear continuation of the closing groove from Vulfpeck’s “Grandma” track from Mr. Finish Line. Vulfpeck’s soulful original version of the song features Antwaun Stanley on vocals, David T. Walker on guitar, and James Gadson on drums and closes with a 45-second groove that left fans wanting more in 2017. The Fearless Flyers’ “Bicentennial” is the extension of that groove and it features Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Elizabeth Lea on trombone and the voice of Jack Stratton as the “sibilant announcer.”You can own a copy of The Fearless Flyers today for $6, if you didn’t already reserve a copy of the vinyl, here.

Recently, I found myself in the market for a new hairstylist. After doing some homework, I landed on a salon with a great location and enticing service options.Being brave, I said, “Any stylist. First available Saturday appointment, please.” They quickly booked my appointment. Super!Haircut day arrives and I eagerly enter the salon, ready to meet my new stylist. She was friendly, greeted me by name and, best of all, acknowledged that I was new.Everything was going great. With my haircut underway, another employee came over to my stylist and began to complain about her client who had just left. Suddenly, the experience turned sour.This experience left me with a negative impression of not only these two stylists, but the entire salon.As I sat there listening to her describe annoyances with her previous client, I felt more and more awkward.

The new KCCA FC players in a group photo at the StarTimes stadium in Lugogo. Courtesy photo.FOOTBALL–With the departure of several key players that helped them win the league and cup double for the first time in their history last season KCCA FC had to make re-enforcements and that is exactly what they have done.Although the players that have signed for KCCA FC are not big names Mike Mutebi the man responsible for last season’s triumph is confident the new recruits will help his team win a third successive league title.Speaking at the unveiling ceremony, Mutebi said: “Yes, the media will say the players I have signed are not big names but I can assure you, they will get the job done.”This off season, league top scorer Geoffrey Sserunkuma, Ivan Ntege, Brian Majjwega and influential midfielder Tom Matsiko have all left the Kasasiro Boys for greener pastures.“The biggest problem with Ugandan footballers is that they loose the hunger after winning a few trophies and it also happened to some of our senior players,” Mutebi said.“The new players I have brought on board are very hungry for success and I am confident they will replicate it on the field every chance they get,” he added.Asked about the void top scorer Sserunkuma’s exit has left, Mutebi said: “We have signed three FUFA Big League top scorers and I hope they can help curb the Geoffrey Sserunkuma void.”Veteran striker Sserunkuma scored 21 league goals last season but turned down a new contract offer from KCCA this off season to join Zambian Premier League team Buildcon FC.With only up to four days to the new season, the two time Uganda Premier League champions have signed 11 new players from the top three tiers of Ugandan football.Comments
