“For a band in its third decade… Death Cab hasn’t lost its gift for pairing Gibbard’s soft ruminations with propulsive arrangements that know just when to sparkle and sway. But even more importantly, Gibbard himself still sings with a sense of purpose, keenly articulating a distinct swirl of nostalgia, loss and hope for new beginnings.” — NPR Music

My Brightest Diamond

Shara Nova, a classically trained vocalist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist who records dazzling, shapeshifting music as My Brightest Diamond, has always felt like an outsider.  Over the course of four groundbreaking albums, she has resisted the conventions of genre, blending elements of rock, art pop, and chamber music into a sound totally her own. While fiercely independent, she like everyone else, still desires connectedness.  This tension is at the core of her new album—A Million And One—where she has once again reinvented herself.

Where did it all begin?  Shara always knew she wanted to be a musician.  She grew up in a family of traveling evangelicals, and together they crisscrossed the country, her father leading church choirs and her mother playing organ.  When Shara was a teenager, they settled in a city outside Detroit.  It was the early ‘90s, and hip-hop and soul were on the airwaves.  Shara listened to everything from Run DMC to Stevie Wonder to Anita Baker and K C & the Sunshine Band.  After studying opera, she moved to New York City, where she formed My Brightest Diamond in 2006, releasing her critically acclaimed debut album, Bring Me The Workhorse.

A Million And One sprung from a period of personal transformation for Shara.  It comes just four years after her marriage came to an end. (Literally: Nova translates to ‘new’ in Latin.)  And was written during a time that Detroit was going through a rebirth of its own.  Shara returned to Michigan in 2008 and settled in Detroit, a city whose rich musical legacy—from Motown to the White Stripes—has always been an animating force for her.  This time around, she sought to honor the city with music of her own.  A Million And One is an homage to the sounds of Detroit, a love letter of sorts, but also a visceral trip backwards in time, to Shara’s formative teen years.  “The album examines the quest for my individuality and the search for a deeper relationship to my body, my neighbors, and to the planet,” she says.

Each gem-like song is distinct, from the anthemic opener “It’s Me on the Dance Floor,” to the techno-infused “Supernova,” which calls to mind the work of pioneering Detroit producer Carl Craig.  “You Wanna See My Teeth,” is a twisting, searing meditation on the death of Trayvon Martin.  The album’s ten tracks represent a departure from the lush instrumentation of My Brightest Diamond’s previous work and into leaner, more raw territory, with beats and synths.  Shara produced the album with the help of The Twilite Tone (Common, Gorillaz, Kanye West) and it was mixed by Andrew Scheps (Adele, Lana Del Rey, Beyoncé).  Anchoring each song is the relationship between Shara’s vocals and drums from Earl Harvin (Seal, Sam Smith).  Reborn free of ornament, Shara’s voice has never been more vulnerable—or more powerful.

  25. Borrowing money is a big commitment no matter the amount, which is why it is important to protect both parties with a loan agreement in place. A loan agreement not only details the terms of the loan, but it also serves as proof that the money, goods, or services were not a gift to the borrower. That is important because it prevents someone from trying to get out of repayment by claiming this, but it can also help you ensure that it is not an issue with the IRS later. Even if you think you may not need a loan agreement with a friend or family member, it is always a good idea to have this in place just to make sure there are no issues or disagreements over the terms later that could ruin a valuable relationship. https://baysidecityrp.com/community/profile/shawnmelendez12/ PNB Platinum Mastercard We specialize in hard to find items Debit Cards.

  26. Luxembourg We’ll throw it to Nike anyways… Nike’s inspiration: Wes Unseld helped define the franchise’s days in Baltimore, its move to Washington, and its 1978 championship season. The red stripes atop a blue base pay homage to the classic Bullets uniforms from the ‘60s and ‘70s, and Unseld’s iconic 1968 season—when he earned both the league’s MVP and Rookie of the Year honors. The royal blue base color and jersey number set are an ode to the teams of the 2000s, and gold makes its return to the uniform set, trimming the edges of the jersey numbers. The “Washington” wordmark across the jersey’s chest is a remixed take on the look that highlighted the team’s memorable “Stars & Stripes” run in 2016-17.

They bounced back with a win over Leeds United but their joy shortlived as they against had to taste a defeat at the hands of Brentford. Since then they have defeated Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa. Spurs looked to be launching an unlikely title challenge with an unbeaten start to the season until back-to-back defeats against Liverpool and Leicester brought them back down to earth. Defending Premier League champions Liverpool are certainly not experiencing the season many expected them to have, with some previously tipping the Reds to start a dynasty following their dominant title win. Instead, Jurgen Klopp’s side have faltered and current sit eighth, facing an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League next season.
