Funk-pop masters Vulfpeck have continually impressed throughout 2016, working their way into our hearts with appearances at festivals and venues across the country (and even across the pond!). As promised, the band has fulfilled their one-record-per-year testament with the release of The Beautiful Game.Though industry practice is to release albums on Fridays, Vulfpeck puts their anti-industry approach at the forefront by releasing the album today, Monday October 17th. The new release features 10 original tracks, only a handful of which (like “Dean Town, premiered last week) have been heard.Fortunately, the band has put their album on Spotify, so we can stream it in full via the player below. Enjoy!In support of the new album, Vulfpeck held a “Telethon” event last night, which saw them occupy Jack Stratton’s backyard, while Theo Katzman roasted a frozen chicken and several friends stopped by to either play music or discuss Korean food during a Facebook live stream. Sunset yoga and chicken soda were also things that happened, as was the premiere of “El Chepe” and a failed attempt at a ramen to-go order, which ultimately saw Theo go and pick it up himself. If you ever wanted to watch Vulfpeck’s music synced to hours of dog footage, peep the videos below. Congratulations to Vulfpeck for reaching their goal of $100,000. The 2016 release features a ton of new guests, including debuts from Laura Mace, Bethanni Grecynski, Jamire Williams, Michael Winogrand, Pegasus Warning, Adam Levy, and Rich Hinman. The Beautiful Game will also feature some of our favorite returning guests: guitarist Cory Wong, keyboardist Joey Dosik from “Game Winner”, “Back Pocket” vocal contributor Christine Hucal, and of course, the “Funky Duck” himself, Antwaun Stanley.

Stuff co.nz 28 June 2015Naked and near-naked women are being used to hawk raffle tickets in Auckland pubs, even though there are sometimes children dining with their parents in the hotels.The “tits and tickets” promotion sees strippers used to sell tickets for meat trays to raise money for local sports clubs. The woman are usually in their underwear and on occasions topless or entirely nude.The Albany pub has hosted the event for more than 10 years and owner Adrian Donald was comfortable with the arrangement and confident children in the establishment with parents and guardians would not accidentally get an eyeful.Though he would not discuss activities that went on inside the pub, Donald stressed that the two areas of the bar – the restaurant, and the adjoining sports bar where the raffle was held – were “two very different sides of the business”.However, witnesses said they had seen children walking through from the restaurant to the bar area as the bikini-clad women sold their meat raffles.Family First spokeswoman Sue Reid described the raffles as”cheap and degrading”, and evidence of “the sexualisation of the family meal”.“What message is this sending young women and to young men. Is this the way to treat women?”Reid, a mother, said she was particularly concerned if children could accidentally see the show, leaving parents with some difficult explaining to do.http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/69757452/Strippers-sell-meat-raffles-as-families-eat-dinner
