Big Gigantic Introduces Soulful Vocals In Smokin’ New Track [Listen]

first_imgColorado’s Big Gigantic have shared with us the first original single in over a year, entitled “The Little Things.” The dynamic duo, consisting of Dominic Lalli (saxophonist/producer) and Jeremy Salken (drummer), brought on the vibrant vocals of singer-songwriter Angela McCluskey for the vibey new track, which apparently came together in an ironic twist of fate.“I heard her singing on a Telepopmusik song that popped up on my Pandora station one day. I absolutely loved her voice and hit her up right away to see if she wanted to collaborate on some music,” Lalli explains. “We worked on a song a couple years back that we never ended up finishing and earlier this year, I came across the vocals again. They happened to fit quite nicely over this new song I was working on so we switched some stuff around, added a few lyrics and this new song was born!”The soulful, smoky voice matches this vibe-heavy track all the way through. Listen for yourself:The track is available as a free download on Big Gigantic’s website. Go out and catch their live tour this Spring:last_img read more

Morrison facing assault charges

first_imgWest Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison has been charged with assaulting two women. He has since been loaned out by West Ham to Birmingham and, more recently, QPR. West Ham declined to comment when contacted by Press Association Sport. Despite being touted as a bright prospect at Old Trafford, Morrison only appeared in the League Cup before Ferguson took the decision to allow him to leave. West ham boss Sam Allardyce took him to Upton Park but he was soon shipped out to Birmingham on loan, a move that the 59-year-old felt helped Morrison develop his attitude. Upon his return to Upton Park, Morrison established himself in the West Ham first team and was one of their better performers in the early stages of last season. He scored a memorable goal in a 3-0 win at Tottenham which was voted as goal of the season by Hammers’ fans before a niggling groin injury and a drop in form saw him lose his place in Allardyce’s side. Morrison picked up the first of his four England Under-21 caps in a 4-0 win over San Marino in October and was subject to a bid from Fulham in January – although the offer was rejected. Instead he was moved on to QPR on a loan deal until the end of the season as he helped Rangers to gain promotion from the Championship before returning to West Ham. Morrison did not travel with the squad on their recent pre-season tour of New Zealand as he underwent surgery on his groin problem, training alone at the St George’s Park national training base in Staffordshire. His long-term future at West Ham has again been questioned after the club’s co-chairman David Sullivan suggested Allardyce was not keen on keeping Morrison in his squad – even though the board wanted to offer the midfielder a new deal. But Allardyce came out on Wednesday to back Morrison, if he can prove he wants to make it at the club. “We thought we’d brought Ravel to the forefront of his abilities this time last year,” Allardyce told talkSPORT. “He had a fantastic pre-season and he started the season exceptionally well. I think that drifted away somewhat and he ended up with QPR on loan and ended up helping get them promoted.” Press Association Morrison, from Urmston, Manchester, was arrested on Wednesday and has been charged with two counts of common assault. He is due at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court later today. A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: “At about 3.20am on Sunday, July 27 2014, police were called to an address on Alexandra Road, Peel Green, Salford, following reports a 19-year-old woman and a 39-year-old woman had been assaulted. “Officers attended and established the young woman had also been assaulted outside a bar in Manchester city centre earlier that evening and a 21-year-old man was subsequently arrested at a later date. “Ravel Morrison, of Urmston, is charged with two common assaults. “He is due before Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on July 31, 2014.” Morrison was widely tipped to become a Manchester United regular as one of the club’s best home-grown prospects in their youth teams. But the midfielder was sold by former boss Sir Alex Ferguson to West Ham for £650,000 in January 2012. The 21-year-old is accused of attacking a young woman outside a bar in Manchester city centre in the early hours of Sunday morning. The former Manchester United player is also accused of assaulting the same woman and another 39-year-old woman hours later. last_img read more
