Buffalo based quartet Aqueous continue to impress fans with every move, playing some of the best live performances that captures the group’s unique penchant for songwriting. The band will continue to capitalize on that effect, as they just kicked off an extensive fall tour and will release a brand new album, Best In Show, next Friday October 14th.On Best In Show, the quartet expertly displays their unique ability for meticulously crafted arrangements with soulful lyrics and a dynamic musical range, while maintaining their signature dual rock guitar onslaught, anthemic choruses, melodic synth lines, and a tight rhythm section that always gets the party going. Guitarist/vocalist/keyboardist David Loss speaks to the excitement captured on Best In Show, saying, “Although Aqueous is primarily a live touring band, I feel that we all work very well in the studio environment; you can be creative in different ways and I like that the possibilities are endless. Personally, recording ‘Best In Show’ was a unique experience because I got to really explore my role on keyboards more than I ever had previously, and it was cool to challenge myself like that, and also to utilize some classic instruments to capture the sounds I was hearing just right. Ultimately, if someone had never heard Aqueous, I’d definitely give them ‘Best In Show’ because it showcases so much of what we have to offer as a band.”Each track on the four-song EP showcases a diverse and powerful side to the band’s ever-evolving sound. “I really like the song selections on this EP, they encompass the many facets of the band’s sound,” said bassist Evan McPhaden, “We touched on soul, pop, prog, dance and rock which makes for a really fun and enjoyable listen.”With Aqueous out on the road and Best In Show coming out shortly, the band has offered up a very first taste of the new release. We’re excited to offer up a stream of “Random Company,” which you can hear below.Now that rocks! Drummer Rob Houk shares his take on Best In Show, saying “As the new guy in Aqueous, I was enthralled with how much focus, dedication and care that goes into AQ’s studio process, and I couldn’t be happier or more excited with this album and to make music with such a great crew.”Guitarist Mike Gantzer says, “I’m really proud of the work we did on this project, it feels like a definitive step forward in our band’s sound, and the vibe is really great on the whole album, which I attribute to the fact that the vibe was really great while we were making it! Everyone in the band crushed their parts and stepped their game up, and I think the sound is really cohesive throughout. We had a blast and put our all into making Best In Show, and I’m psyched for people to get down with it.”Fortunately, fans can get down with Aqueous throughout the fall, as the band is touring extensively in support of Best In Show. The band will celebrate the album’s release with a two night run at their hometown Buffalo Iron Works venue, with support from BIG Something and Natalie Cressman on October 13-14 respectively. All tour and album details can be found on the band’s website, and a teaser for the album as well as the full tour schedule can be viewed below.
This is one of the greatest goals the UEFA Europa League has seen and will ever see.To score from outside the penalty box is no small deal. To score from outside the penalty box with a rabona is just inexplicably awesome.Harry Kane might have grabbed a hat-trick on a night where Tottenham Hotspur convincingly beat Asteras Tripolis 5-1 in the Europa League, but Erik Lamela’s goal made him the man of the show.Mauricio Pochettino described Erik Lamela’s wonder-strike during Tottenham’s 5-1 win over Greek side Asteras Tripolis as “unbelievable”.Lamela scored with an outrageous ‘rabona’-style strike, wrapping his left foot around his right leg to curl the ball in from 20 yards.”It was a great goal, maybe the best by one of my players,” said Pochettino. Asked about his lack of celebration, the Spurs manager said: “I only show emotion at home, and in my bed.”What is a rabona?A method of kicking the football with the kicking leg wrapped around the back of the standing leg, so it appears the player has their legs crossedThe first reported rabona happened in a league game in Argentina in 1948 and was performed by Ricardo InfanteSoon after, a magazine front cover featured Infante dressed as a pupil with the caption ‘Infante played hooky’; rabona means to skip school in SpanishDiego Maradona, Roberto Baggio, Gianfranco Zola and Paul Gascoigne are among the players who have performed a successful rabona during a game Lamela’s magnificent strike was hailed by his team-mates as one of the best they have seen.Striker Harry Kane, who hit a hat-trick as Spurs strolled to victory, said: “It was crazy. He’s got that in his locker and it was great for him to do it on the big stage.””Stunned”, “crazy”, “unbelievable” – Spurs players and management describe Lamela’s strikeDefender Jan Vertonghen added: “I was stunned, for two minutes I was just thinking about that goal. “It is 100% the best goal I’ve seen live. I’ve seen a lot of YouTube clips but I’ve never seen a goal like it. I think the Puskas award is already his.”If only my words could describe this goal. JUST WATCH IT.
