My first exposure to Mandolin Orange was an early, first year, performance of Mandolin Orange at The ENO festival river stage. It was Andrew’s deep Southern baritone that lured me to the small shade stage in a stand of trees. A mix of lyrically mature, subtle well-crafted songs, kept me close to the stage for the rest of the set. This duo was different from the average blend of Eno performers that year and certainly chronologically younger than the majority.
Adele has a new album (release). Do you think Adele needs any marketing help to promote this release? Rhetorical question, of course. Our policy on the D.C. is to promote musicians we like, love, admire and notice.
I asked auto Alexa to play songs by Paul McCartney and the song, “FourFiveSeconds” blasts from my car’s rear speakers. What song is this, and why is it associated with Beatle Paul with no discernible vocal presence from Mr. Instantly recognizable? Now after song identification, research conducted, and collaborating artists known, we share this song with Durham Cool readers. A collaboration between Kanye and McC Paul was perhaps inevitable yet the addition of Rihanna was chosen by the Gods of music.
More than half of world’s population lives in cities while only 5% did so in the 18th century. The rapid urbanisation has resulted in for example inadequate infrastructure, physical inactivity, gentrification, air pollution, and growing numbers of slum dwellers. All factors challenging health and wellbeing of the people living in the cities. In addition, when addressing climate change it has become of paramount importance to look at mitigation and adaptation investments tailored to the urban context
Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree*: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities.
The first time I heard a Charles Mingus composition I was instantly mesmerized by the organic melody and improvisatory order of his music. It’s a mix of bebop, soft bop, hard bop, and a little bit of old 30’s Chicago jazz. It was apparent that this was superior music that touched one at a soul level; music that invited a close immersion in mindful listening.
Andrew Yang is making sense. Last night’s debate demonstrated to this voter why Yang deserves our full attention. Two main Yang points that make sense to me, Universal Income and how the Robot Apocalypse can bring our divided nation together.

Remember each day to start and end with gratitude. You will always have more than some and less than others. Be grateful for what you have ( love, people, warm home). Keep your confirmation bias and comparison anxiety ( avoid prolonged periods on Social Media) in check.
- The tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one’s existing beliefs or theories.
Confirmation biases impact how we gather information, but they also influence how we interpret and recall information. For example, people who support or oppose a particular issue will not only seek information to support it. They will also interpret news stories in a way that upholds their existing ideas.
