Cory Wong is the jedi-master secret weapon of Vulfpeck, plays on 70% of The Beautiful Game, and is referred to as “the album’s Billy Preston.” Vulf-fans might recognize his name from the final track of the 2016 album, or perhaps from some of his appearances with the band in Internet land. Wong’s style blends in perfectly with the originality of the Ann Arbor-bred phenomenons. He’s the subtle hero who can take a guitar part and turn it into his own magical Vulf-y thing.Longtime fans of Vulfpeck are already hip to the name, as Wong made his debut collaboration back in 2013 in their YouTube video “TOUR VLOG 002” when the band had the night off in Tulsa and got funky with the strat-o-master. The jam has since evolved into “Cory Wong,” a song that snuck into Vulfpeck’s live repertoire over the summer and is featured as the final track on The Beautiful Game. Watch the first-ever “Cory Wong” below:Today, Vulfpeck releases the official video of the 2016 album’s recording of “Cory Wong,” complete with Vulfy commentary, original studio videography, and live footage from the Teragram Ballroom performance on June 23, 2016. Released four years after the song’s totally random conception, it’s songs like this that make Vulfpeck so special.Read more about Cory Wong and his work with Vulfpeck in this interview.

Each person joins for their own reasons, but together they’re energizing a movement that now accounts for more than one-third of the U.S. population.They may be attracted to higher interest on their savings and lower interest on their loans than competing banks. They also may be attracted to the member-focused, not-for-profit model that often comes with a heavy dose of financial wellness.Mergers and expanding fields-of-membership are a few ways that individual credit unions can grow their membership base. Quality member service and keeping up with technology also help the cause, and credit unions aren’t shy about making sure Americans know the difference this type of financial institution can make.“We’re seeing credit unions investing time and energy into creating experiences beyond rates to attract new members,” says Alix Patterson, chief experience officer at Callahan & Associates. read more
Kick-off: 8:45pmOne of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures on the Serie A calendar will take place at the Stadio San Paolo this night as Napoli welcome Juventus.The Italian champions are currently four points clear of Inter Milan at the top of the table, while Napoli sit down in 11th having endured a Napoli have finished second in Serie A in three of the last four seasons, while they have not ended a campaign in lower than sixth since 2009.There is no question that it has been a tough 2019-20 campaign for the Naples club, though, with a record of six wins, six draws and eight defeats from 20 matches leaving them in 11th position in the table.Now under the management of Gennaro Gattuso following Carlo Ancelotti’s departure, the Blues are 14 points off fourth-placed Roma, while they sit 27 points behind Juve heading into Sunday night’s contest.Gattuso has lost four of his seven matches at the helm, including a 2-0 home defeat to Fiorentina last weekend. That said, they did progress in the Coppa Italia on Tuesday night courtesy of a 1-0 home success over Lazio, which would have done their confidence no harm at all.It is certainly a testing time for the club, but there is no question that they are capable of upsetting Juve this evening despite losing four of their last five league meetings with the reigning champions.Juve made it five straight wins in all competitions by overcoming Roma in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night. Cristiano Ronaldo was again on the scoresheet for the Old Lady, meaning that the Portugal international has netted 12 times in his last nine appearances for the club.Maurizio Sarri’s side have not been without their problems this season, but five straight league victories has put them in command at the top of the division.Inter are still very much in the argument with a lot of football still to be played, but the Old Lady now have a four-point advantage at the summit and have picked up some big results in recent weeks.Indeed, they have beaten Roma and Parma 2-1 in their last two league matches, which were both huge victories when considering that Inter have drawn their last two against Atalanta and Lecce.Napoli actually came from three goals behind in the reverse league match in Turin earlier this season to level the scores at 3-3, but a 92nd-minute own goal from Kalidou Koulibaly saw Sarri’s side claim all three points in spectacular fashion.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram read more
