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.

China’s factory activity expanded at a faster pace in June, beating expectations, as the economy continues to recover after the government lifted strict lockdowns and ramped up investment, but weak global demand is likely to be a drag on growth.The official manufacturing Purchasing Manager’s Index (PMI) rose to a three-month high of 50.9 in June from 50.6 in May, above the 50-point mark that separates growth from contraction on a monthly basis. Analysts had expected it to slow to 50.4.While most of the economy has reopened, many manufacturers are still struggling due to weak overseas orders as global demand falters. Domestic recovery also remains mild and below historic levels, amid renewed worries about a second wave of infections.“We believe the economy is still far from a full recovery and Beijing cannot afford to reverse its easing stance,” Nomura analysts wrote Monday.Topics : read more
Property professionals surveyed by NAB are more confident about Queensland’s housing market than any other state.QUEENSLAND is leading the nation when it comes to confidence in residential property, with the industry expecting house prices to grow the fastest in the sunshine state over the next two years.The NAB Residential Property Index has fallen to its lowest level in seven years, with Queensland the only state to report a positive result in the third quarter of 2018.Sentiment fell 15 index points to -9 — dragged lower by big falls in New South Wales and Victoria, where the bank tips house prices to decline even more than previously expected. The ANZ-Property Council survey has found confidence in Queensland’s property sector has fallen. Image: AAP/Glenn Hunt.For the first time in four years, all states recorded a significant drop in industry confidence, with overall national confidence declining by 12 index points this quarter. The survey of more than 1000 property industry professionals reveals Queenslanders are more disappointed about the performance of their state government when it comes to planning and managing growth than any other state or territory.Property Council Queensland executive director Chris Mountford said the fall in sentiment could be attributed to concerns over increasing interest rates and tighter lending restrictions nationally.“As concerns over the cost and availability of finance persist, it is important to remember Queensland is not immune to these wider issues,” Mr Mountford said.“Now, more than ever, it is essential for the government to step up and support the property industry.” A house for sale in the Brisbane suburb of Stafford.

Queensland was the only state to report a positive result in the NAB Residential Property Index for Q3.The survey of more than 300 property professionals reveals sentiment in Queensland improved by 7 index points during the quarter to a read of +21.Those surveyed expect Queensland to lead the country for house price growth in the next 12 months, with prices increasing by 0.8 per cent.Longer term, house prices are tipped to rise 1.4 per cent in the next two years.Property professionals also see Queensland leading the way when it comes to rental growth, with rents expected to grow by 1.6 per cent in the next 12 months.

Picture: Mark Calleja.Debt finance availability has also recorded a decline in sentiment across the board, with Queensland dropping to -23 index points. “In Queensland, the industry has experienced a period of change and uncertainty over the previous 12 months, with increases to land tax and a more than doubling of Additional Foreign Acquirer Duty (AFAD),” Mr Mountford said.“The dramatic tax increases imposed on an industry that already pays 53.7 per cent of Queensland taxes is certainly a factor holding back stronger gains in sentiment. “It is imperative that the (state) government supports the sector in the face of more challenging market conditions.” read more
