first_imgand yes this is new material made this year and yes there is more where that came from.— el-p (@therealelp) September 8, 2016 been keeping my mouth shut about my work w/ zack since jan when we did it. it hurt. now i’ll commence keeping my mouth shut about the rest.— el-p (@therealelp) September 9, 2016You can listen to the new single, right here. Fans have been hearing about a Zack de la Rocha solo album since 2000, when the Rage Against The Machine singer started working on a new project. Though collaborations with Trent Reznor, Questlove and more were ultimately dropped, the only album to feature de la Rocha extensively in the past 15 years is the One Day as a Lion project that debuted in 2008.Last week, de la Rocha surprised fans with a brand new single titled “digging for windows.” While fans were ecstatic to hear the new music, the unexpected release begged the question, “is this a one off release or the first track of a new album?”Fortunately, it was Consequence of Sound who confirmed the latter scenario, as it seems “digging for windows” is the first track of many to come. The new album will apparently feature all new music recorded within the past year, as de la Rocha seems to be eyeing a major comeback. Run The Jewels’ El-P, who produced the new single, also confirmed these reports in a series of Twitter posts.the ZDR the album is happening. 2017.— el-p (@therealelp) September 8, 2016last_img read more

Dodgers get back to winning ways by beating Braves

first_imgThe win continued the Dodgers’ dominant summer run after a brief pause for back-to-back losses. They are now 32-6 since June 7.“He’s a spark,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Taylor. “We talk about how many good players we have and how many are contributing to what we’re doing. I guess it’s not so much under the radar any more how much Chris adds that spark.”That spark was flickering for awhile in June. Taylor struggled through a 3-for-30 slide over a 10-day stretch that saw his average drop to .273. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> Rich Hill is an old hand at re-invention. Chris Taylor is new at it. But those two combined to get the Dodgers back to their winning ways Saturday night.Hill continued his mid-season revival with another strong start while Taylor came off the bench to drive in three runs as the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 6-2.center_img Since then, he has gone 29 for 68 (.426) with 12 extra-base hits including a solo home run in the seventh inning Saturday after he came off into the game defensively as part of a double switch and then a two-run triple in the eighth that effectively put the game away.“I’m feeling pretty good right now,” Taylor said. “I cleaned up a couple mechanical things. My head was moving a lot. I think I was using too much body, diving at the ball. I wasn’t seeing the ball great.“I watched a lot of video, trying to get back to where I was when I first came up (in mid-April) and just trying not to do too much.”Taylor has already done so much more than the Dodgers had a right to expect. With virtually no outfield experience, he has become their primary left fielder. His .920 OPS is third on the team behind All-Stars Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger. His home run Saturday was his 12th of the season and came in his 308th plate appearance. In 1,972 plate appearances over six minor-league seasons, Taylor hit a grand total of 23 home runs.“It’s one of those things where until you’ve done it, you don’t really know what you have,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “So where’s his floor? We don’t know. What’s his ceiling? … I can’t sit here right now and say what his floor is or his ceiling.”Both are known with Hill and he spent most of the season’s first three months closer to the floor.“I look back at that St. Louis start here and from now to that start – it’s stark,” Roberts said, referring to a seven-walk, five-run debacle in late May. “I’m not going to say I wasn’t a little on the fence or worried or hoping – which isn’t a good strategy. But Rich, Honey (pitching coach Rick Honeycutt), they worked it out.”It wasn’t until another clunker in mid-June that Hill hit bottom, though. After that start in Cleveland, Hill verbally beat himself up in front of the media. Though his voice was rough from a respiratory illness that has hit some of the Dodgers, Hill sounded much better after Saturday’s win.“Yeah, it’s much more fun when you don’t suck,” he said.The win continued Hill’s ‘less-is-more’ revival. The Braves scored twice in the fifth inning against the Dodgers starter who struck out eight in 6 1/3 innings.Since simplifying his delivery, Hill has a 1.93 ERA, an 0.75 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings. The Dodgers have won five of his six starts since Hill made the adjustments.“They (the changes) never felt too different,” Hill said. “It’s just about getting myself in good position over the rubber and making sure my release point is out in front. You can see that in the shape of the curveball. When you can see it’s that 12-6 break instead of, say, 11-5 then I know my release point is out in front.”It was out front against the Braves. Hill struck out five in the first two innings, finishing four of them off with sharp-breaking curveballs for strike three.The Dodgers gave him an early lead with home runs from Corey Seager and Chase Utley – two of the major-league high 76 the Dodgers have hit since June 7. But the Braves tied it with two runs in the fifth.The Dodgers got it back for good in the sixth while barely hitting the ball out of the infield.An infield single against the shift by Yasmani Grandal got it started. He scored when Yasiel Puig hit his own dribbler up the third-base line. Braves pitcher Julio Teheran raced over to field it and made a nice play to throw catcher Tyler Flowers on the run. The throw easily beat Grandal to the plate but the ball came flying out of Flowers’ glove when he made contact with Grandal on the tag.Taylor took it from there an inning later and Hill, Pedro Baez and Brandon Morrow combined to retire the final 13 Braves in order to close it out.last_img read more
