The track's music video, which Wilkins co-directed with Adinah Dancyger, starts with a breathy spoken word piece before launching into the track proper, a rubbery synth song about the spectrum of desire. "I know sex with me is mediocre, but I can give you asexual wellbeing," Wilkins sings. "But I can probably feel what you're feeling." Wilkins had this to say in a press release: island mud house horses and stringy apple tree blood of beet meals baby in a moth suit clipping the clothing-rack soon dry look out for a field be fire and dv’s and shitty driving good music imitate algae in the coolest jacket to exist loving your loved ones like it’s never going to end don’t let the hand deject you except the shadow it gives paint

Unknown gunmen attack Syrian intelligence checkpoint in Daraa
BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – A group of unknown gunmen carried out an attack on a checkpoint belonging to the Syrian Air Force Intelligence in eastern Daraa this morning. According to local reports, the gunmen, who were suspected to be members of a Free Syrian Army (FSA), Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) or Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) sleeper cell, opened fire on the checkpoint before fleeing in an unknown direction. The reports said there were casualties among the Syrian Air Force Intelligence personnel; however, the total dead and wounded is unknown. These attacks by the FSA, HTS, and ISIS sleeper cells have decreased over the last four months, thanks in large part to the increase of Syrian Army troops in the Daraa Governorate. However, with the absence of Syrian military personnel in some of the reconciled towns in the Daraa Governorate, it has been difficult to crackdown on these sleeper cells.

And now he's announced his first live shows promoting it. So far O'Brien is just playing four shows, his first under the EOB moniker. They'll be club shows in major North American cities: Toronto, Chicago, New York, and LA. They're happening in February, so maybe the album will be out by then? He's teased one more single and then an early 2020 release, so it could happen. Then again, these gigs are billed as a prelude to a full-scale tour later in the year. EOB's live band will

How This African Woman Beat Global Odds To Become The 2019 Hero Of The Year
It may come across as absurd and preposterous but to this day, there is a stigma around adolescent females in the rural parts of one of the two African countries that were never colonised — Ethiopia. (Liberia is the other one.) In the rural parts of Ethiopia, young girls suffer because they are denied opportunities. And they are denied these opportunities just for being “human”. Yes, in some Ethiopian communities, young girls suffer ignominy and often drop out of school altogether just because of something as natural as menstruation. Yes, as many as half the girls in rural parts of Ethiopia miss school for reasons related to their periods — and that often hampers their education, and by extension, the rest of their lives. What an anomaly! Freweini Mebrahtu — an Ethiopian who has a degree in Chemical Engineering from the US — has dedicated her life fixing that anomaly. And for her efforts, she has been named the 2019 Hero of the Year by CNN.

The 10 Best Jazz Albums Of 2019
This wasn’t a year of radical transformation in the world of jazz. There was no single breakout star, and no explosion like the sudden realization last year that some really major shit was going down in London. But a tremendous amount of extraordinarily good music was released, and there was something for just about every taste. If you liked smooth modern jazz with one foot in R&B, then trumpeter Marquis Hill’s Love Tape was for you; if you wanted intricately composed chamber music, saxophonist Anna Webber’s Clockwise was a must-hear; if you wanted to throw your arms in the air and dance like a maniac, sax/synth/drums trio the Comet Is Coming had two records, Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery and The Aftermath, to play as loudly as your lease would allow. As always, there were deaths: the Art Ensemble Of Chicago’s Joseph Jarman, keyboardist/singer Dr. John, drummer Ginger Baker, pianists Michel Legrand, Harold Mabern, and Larry Willis, guitarist and longtime ECM Records

Protecting Uganda’s Future – Its Children
Today is Human Rights Day and the final day of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence. It’s a day to remind us that everyone must play a vital role in championing human rights and protecting those in need. Children are the most vulnerable among us, completely dependent on others for their needs and protection. This makes children the most likely to suffer violence and human rights abuses, often at the hands of those on whom they depend on the most. Uganda has an appallingly high incidence rate of violence against children. The Uganda Violence Against Children Survey (UVAC 2015) found that 75 per cent of Ugandan children experience some form of violence during childhood. Research shows that the bulk of this violence is occurring in places that should be safe and committed by people like parents/relatives, teachers, friends, and trusted community leaders who those children should be able to trust most.
