On May 12th, Head for the Hills, the Colorado newgrass quartet, will release their latest album, Potions and Poisons. The album will be the group’s fourth studio album following the 2013 release of Blue Ruin. The group, composed of Adam Kinghorn (Guitar), Joe Lessard (Violin), Matt Loewen (Bass), and Sam Parks (Mandolin), has just released a brand new music video for “Bitter Black Coffee,” a track off the upcoming Potions and Poisons.“Bitter Black Coffee,” which was written by Head for the Hills’ Adam Kinghorn, and its accompanying video is a mournful, longing ode to regretful nights with former flames and their repercussions come sunrise. The video for this latest release by Head for the Hills is shot in black and white and features shots of a man alone at a table, filmed from overhead, as time throughout the day passes; the members of Head for the Hills playing the wistful song together; and the woman who’s clearly on the man’s mind. The gritty video was directed by bassist Matt Loewen and produced by the band, making them the artistic force behind both the song and the moving video that evokes film noir in its stylings.You can check out the Live For Live Music’s video premiere of Head for the Hill’s “Bitter Black Coffee” below along with the lyrics from the song. Pre-sale for Potions and Poisons ends this Friday, May 4th, ahead of its May 12th release so make sure to order your copy now here.

In an interview with UKâ€™s Daily Express wednesday, the FC Barcelona forward said: â€œWe donâ€™t know so much about Nigeria but the African teams are normally compact, tough and strong. So it will be no walkover,” he observed.His comment was corroborated earlier in the week by former team mate, Javier Mascherano who said “Nigeria is quite well known to us, we’ve always met in the last World Cups. They are tough, not just because of their physical power, but because their disorganisation has the effect of disorganising you as a rival and that is when teams like ours suffer the most,” he pointed out last Sunday in an interview.Messi, scorer of two goals against Nigeria in 3-2 win at the last edition in Brazil was missing in action the last November, when Super Eagles proved bookmakers wrong with an emphatic 4-2 win over the two-time World Champions in an international friendly match in Russia.The shocker of last year in Russia has elevated the next encounter as one of the most important matches in the group stage of the tournament in Russia.Aside his comments about the Nigerian team, Messi also revealed, his thoughts on Argentina’s chances and his future with the Albeceleste: â€œOur challenge is to be champions,â€ said the Barcelona superstar.â€œWe know it wonâ€™t be easy but Iâ€™m certain that Argentina has a squad capable of being a champion in Russia. If the players all believe the same then we can be contenders.â€â€œItâ€™s true that the qualifying phase was complicated for us because we took too long to do it,â€ he said.â€œBut the important thing is that we are here in this World Cup and that we give everything to achieve as much as we can.â€œIf Argentina goes out there and plays as we know we can then it will be very difficult to beat us.â€œWe have experienced World Cups before and we know that every rival will come out to try and beat us and play the game as if it is a final. That always makes it more complicated. But we are used to it.â€œIt will be important to start strongly. Iceland did well in their last tournament so the first match will not be comfortable. But these are the ones to win if you donâ€™t want the next matches to be even more complicated.â€â€œCroatia is a good team with players in the big European leagues and that makes them dangerous,â€ said Messi.Argentina opens their account at the Mundial on Saturday afternoon against Iceland before Nigeria takes on Croatia hours later.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Femi Solaja with agency reportsFive-time world footballer of the year and Argentine football legend, Lionel Messi, has expressed the difficulty the South American side will encounter when the Super Eagles face off against the Latin American nation in the last Group D match at the World Cup finals in Russia which gets underway from today.Both teams now, perennial opponent at previous group stage of the competition except at France â€˜98 and on all occasions Argentina always triumph but will meet again in the last group match that will determine the journey of the two teams into the knockout phase of the competition.
