Um novo modo de pensar a música e o mercado independente

História

Criar e lançar um selo fonográfico como o Astronauta Discos já era cogitado desde o final de 1996, mas somente em 1999 Leonardo Rivera* o montou.

O selo lança álbuns e artistas que não recebem a devida atenção no departamento artístico das grandes gravadoras; acreditando no equilíbrio entre a música e o mercado; e respeitando expressões artísticas legítimas.

O Astronauta Discos permitiu que inúmeros artistas novos e independentes pudessem lançar seus primeiros álbuns – entre eles Luis Capucho, Autoramas, Saara Saara, Mathilda Kovak, O Divã Intergaláctico, Los Bife, Coyote Valvulado, Ju Martins e Senhor Kalota. Tornou-se uma casa para o artista no início de sua trajetória.

Apostando em novas tendências e valorizando propostas ousadas e criativas, busca coerência e comprometimento com a renovação, mas sem expor o novo artista a programas de caça-talentos na TV ou propostas similares.

* Foi A&R; e Gerente de Produto da PolyGram/Universal Music; colaborador de revistas especializadas como International Magazine, Backstage, Bizz e Billboard Brasil; autor do livro Seu Jorge – A Inteligência é Fundamental e apresentador do programa Mundo Astronauta.

Elenco

Senhor Kalota

A Senhor Kalota é uma das mais bacanas na mistura de ska com pop e rock, trazendo ainda leves pitadas de blues, dub e reggae. O som da banda mineira promove um resgate aos estilos oitentistas, apostando na liberdade musical e atualizando a linguagem. Integrada por Visso Lana na guitarra e vocal, Alexandre Deléo no baixo e backing vocal e Leo Lago na bateria e backing vocal, realizam uma alquimia rítmica acentuada, mostrando uma música robusta, materializando-se em grooves e riffs repletos sentimentos. O álbum digital está em todas as plataformas de streaming.

Chiqueti

Nascido em Lages, SC, começou na música ainda na adolescência. Morando em Floripa desde 1995 e tocando na cena a partir de 1997 em várias bandas cover, sempre como baixista, aventurou-se como vocalista fazendo violão e voz simultaneamente com o trabalho autoral a partir de 2011, quando apresentou a canção Rosa no festival de talentos da UNIVALI. Em 2015 lançou “De Cara”, seu álbum de estréia que mostra o vigor da obra que Chiqueti construiu ao longo de seus anos de carreira. Um álbum denso, vigoroso, forte, flertando com a melancolia e fazendo pensar em amores e superações. O álbum “De cara” já está disponível nas principais plataformas de streaming.

Ju Martins

A cantora, instrumentista e compositora Ju Martins gravou seu álbum de estréia após anos cantando na noite, pesquisando estética e repertórios de pop/rock e MPB. Gravado no estúdio da Warner Chappell, na Gávea (RJ), o álbum canções que refletem suas principais influencias — como Elis Regina, Fátima Guedes, João Gilberto, Cássia Eller, The Beatles, Clube da Esquina, Luiz Gonzaga, Chet Baker, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone e Suba, só para citar alguns. O álbum sai no primeiro semestre de 2016.

Struggling Yankees Giancarlo Stanton, Didi Gregorius not concerning Aaron Boone … yet

Before the season, Yankees manager Aaron Boone envisioned Giancarlo Stanton launching pitches out of Yankee Stadium at a torrid pace. In April, the guy blistering the ball was Didi Gregorius. Now neither Gregorius, nor Stanton can catch a break.

After striking out four times Sunday, Stanton was given the day off Monday as the Yankees lost to the Astros 5-1. He’s 0-for-12 with seven strikeouts in his last three games, forcing Boone to blame the adjustment phase.

Gregorious was marred in a 4-for-70 slump entering Monday and batted seventh in the order after spending nearly the entire season batting third or fourth. A pair of hits helped Gregorious ignore the demotion.

Now he becomes the latest Met to succumb to an injury.

Noah Syndergaard was examined today at The Hospital for Special Surgery for soreness in his right index finger. A MRI and clinical examination confirmed a strained ligament in the finger. Syndergaard will be placed on the 10-Day Disabled List, retroactive to May 26.

Syndergaard joins fellow starters Jacob deGrom and Jason Vargas in having been on the DL this season, at a time when Mets starting pitching already was thin after they off-loaded Matt Harvey to the Reds.

Although Syndergaard hasn’t been the dominant Thor of past seasons, he is 4-1, tied with deGrom for most wins among starters, with a 3.06 ERA and has been a consistent presence in a rotation that has been roiled almost all season.

This will be Covey’s 20th start in the big leagues. He is 3-9 with a 5.95 ERA in his career.

On the outside looking in, I would say he’s on a path that leads us to believe he’s turning a corner and getting to where you feel comfortable with all of his approaches, when he’s attacking hitters, and that’s going to be able to have this become a sustainable activity for him, Chicago manager Rick Renteria said to the Chicago Sun-Times. The stuff is good. It’s always going to be, for all pitchers, trusting the stuff and commanding strikes.

For Oakland, right-hander Daniel Mengden (6-6, 4.06 ERA) is set to make his 16th start of the season. The Houston Astros drafted Mengden in the fourth round in 2014, and he was traded to Oakland the next season as part of a package for veteran left-hander Scott Kazmir.

Kazmir has not pitched in the big leagues since 2016, but Mengden appears to have a bright future at age 25. He has struggled recently, however, allowing 16 earned runs in his past 14 1/3 innings for a 10.05 ERA during that span. He has given up eight home runs in that time.

In his only career appearance against the White Sox earlier this season, Mengden allowed only one run and six hits in eight innings. He walked one and struck out six while picking up the win in Oakland’s 8-1 victory.

Cardinals sign Greg Little, cut Cobi Hamilton

The Cardinals have signed free agent receiver Greg Little, http://www.coloradoavalancheofficialonline.com/Adidas-Joe-Sakic-Jersey Ian Joe Thornton Youth Jersey Rapoport of NFL Media reports. They cut receiver Cobi Hamilton in a corresponding move.
Nike NFL Derek Wolfe White Jersey Men's Limited: #95 Denver Broncos Road Vapor Untouchable
Little, 29, took part in the Cardinals’ minicamp this week http://www.officialsanjosesharks.com/Adidas-Joe-Thornton-Jersey on a tryout basis. He did the same at the team’s rookie minicamp.

The Browns made Little a second-round choice in 2011. He spent three seasons in Cleveland before the Browns waived him.

Anyone from anywhere can take our test and has just as good of a shot to score well as anyone else from anywhere else, Goldman said.

Goldman and Bowman strive to maintain the anonymity of their clients and the test resultsof those who take the test. But a recent Sports Illustrated story revealed that during the 2018 NFL combine, Baker Mayfield earned the second highest score of 63 quarterbacks who have taken the test since 2012. He was subsequently drafted No. 1 overall by the Browns. Goldman confirmed the story about Mayfield was accurate.

According to Mike Sando of Joe Sakic Jersey ESPN.com, the Raiders have hired longtime referee Gerry Austin as a consultant.

We used it not as much as I would have liked to use it, but for certain guys, Ross said. It’s more football specific and position specific in the things that they test for. It’s not just a board stroke of random questions that aren’t related to what players actually do on the field. … I’ve been in this for 20 years and seen 10 different, what they term, psychological tests. This was the most football specific of the ones I’ve seen.

Officials believe one of the victims was selling the two men marijuana when shots were fired.

Jacob Hollett, 19, was found in the driver’s seat of a gray Nissan, while Dalton Prater, 18, was shot to death in a nearby pickup truck, the Star-Telegram reported.

Hollett was transported to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries.

MLB trade rumors: Yankees have reportedly reached out to 20 teams about deal for starting pitcher

The Yankees are looking to add a starter before the trade deadline.
Youth Albert McClellan Limited Olive/Camo Nike Jersey: NFL Baltimore Ravens #50 2017 Salute to Service
New York general manager Brian Cashman has reached out to about 20 teams to discuss a potential trade for a top starter, according to a report from ESPN. Cashman said Friday Austin Hooper Authentic Jersey he will continue to make phone calls.

This team has really earned the right to get reinforced if we can possibly find a way, Cashman said to reporters. We really like the team we’ve got, and we’d certainly love to make it better if it’s possible.

If we didn’t take Tulo, our internal debate was Andrew McCutchen or Jay Bruce. We were prepared to go in either direction. We liked both players a ton. Either of those picks would have turned out to be really good picks for us. I think both of those guys would have even played up more in our venue than they would in the venues they ended up in. When the Seattle Mariners took Jeff Clement, we really were excited. We didn’t just like Tulo’s ability; the more we Authentic Chris Davis Jersey got to http://www.falconsfootballofficialonline.com/Austin-Hooper-Jersey.html know Tulo, he had an intangible combination of competitiveness and leadership that we thought would be perfect for where we were at as an http://www.officialoriolesshop.com/authentic-19-chris-davis-jersey.html organization and the type of team we would be putting around him. We also thought he’d be quick to the big leagues, which turned out to be the case, too.

Dykstra’s rap sheet is a long one, including time spent in prison for grand theft auto and providing false financial statements. Previously, he also filed for bankruptcy, was charged with sexual assault and indecent exposure on separate occasions and has been linked to street drugs and steroids

It is Dykstra’s admitted use of steroids along with an over-the-top-personality that Backman believes helped land his ex-teammate in trouble time and again.

It’s an example people should understand, that’s what that scan do to you, Backman said of steroid use. With Lenny, it’s what he did to his body with the steroids. It made him a better player… I don’t agree with it… but when Lenny does something, it’s full bore, there’s no halfway. If he does it, he does it all the way.

Why doesn’t Eagles’ Doug Pederson want a joint practice with another team this preseason?

There was an idea floated recently by ESPN that the Eagles might consider a joint practice with the Patriots during the Yunel Escobar Womens Jersey pre-season this year, a lucrative concept considering these are the two teams that just faced off in Super Bowl LII.

The negotiations have occurred without any information to the Spanish FA and we were informed just five minutes before the press release. There’s a way to act that needs to be fulfilled.

Fernando Hierro, who was an assistant coach, will take http://www.broncosofficialfootball.com/Demarcus_Walker_Jersey_Broncos over the squad. Spain plays Portugal Friday, at 2 p.m. EDT (FOX and Fubo.tv ), Iran on Wednesday, June 20 at 2 p.m. EDT (FOX and Fubo.tv ), and Morocco on Monday, June 25 at 2 p.m. EDT (FS1 and Fubo.tv ).

Fernando Hierro will assume the position of national coach in the World Championship of Russia and will appear before the media accompanied by the president of the RFEF, Luis Rubiales, read a statement on the Spanish Football Federation website.

Next, he will direct his first training and on Friday he will debut in Sochi at the match Demarcus Walker Jersey of http://www.authenticlosangelesangelsshop.com/Yunel-Escobar-Jersey Spain against Portugal.

Got it? Good. Let’s get gloomy. 

Holmes was drafted by Philadelphia with the 37th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft after three seasons at Bowling Green. In his three NBA seasons with the 76ers, he has appeared in 156 games (20 starts) and averaged 7.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 16.9 minutes per game. He’s posted six double-doubles over the past two seasons, including a 15-point, 11-rebound effort this past Dec. 12 at Minnesota and a career-high 14-rebound, 24-point performance on March 20, 2017 at Orlando.

The forward-center got the starting nod on March 29, 2017 vs. Atlanta and posted a career-high 25 points (11-16 FG) to go along with eight rebounds. A career.547 percent shooter, Holmes led the team in field goal-percentage this past season with a mark of.560 (min. 35 games) and has finished top-three among 76ers in that category in each of his three NBA seasons.

Justin Hunter trying to take advantage of chances with first team

The Steelers traded Martavis Bryant during the draft and then selected James Washington in the second round in a move that may give them a replacement for Bryant in the wide receiver group.

Washington isn’t the only option for the snaps opened up by Bryant’s departure, however. Justin Hunter remains on the Pittsburgh roster and he’s gotten chances to run with the first team with Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster missing some of the team’s OTA practices.

I need every one of [these reps], Hunter said, via Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. It gives me another op to show what I’ve got against the first team. As long as I keep it consistently, I’ll be straight.

Your San Francisco quarterback, I’m sure nobody ever heard of him,the president said.

… There was an article today that was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump.

But for now it’s important to remember that A) he is here and B) it makes absolutely no sense for anyone, the receiver or the team, to risk aggravating an injury during a meaningless June practice. The Giants would be best served covering him in bubble wrap and sliding him into a storage shed until Sept. 9 given his importance to the team.

This might be headed for a training camp holdout, but for now Beckham’s situation hasn’t been the kind of distraction other teams are facing (see Julio Jones in Atlanta). He’s here. He’s healthy.

Manning needs him. The quarterback looks like a different person than he did at the end of last season, when he wore the strain of a 3-13 record and losing his starting job on his face.

Everything the Giants have done since December has delivered one message to their franchise quarterback: We can win now and we can win with you. Barkley might be the player fans are most exciting to see after the team took him No. 2 overall, but Manning is as much the face of this franchise as he was on his own draft night 14 years ago.

Jets’ Chris Herndon on DWI arrest: ‘This is not who I am’

Jets rookie tight end Chris Mark Lowe Jersey Herndon on Tuesday said his recent driving while intoxicated arrest does not reflect his true character.
NFL Nike Men's Christian Kirksey Orange Alternate Limited Jersey - #58 Cleveland Browns Vapor Untouchable
This is not Adam Shaheen Jersey who I am, he said after the Jets’ organized team activities practice.

But Herndon declined to offer details about http://www.bearsfootballonline.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ADAM_SHAHEEN_JERSEY.html his Saturday DWI arrest in Rockaway Township.

Former Giant running back Doug Kotar died in 1983 from a cancerous brain tumor, and running back John Tuggle died in 1986 from lung cancer. Linebacker Dan Lloyd’s National Football League career was ended in 1980 by lymph node cancer, although he survived and later played in the United States Football League.

At the time, Giants players worried that Giants Stadium, built on a dump site, was contributing to the illnesses, but no link was found.

It makes you wonder what the hell is going on, http://www.authenticlosangelesdodgersshop.com/Mark-Lowe-Jersey linebacker Harry Carson said via the New York Times in 1987. I’m tired of going through this. I don’t know how much more I can take of guys getting ill.

Wentz suffered a season-ending injury in Week 14 last season when he tore his ACL against the Los Angeles Rams. He injured it on a touchdown run that was ultimately called back due to penalty, although he stayed in the game for a couple more plays to finish the drive with a touchdown pass.

At that moment, Philadelphia’s dream season appeared to be all but over. After all, the second-year quarterback was having an MVP-caliber season.

Wentz threw for 3,296 yards with 33 touchdowns and just seven interceptions in 13 games. The former No. 2 overall pick had led his Eagles to an 11-2 record, the best mark in the NFC and enough to clinch the division in the game he went down.

As easy as it would have been for the team to dwell on the injury and give up on the season, Philadelphia instead embraced the underdogrole and went on an unbelievable run to win its first-ever Super Bowl championship.

The Astros have opened a 10-game trip with four straight wins over Texas

A trip to Oakland provides a homecoming of sorts for Astros catcher Max Stassi, a Northern California native who took advantage of an injury to starter Brian McCann last month to carve out more of a regular role with the club.
Women's Nike Baltimore Ravens #51 Kamalei Correa Limited Pink Rush Fashion NFL Jersey
He went 4-for-9 with http://www.lionsnflofficialprostore.com/YOUTH+RICKY+WAGNER+JERSEY two doubles on Houston’s last trip to Oakland, and Saturday registered one of his personal highlights with a 466-foot home run, the longest of his career, against Texas.

You catch a winner and get a hit, as a catcher, you feel pretty good about your night, noted Astros manager A.J. Hinch, himself a former catcher. You catch http://www.lionsshopnfl.com/Authentic-Ricky-Wagner-Jersey a winner and hit a homer, you feel that much better.

Chapman made a great swing, Treinen observed, but that swing doesn’t get us the win if Marcus doesn’t make that play.Royals return home vs. Reds

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Royals return home Tuesday night to open an eight-game homestand.

Normally Kauffman Stadium would be a welcome sight to the struggling Royals after dropping Authentic Ricky Wagner Jersey six of seven games on a California trip to Anaheim and Oakland, but not anymore.

Thanks to the moves overseen by General Manager John Dorsey this offseason, Jackson thinks he has a roster suited to that task. Jackson believes the players brought into the team a good mix when it comes to previous NFL Ricky Wagner Jersey success and players still on their way up as well. He also believes they are more talented across the board.

If you look across the locker room, every position group has been upgraded with more talent, Jackson said, via Albert Breer of SI.com. It’s everywhere. That in itself, when you look from one guy to the next, they can see it, there’s been more talent brought on to this football team. … I’ve been in this for a while, so there are things you can tell. I’m not ever going to say our team is not good enough, or we’re not this or not that. We’ll know when we get to training camp. But I do know there’s talent on this football team. And I think that’s obvious. If you look around the roster, there’s been some players who’ve been really good players on other teams.

Tyler Austin’s first action in five games was a start at first base for Greg Bird and he was 0 for 4 with four strikeouts.

He’s now hitless in 18 at-bats since homering in consecutive innings during the Yanks’ 10-1 win in Kansas City on May 20.
DeSean Jackson Women's Limited White Jersey: Nike NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vapor Untouchable Road #11
Backup catcher Austin Romine was in the lineup and extended his career-long hitting streak to nine games with a line single in the fifth inning. He was 1 for 2 with a walk and increased his team-best average to.358.

Vinnie Iyer: Beckham has more of a beef because the Giants have disrespected all the great things he has already done and have made him look like the absolute bad guy in all of this. Leonard’s situation feels a lot more personal, but in the end, business comes first, and business isn’t looking good for Beckham.

Simply put, he could be the best pitcher on the free agent market, putting him in line for a nine-figure contract with several worthy suitors聽ready and willing to open their wallets.

Now, that’s not until after the 2019 season.

However if the Giants’ 2018 season continues to go south, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that San Francisco tries to move him now.
Austin Jackson Jersey
Which means pitching-hungry teams with deep farm systems, teams like the Yankees and Red Sox, could make a pitch for the southpaw before the non-waiver trade deadline, in an attempt to match up with the Houston Astros’ rotation.

A pitcher like Bumgarner could easily swing the balance in any pennant race. Which means all eyes will be on Sylvester Williams Jersey Bumgarner when he makes his 2018 debut Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

But this is at least one example of the NFLPA going further in on the kind of efforts it made in 2009 and ’10, ahead of the 2011 lockout. The advantage the owners had over the players then was a bet that the players鈥攇iven the lack of guaranteed contracts and overall job security in the NFL鈥攚ould never sacrifice paychecks to leverage a better deal out of the owners.

Rams need young linebackers to step up this summer

The Los Angeles Rams loaded up on experience on the defensive line and in the secondary with a series of audacious offseason acquisitions through trades and free-agent signings.

Third-year linebacker Cory Littleton is calling plays for the first time after moving inside. Second-year outside linebacker Samson Ebukam was paired with rookie defensive end Justin Lawler to form the main pass rush tandem during a team period Tuesday, with rookies Trevon Young, John Franklin-Myers and Brian Womac seeing significant action behind them.

In the hopes of filling some of those gaps, the Rams used four of their 11 picks on linebackers to add depth inside and outside. Special teams contributors Littleton and Bryce Hager will take on larger roles in the middle, and players from McVay’s first draft class in 2017 such as Ebukam and Ejuan Price are being asked to further ramp up their development in pressuring opposing quarterbacks.

I think as a seventh-year player, now you have a little freedom to just be yourself and to not take a back seat and to just be vocal within reason, Cousins said.

Be a leader, step up, and let your voice be heard. To their credit, the guys have received it well, and it’s been fun to just assimilate myself into the offense and into the program.

As Cousins was finishing an interview session with the Minnesota media on Wednesday afternoon during a visit to a local middle school, his teammates called him over to complete their interaction with the kids and pose for one last photo.

He dutifully sprinted across the gym so as not to disappoint or, perhaps, take the razzing. He’s the face of this franchise, a responsibility he hasn’t shied from, but he’s also a carefully spoken and image-conscious player who can understand the importance of not overstepping his bounds.

The Giants clean up their backfield mess with a three-down runner and receiver who does everything well.

Game Mens Andy Janovich Jersey Barkley will be a good complement and boost to Eli Manning in a dangerous downfield passing game, and he will take advantage of an improved line with LT Nate Solder. It’s a great first pick for GM Dave Gettleman.
Men's Adidas Philadelphia Flyers #93 Jakub Voracek Authentic Green Salute to Service NHL Jersey
This is a great fit, because the Jets needed the most complete and ready starter from this year’s QB class. Darnold’s arm, accuracy and athleticism form a near-polished product. He’ll have a good shot to start over Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater in Year 1. He also carries the it factor for the spotlight of New York. He can succeed where Mark Sanchez halfway failed.

D’Antoni’s spacing concepts are the same as they were with the Suns, but as with the total of 3s launched, the Rockets take them to new extremes. It’s not unusual for sixth man Eric Gordon or power forward Ryan Anderson, when he’s in the rotation, to spot up several feet behind the arc, giving Houston’s playmakers that much more room to work.

Morey’s analytically informed philosophy — feast on 3s, layups and free throws — was a perfect fit for D’Antoni. There were those who wondered, however, how it would work with Paul, a master of the midrange shot, which usually ranks below only post-ups among the Rockets bosses’ preferences.

It’s not a coincidence that Paul attempted 6.5 3s per game, by far a career high, during his first season in Houston. But he has remained a midrange assassin, in another case of individual analytics being an exception to the rule, as his field goal percentage (53.9) on those shots was the league’s best among players with at least 75 attempts.

The Ravens can use the additional third-round pick from that trade on a quarterback. Richmond’s Kyle Lauletta, Western Authentic LaDainian Tomlinson Jersey Kentucky’s Mike White and Washington State’s Luke Falk should be available in the middle rounds. — Jamison Hensley

Neither position seems like a particular need with a glut of receivers on the roster and the starting cornerbacks potentially set with Darqueze Dennard, Dre Kirkpatrick and William Jackson III. But don’t be surprised if someone at those positions catches their eye earlier than believed, especially if they can double as a kick returner. — Katherine Terrell

The significance of this is that the Browns moved down in the past two drafts, trading away selections that turned into Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson.
