The Coincidentalist is Howe Gelb's first solo album since 2011's Alegrias, and his debut for New West Records. In 2012, his ever-evolving Giant Sand issued the sprawling "country rock opera" Tucson, which marked his return to the desert after spending most of the previous decade in Denmark. Self-produced, The Coincidentalist is a mostly low-key affair with a stellar mix by John Parish. As has been his M.O. for most of the last three decades, Gelb enlists a fine cast of co-conspirators: longtime bassist Thoger Tetens Lund, former Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, M. Ward on lead guitar, and the Silver Thread Trio (Gabrielle Pietrangelo, Laura Kepner-Adney, and Caroline Isaacs) on chorus vocals.
Many of us work with Microsoft Office applications every day. When a new suite is released, we don't need training on the full programs. Often we only need a review of what is new, different, exciting, and how we can apply these new tools to our work. This course does just that; it reviews the changes in the Office 2013 applications: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook. It also reviews changes appearing across all applications that are not unique to one product.
