3 Day weekends mean nothing when you work Sunday nights, but is it really working if you love what you do? NOPE and this past Sunday was no exception as I was in for another 2-hour journey through the wonderful world of new music. 

I had an opportunity to really mix it up this weekend crossing all sorts of genres and audio landscapes. Both Dante Elephante and Clean Spill are playing here in town (3/2 at soHo in Santa Barbara) so I did a back to back to prepare the locals. 

I can't stop listing to the new Mean Jeans record. They have constructed a full length "radio jingle" record aptly called "Jingles Collections". All the songs clock under 90 seconds and within this tight audio structure they create hilarious music about their favorite products. I highly recommend it.

The big surprise from this past Sunday New Noize was Ensign Broderick. I don't know who from Six Shooter Records sent me this album but I'm glad they did, it's fantastic. 

NEW FEMI KUTI. Yes, this is as good as it gets and you should be hearing a lot more from Femi Kuti here in the near future. 

Last thing is I finally got myself going on Anchor, give it a listen and let me know what you think: https://anchor.fm/haaris-ahmed/episodes/17bef48. It is a pretty amazing platform and I have loads more to learn in order to refine my show online. If you have any feedback please get at me. If you want to listen to me on Anchor check it here. 

Happy Late Chinese New Year.

Lovers unite! Another Sunday in the books which means another brand spanking new New Noize to share. It's still so early in the 2018 music game and already we have some amazing contenders.

In the 1st hour, I started with the "TalkTalk" the new Perfect Circle track and I have all things crossed that the entire album is a knock out like this single. I am also pretty hyped to see A Perfect Circle at the Arlington Theater here in Santa Barbara come April 17th. I mixed in some new MGMT, *repeat repeat, the Skull Defekts, King Tuff and a huge surprise coming from Matador Records with a single from Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks. I ended hour 1 with a Lovers Block to celebrate everyone favorite Hallmark holiday coming later this week.

Hour 2 was more madness. The other big news coming this week is the opening of Black Panther. So I started hour 2 of New Noize with X, one of the best songs off of Kendrick Lamar's curated Black Panther Soundtrack. Seriously people pick this record up, it's TIGHT! SHIRT also release his full length this past Friday. PURE BEAUTY is out now on thirdman records, definitely pick this one up as well. Personally, I am waiting for Jack White to do some crazy vinyl release for this. I got to play new Screaming Females and anytime I get to play a kick-ass NJ band I miss my home state. Lastly, I tied the show up with this insane Japanese collaboration between Keiji Haino & SUMAC. This record is the definition of coherent insanity.

Later Lovers...

Mustached Farriers and Caribbean Queens agree New Noize is the place to be even on a Super Bowl Sunday. Hey everybody Haaris here with another New Noize. In honor of me working yet another Super Bowl Sunday, I went totally metal for the 1st part of the 1st hour. Why you may ask. It's a combination of 2 teams in the Super Bowl that I could care less about. I mean for reals, who cares if the Patriots or the Eagles win. As a NY Giants fan this game felt like a throwaway until kick off. I am no Switzerland and always pick a side and I had to root for those Philly fans. I love that city! Allen Iverson is one of my favorite athletes of all time and I saw the Gorillaz and MF Doom back in the day on their debit tours. I was glad to see then pull the win and not burn down their city. On top of all that the game was exciting, so I was kinda bummed that I had to cover the Reggae show before New Noize last night, but as Janet (or Miss Jackson if your nasty) says "that's the way love goes".

I started the show off with 2 bands going on tour for one of the most metal cartoons out there right now, Mr. Pickles. Yes, both Exodus & Municipal Waste are going on tour together. Their official promo goes something like this:

Thrash titans Exodus and Municipal Waste are about to embark on a 13 city tour in support of season 3 of Mr. Pickles: TV’s most satanic dog, who’s tunneled through the rib cages and into the hearts of metal fans the world over.
— promo dudes that are working this tour

I am working on doing an interview and giveaways if I can. Keep it here for more info and look out for Mr. Pickles Season 3 premiering on February 25th at midnight EST, on Adult Swim.

The 2nd hour I spun a track off of Amen, Rich Brian's latest album. BIG UPS TO MY ASAIN BROTHER, Rich Brian made history as the 1st Asian to have a number 1 album on iTunes this past Friday. Watchout for 88 rising, they are on a Brainfeeder trajectory. I also played the new track by Car Seat Headrest, "Cute Thing". Man, this guy loves to curse! It took me a little bit to clean that one up but at the end of the day, it was no biggie. This kid keeps putting out music and I keep becoming obsessed with it. 

Back to the Super Bowl. Whenever the NY Giants don't make it I focus on the other big deal during the big game, MOVIE TRAILERS! 

1st one that I lost my mind over was the new Han Solo Trailer:

I knew the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer was going to show up but I didn't know how hyped I was going to act after I saw it. Also, Justice Smith aka Ezekiel from "The Get Down" Netflix series is screaming in every scene in this trailer. If I was stuck on an island full of genetically recreated killer Dinosaurs, I would be screaming the whole time as well. 

IT'S INFINITY WAR TIME!!!! 

The big surprise was the new Cloverfield Trailer. I liked the 1st Cloverfield and the 2nd Cloverfield is connected to the 1st but only by the thinnest of thin strands. The best part about Cloverfield 3 (or as it is officially called "Cloverfield Paradox") as soon as the trailed debuted during the Super Bowl, Netflix released it. So you can watch it right now! I will be watching it this week most definitely. Is it a prequel? Why is it in space? WTF is going on in this trailer? 

The other big thing this week, the remake of Shadow of Colossus drops on the PS4 tomorrow. When I moved to California back in '04 I didn't game much as I was still setting up my life. Shadow of Colossus came out in 2005 and I never played it. 14 years later I am still trying to figure out my life BUT this time I have time to play this highly acclaimed game.  

This was the best part of Sunday:

I'll see you next Sunday.

If you were looking for Grammy highlights you are in the wrong spot party people. Yes, the Grammys were last night and I heard it was one hell of a show! I did pay attention as anyone would in the industry but I also worked during the awards show as New Noize airs on Sunday Night from 9-11PM 

I got to drop new music from Jack White who just released the 3rd song from his upcoming record Boarding House Reach. Straight up this new album is gonna be amazing if you base it solely on the 3 singles that are out there right now. Boarding House Reach is building up to be Jack White's most genre-bending disc yet. 

giphy-3.gif

Dabrye is bringing some serious heat on his new record as well. So far guest spots include Danny Brown, Roc Marciano, Quelle Chris, Ghostface Killah and DOOM!!! 

Going through the 2 hours of New Noize you will see some heavy instrumentally inclined acts. Stimulator Jones new single "Choosey Lover" is the perfect post-1972 groove which belongs on anyone's summer mixtape. Speaking on the 70s Dead Oceans decided to send me the full length from a Texas-based band called Khruangbin. Khruangbin is one of those bands as soon as you hear their music you are mad that you just found out about them. I would love to sit here and tell you that I was down with Khruangbin since day one but that would be a LIE. The truth is I just got on them and their new record Con Todo El Mundo is in constant rotation. This may already be in my top 10 of 2018.  

giphy-1.gif

OH, and did you see that Hop Along is back with new music?! I know I am excited to!

I can go on and on about every act on this week's New Noize playlist but it's so much more fun if you follow New Noize on Spotify, that way you get all updates in real time. 

Until next time humans.
