I saw Kanye!!!! Yup I was one of the few (or many deepening on your POV) that got invited to witness the Kanye West x Kid Kudi album listening party. I know I was surprised when I got he cloak and dagger email from def jam records. I was told to go to in Hollywood and then get bussed to "a secret location" in Santa Clarita with a bunch for industry folks. As soon as I arrived to the actual listing party it was packed with other radio ppl, record label peoples, crazy amounts of models and so many hip-hop heads. I shook down with RZA and could have left after that, but I stayed. Saw Damon Dash talking with Irv Gotti. Legit hung out with Lizzo, who is awesome and fun. Kanye at one point was like 2 feet away from my face, he saw me & gave me the nod (I was on cloud 9999). Kid Kudi actually walked up to me and asked me who I was & how I was doing. He was really nice for the 3 minutes we talked, then as he was leaving he hit me with Assalamualaikum?! I was like how does this dude know I am Muslim? Then I remembered I am still in Ramadan and wore my Pakistani hoodie, it MADE MY NIGHT! Kim Kardashian is pretty short in real life. I got free merch, and food (burgers, fried chicken, collard greens, Mac and Cheese, plus more. I was a fan.

Talking fans IT'S e3. E3 is my Super Bowl nd this year's installment is pretty good. Surprisingly Microsoft had a solid e3, but as I type this PlayStation has not done their keynote. Looking forward to the rest of e3 and be sure come next New Noize I will have a full recap of all the things I wanna talk about.

This week's New Noize playlist brought you a bunch of new music from bands you already know. New Smashing Pumpkins, Interpol, Ghost, Neko Case and the Mad Caddies. Talking Mad Caddies their latest LP is all cover songs, and you know I love me a motherf*cj=king cover song. I also dropped new cover by Meiko, who covers Portishead's "Wandering Star". Surprise EP drop by Daniel Avery and its excellence. Big ups to Kiefer, I have been following him on Instagram and it's always nice to see him get some shine as his new record is out right now on Stonesthrow. Kanye 3rd drop in the past 3 weeks and its the best one yet! Kids See Ghosts is a collab album between himself and Kid Kudi AND EVERY TRACK IS A BANGER! Grab it and listen to it over and over.

I had a huge write up ready BUT life is happening so I'm just gonna hit the highlights. Ok just one highlight

I AM NEVER PLAYING CHAI AGAIN ON NEW NOIZE!!!! Wait what? Well that statement isn't entirely true, I'm sure they will make it on the "Best Of New Noize 2018". I played Chai 11 weeks in a row. They have 11 tracks. One could deduce using very little logic that I played every track off their album "Pink". I did, in order no less over the past 11 weeks. I don't do this for most records, it is a RARE occasion (I did do this for Habibi, but that was only for an EP not a full length). I can't say anymore amazing things about Chai, their album Pink and how incredible it truly is. Not a-lot of records contain this much diversity with a signature sound with so much fun and flare. This quartet of fantastic Japanese ladies have swooned this DJ and New Noize. Congrats!

What a week in Santa Barbara! Katy Perry came through with her hometown benefit concert at the SBBowl, Modest Mouse played the Arlington and I saw none of these shows, sad face. I did, however, see Deadpool 2 and I must say that this movie was 10s across the board. I would go as far as to say that Deadpool 2 was better than Avengers Infinity War. 

giphy-2.gif

New Noize came through with all 10s this week as well. I was hammered with an overabundance of new music and had to use my magic to condense this playlist down to 2 hours. 

Hour 1 started off with the new Protomartyr featuring Kelley Deal (of the motherfuckin Breeders) "Wheel of Fortune" & followed up with some Clutch. Later in hour #1 I spun hometown heroes the Mad Caddies covering Green Days' "She" and got to premiere one of my favorite artist of the last 5 years, Mitski new single "Geyser". Talking about Mitski for a minute, my expectations of her new record is set to very high as she is a force to be felt. I hit some deeper tracks with Potatohead People & Arctic Monkeys. 

HOW GOOD IS THE NEW NINE INCH NAILS?!?!?!?! Sounds like Trent Reznor is channeling his inner David Bowie and oh my Atticus Ross these beats are bananas. Man, when those horns kick my face starts to melt. Jungle made it onto the playlist and I am very curious to hear what the rest of the album sounds like. An indescribable sound came from the band known as Black Moth Super Rainbow and they just keep getting stranger with every album and I can't get enough. Lastly, I did hit 2 songs from Japan via Chai and BABYMETAL, both bands you should be up on.

And I'll be all up on you next Sunday.
