Post Labor Day weekend so you get a Tuesday update. Calm yourselves, I know all 57 of you have been anxiously awaiting this weeks New Noize, so here we go.
Yes I opened New Noize with all 15 minutes and 43 seconds of TOOLs next to last track 7empest (it also bangs the hardest) I for one am happy that Tool is back with their potentially last album. There are only a few stand out songs but Fear Inoculum begs to be listened to cover to cover in it's entirety.
Even though I am on my game sometimes things slip through even my fingers and HOW I could miss the Giraffes new album Flowers in the Cosmos back in April. Well it happened and I'm sorry. If you like that NYC rock then you need to get up on the Giraffes.
IDK who the Shivas are, but if this single is any indication of what this potentially new record is going to sound like, I'm in. Also IDK who ROCH is but I'm glad I rolled the dice, its just plain good.
Hour 2 clearly has more BPM than the hour 1 & that was done on purpose. Stonethorw's Sudan Archives comes with her new single "Confessions" along with new BATTLES! I am seeing Karen O & Danger Mouse later this week down in LA so I had to revisit my favorite song "Down" from Lux Prima.
Lastly there are a lot of things I can go into September (and I will) but I will focus on 1 thing, Carole and Tuesday. This one is for all my music Industry folks. FULL WARNING THIS IS ANIME ITS OK FELLOW HUMANS ITS A LEGIT MEDIUM AND JUST FOR ONCE Please watch Carole and Tuesday.
Shinichirō Watanabe does it AGAIN and through this anime weaves a whimsical look into the current music industry referencing current trends, sentiments and technology. I have always been a fan of Watanabe as he is one of the only Anime directors that depicts so much diversity for human and non-humans alike. This is the guy who did Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. I have only made it to episode 4 but I can say Carole and Tuesday has some of the best original music I have heard in 2019.
~~~TANGENT: I AM VERY AWARE I JUST WROTE ABOUT CANON BUSTERS, SPECIFICALLY ABOUT HOW DIVERSE THE ANIME CHARACTERS ARE AND HOW GOOD THE MUSIC IS. WELL YEAH, WE GOT LUCKY BUT LETS KEEP THIS TREND GOING. ALSO THE MUSIC IN CANON BUSTERS IS REALLY GOOD, BUT CAROLE & TUESDAY IS IN ITS CONCEPT A SHOW THAT REVOLVES AROUND THE ENTITY KNOWN AS MUSIC~~~
The timeline takes place a decade from now (maybe more) on Mars and there are SO MANY relevant references to music/artists/bands/art/etc you will have to re-watch this series just to catch'em all. I'm pretty sure they put FKA TWIGS in this anime. The story follows 2 artists struggling to find their voice, dealing with adult hood, surviving the city of Alba, and navigating the "industry" while cultivating their new found friendship. Carole and Tuesday come from 2 very different worlds but so far these differences do not deter this blossoming relationship. In fact, much like real life friendships their history is revealed AFTER they make the universal connection, and that connection is music. It feels so familiar, to be young and meet a complete stranger & become in sync within nanoseconds through the cosmic magic of liking the same audio frequency. This initial connection is elusive but when it happens, it for me is the best thing about being human. I speak from personal experience and thats what Shinichirō Watanabe has captured. This moment, this felling, this magic, this instance in episode one and carries it throughout the series. Feels like my youth, feels like NYC.
I am currently working on trying to get some of the original music from this anime onto New Noize, so stay tuned for that. For now I have compiled a fun playlist based on the episodes in chronological order, oh yeah in the mid-transitions of these episodes Watanabe flashes a 45s. The 45s are are real, and they are also the title of that particular episode (Watanabe you are my boy, you are my GOD). So here is the episode list of that are currently available on Netflix. Again YES these are the titles for each episode:
Born to Run
Fire and Rain
Video Killed the Radio Star
Every Breath You Take
Life Is a Carnival
Show Me The Way
All the Young Dudes
River Deep, Mountain High
With or Without You
We've Only Just Begun
ADDED BONUS: PLAYLIST:
The 2nd 1/2 of Carole and Tuesday will be releasing hopefully soon on Netflix. For now, especially if you are in the music industry watch this.
Did I mention that both Flying Lotus and Thundercat are in this anime? Yeah they are in this anime
