I am back with another New Noize and I must say comparing my weekly update against everyone else in the "new music" game I feel like a motherfucking Mandalorian. I only played 7 tracks in hour 1, name me another DJ that plays long format songs on radio...I'll wait......

Sorry for the flex but as my therapist says, if no one points out or reflects your accomplishments, you MUST as no one else will.

False hope perhaps
But the truth never got in my way
Before now, feel the sting, feeling time bearing down
Bearing down

To all that reside in the area, I will be at Discovery Ventura this Friday to see Russian Circles, who's coming with me?

Side Side note. I have all 120 shrines in Breath of the Wild. I have the Master Sword & Master Shield. I have to collect 1 final memory at Hyrule Castle, then Ganon is going to meet my master sword. Zelda I'M ON MY WAY!!!!

Last week a wrote a LOT. I'll keep this weeks write up brief.

DISCLAIMER --PLEASE SKIP ABOUT TO BRAG --

WHAT A WEEKEND. I saw the 1st ever Lux Prima show. It was an amazing experience. Danger Mouse took the stage with an additional 10-12 people which included a 4 piece string section and back up singers behind them. Then Karen O walks out in a very shiny gown with a matching shiny crown and we are off to the races. OH did I mention I had front row dead center tickets. Normally, since I do what I do I normally get to go to these events for free but never know where my seats are. This time out I did not get the hook up, which happens and I'm totally cool with, BUT one of my show bros/awesome human Joe somehow scored a pair to opening night and they were the best seats in the house. No one had a better time than me this past Friday night. Heck, I even got a set list. If you get a chance to see this limited time run, do it. This, for me, was a "Top 10 Best Shows" I have ever been to. I will keep this moment until my grey matter starts to deteriorate.

--AND WE ARE BACK--

Another killer New Noize set. Hour one was full of dream pop magic as M83 is BACK! I have to really give it up to Mute Records, they sent me this album a while back and I have been checking with them periodically for the past few weeks on when I could bust a track off this incredible record. I got the green light and let it rip. I can not wait to share the rest of "DSVII" on future New Noize Sundays. I mean check out this video:

...Also DSVII is out on 9/20, the same day as Links Awakening, coincidence? I think so....

You know I had to dive deep on Natasha Khan's new one, Lost Girls. Cover to cover this record by Bat for Lashes rules. I hit some new music from Anamanaguchi later that hour & that Wax Tailor track "The Light" is delicious.

Hour 2 looks more like a typical New Noize show getting chaotic towards the middle of the hour with Cartel Madras, Whitney & Cattle Decapitation (talk about differing genres) then smoothing it out with Shiny Penny at the end.

Before I sign off I just wanted to say good luck to everyone playing Fantasy Football this year. I am in 3 leagues and will be crying 3x more during the regular season, can you taste these tears?

We will need a score for him on 9/16 since his last day is not until 9/19 but that would be the last one.

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.

tumblr_831a4fa06edfcb7cc0d0355d216bc487_3b058ae6_540.gif

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.

tumblr_prft0zpftE1tu0kino3_r1_540.gif

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.

tumblr_pqd1zvNVJv1u7gyjmo3_540.gif

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:

True Colors
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
Dancing Queen
River Deep, Mountain High
With or Without You
We've Only Just Begun

ADDED BONUS: PLAYLIST:

tumblr_pwn9wp967F1usc9y9o6_540.gif

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

Almost the end of summer and I am making the most of it. This past Saturday I saw the Yankees lose to the Dodgers (but they won the series Jerry, yeah I am talking to you!), saw Boris Belchin at exchange and then hit a warehouse party where Incognito was supposedly spinning. My head didn't hit my friends air mattress until about 6AM...So yeah Sunday drive up to Santa Barbara was especially hard since I apparently had to cover the Reggae Soundclash last hour as the Cool Rullah got a last minute call to announce Iration at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Welcome to my life, lucky for me I had the foresight to see this clusterfuck and setup my show Thursday night just in case.

I wanted to start the show off with some of the most exciting news of 2019, KIM GORDON SOLO RECORD! A bit surprising that a solo record is coming so late from this force of nature, but it is. I'm looking forward to hearing how this is going to be different from her work with Sonic Youth, Free Kitten & Body/Head. Check out the single, you will understand.

METZ is out with new old shit with their cover of Sparklehorse's "PIG". OH and talking about METZ they are featured on a new video game soundtrack called "Freedom Finger". I am buying this game for my Nintendo Switch just to listen this insane mix of bands featuring Red Fang, METZ, Power Trip, Com Truise, White Fence, Ty Segall, Makeup and Vanity Set, True Widow, The Radio Dept., Danimal Cannon, Drab Majesty, John Maus, Vektroid, Cleaners from Venus, Male Gaze, Ezee Tiger, The Mall, and more...check this trailer

School maybe in session soon but I'm extending my summer well into next month. I am going to LA next weekend to check Karen O & Danger Mouse on Friday (and hopefully Saturday, label willing). Later that month I will be checking Russian Circles in Ventura & BORIS in Camarillo. There is more on the schedule but it escapes me. What shows are you going to? And more importantly what shows are WE going to?

Also good luck to all who are drafting their Fantasy Football teams. I am in 3 leagues this year.
