It's a new week which means a brand spanking new New Noize. We are barely past the 3-week mark and there is already an overload of amazing music to behold. 

This past Sunday I attempted to hit a whole bunch of genres rather than focus on a central theme. Despite my best intentions, I may have failed in this attempt as a nice chunk of these tracks have a "jammy instrumental" feel. Kicked off the show with new Jack White "Respect Commander" which is myriad of sounds and guitars, new Suuns which is 5+ mins of melodramatic feels, Xylouris White "Only Love" hits that international upbeat sound, NEW YO LA TENGO which is kinda like old Yo La Tengo (it's a good thing) and the smooth instrumentals of "Miss U" by Stones Throw artist Kiefer. Another band that may possibly make your Top 10 best new albums of 2018 is Khruangbin "Friday". Unfortunately, Spotify hasn't got any of their new music thus not making it to the New Noize Spotify playlist. If you like instrumentals then you will love Khruangbin, your pitchfork self will thank you.

To my surprise Of Montreal is coming out with a new record and shockingly their new single is indescribably catchy. I also dropped new Franz Ferdinand, Awolnation, and new Eels! The world always shines a bit brighter when there is new Eels music to be had. 
  
In other non-New Noize news Cal-Trans has cleaned up the 101 and it is now open and flowing with traffic! Santa Barbara really needed some good news and it will be nice to get our mail once again. Talking good news I got to see both White Reaper and Spoon at the Arlington Theater and both delivered. I have never seen White Reaper live and was glad I got there early to check out their opening set. They freaking RIP and I highly recommend seeing this band live. Spoon killed it as they normally do. I haven't seen Spoon in at least a decade and it's safe to say they have not lost their magic. Their live production was subtle and their sound was like listening to them in a studio setting, I'm talking SUPER TIGHT. The set list read like a "Greatest Hits by Spoon" session and there was no one sitting in their assigned seats for their entire set.

LAST THING come this Friday 2 games are dropping, the new Monster Hunter World and the new Dragonball Fighters Z. I want both these games but it looks like I will be all about Dragonball Fighters Z. Here are some highlights of Dragonball Fighters Z Beta:

Before you start blasting me don't worry, I will be getting on my Monster Hunter game as well. I mean I did have a blast with the Beta as you can see:

I just need 3 more squad members to play with on a regular basis to hunt some freaking monsters, any takers? My name is MenglerMeng on the PSN.

And with that, I leave you until next time.
