Stoop Kids ‘Got Soul’ to Share


New Orleans genre-bending masters Stoop Kids dropped a new single on Thursday — the latest and final track ahead of the band’s new mixtape Queue, which will be released at midnight. The band’s signature doo-hop (a mix of hip hop and doo wop) is well repped in the new track, fittingly called “Got Soul.” 


Gypsyphonic Remixes Mardi Gras


Galactic's Ben Ellman and DJ Quickie Mart built up a quick following after two servings of Balkan Bounce in their side project Gypsyphonic Disko. For their next project, the pair decided to come back home for Carnival, using nostalgic Mardi Gras classics as a base for a bounce remix. 


Anamanaguchi's Playlist


By Ary Warnaar

Hola Nola- and hola video game instrumentors Anamanaguchi. Peter Berkman, James DeVito, Ary Warnaar, and Luke Silas make ‘chiptune punk’, music created from outdated technological consoles, from computers to gameboys- and it’s as raw as digital gets. 


Getting In Their Mix

Familiar Faces From Soulive, Galactic Duck Behind The Tables For Friday Night Sets

Hola Nola: Vol XLVII

Jazzfest Cube Critique



Hola Nola, and hola the first non-celebrity music mixtape in weeks. The original Hola Nola hop skip and jump is back to address the announcing of the cubes - the Jazzfest cubes, that is. The schedule is out for this year's fete at the Fair Grounds, and decisions must be made. The following playlist goes through my top two choices per day, and the sacrifices that will need to be made when circling (in pencil) the who/what/where from April 29th-May 8th.


Ra Ra Riot

Hola Nola: A Celebrity Mixtape Series- Vol VIII



Hola Nola- and hola Syracuse Stringin’, Indie pop singin’ Ra Ra Riot. These folks are off and running after a demo, four EPS, and two hit full lengths, numerous smash singles (not to mention honorable remixes of such tunes, aka Passion Pit’s ‘Ghost Under Rocks’ edit) feature film soundtrack fame, oh, and a country-wide tour. Lucky for us, the next stop is Foburg, TONIGHT.


The Hood Internet

Hola Nola: A Celebrity Mixtape Series- Vol VI



Hola Nola- and Hola Chi-town mashup duo ‘Steve Sleeve’ Reidell Aaron Brink, aka The Hood Internet. With close to 200 remixes to their name, the pair have established a name for themselves.


Alex McMurray

Hola Nola: A Celebrity Mixtape Series- Vol V



Hola Nola- and hola storytelling, Chazfesting, Alex McMurray, king of the local music grind, and father of keeping his colleagues in (and around) the Jazz Fest scene. Whether going solo or jumping in with two, three, and four piece bands (hola the Valparaiso Men’s Chorus, hola the Tin Men), Alex has made a name for himself as a man of music and musings, generously sharing words through thought and song. 


Alt Grammy Noms

Hola Nola: Vol. XXXXVI



Hola Nola, and Hola the 53rd Annual Grammys, an award ceremony that possibly outweighs the Oscars in rapid deterioration of standards and integrity loss.
