Music Gras

NoDef's Annual Mardi Gras Playlist



Fat Tuesday is upon us! The hours are slipping away before New Orleanians must once again pack their favorite Carnival albums and wait a year. If you don't feel like strolling down Bourbon St. in the interim, NoDef has put together a playlist for you with all the classics from Dr. John to Al "Carnival Time" Johnson. Very few cities have music for every season, and none have better music in any season than New Orleans.

Click through to listen to our annual 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 Peter Berkman, James DeVito, Ary Warnaar, and Luke Silas make ‘chiptune punk’, music created from outdated technological consoles, from computers to gameboys- and it’s as raw as digital gets. 


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.
