I very clearly remember the first time I watched New York Noise, the hour-long, late-night program on NYC TV centered around music videos and interviews with bands, all of the indie-rock persuasion, as they traped through the city. With the show's shoestring budget, 90s-vibing graphics, and devotion to spotlighting up-and-comers, it was a dead ringer for MTV-style programming in its golden age, back when the "M" stood for "music." Apparently I wasn't the only one who fell in love with it. The show, a pet project of creator-producer-editor Shirley Braha, had gained a nice little cult following by the time it ended its seven-year run in 2009.
Fittingly, Braha now moves over to MTV, where her new show, Weird Vibes, essentially picks up where New York Noise left off, rotating through of-the-moment buzz makers (Odd Future, Best Coast, Twin Shadow, etc.) during half-an-hour segments of videos, interviews and live footage. We've got the trailer above, so you can rest assured that the early-90s Saved by the Bell look still stands, too. The first episode airs tomorrow on MTV Hive — not the actual television version, because that would be too much music for MTV execs to handle, but the online format. All the same!
