Summer is here ...
The sun is out more often ...
I can see the Bay Bridge from my window daily :-)
My first summer in California, this - and I just pray and pray that the sun shines for a long long time, this summer. Not that seattle summers were any bad - for the past 3 years, I guess we had the summer season extending almost till Oct.
Was and being treated to an overdose of Carnatic and Carnatic fusion since the past few days. The long weekend was spent with some relatives on the east coast who really gave me and my gal some real 'shots' of Carnatic music. Time well spent and the ears well fed with that music.
Since I have been back, though, I have got my hands at some carnatic fusion stuff including Kadri Gopalnath and other artrists.
Goooool .......(Good + Cool)
Keane - Under the Iron Sea
They sound like Travis...
Wait.... they sound at times like Coldplay....
But wait again ....they sound like Starsailor too ....
Well, what the heck - all Brit groups sound like each other ..thats the conclusion I have finally arrived at....
This album is good though ...a nice one if you liked Keane's first album and if u like soft Brit Rock(or will they call it Pop ???)
Omkara - hindi OST by Vishaal
Omkara's music works ....
It works due to multiple reasons
a) The movie has a nice theme - Othello ..I guess and so the songs have to fit the mood
b) The movie is by Vishal himself and he normally gives good music for his movies
c) Vishal is a good music director
d) I just suffered a big dissapointment which goes by the name of KANK (refer to my earlier post)
e) Rahman still hasn't had a new release :-)
The last two reasons are personal ones and have nuthing absolutely to do with 'Omkara' itself :-)
Rahman - Signature tune for Worldspace
A 1 minute brilliance. Sheer magic. Hear it urself at the Worldspace India site to believe it ....
Rahman rocks ..yet again .....
