sbcltr recommends the music you should be listening to right now
The last month has been an uncharacteristically fruitful time for new releases, as they often say, spring perhaps does bring out the best in people. From hip-hop, to new chill wave, to experimental, alt rock and even a bit of alt disco. This month, we have artists from across genres and across India, giving you music that is as diverse as it is culturally relevant right now. Give it a listen.
Tune In. Tune Out
Over the last one year, this Pune based producer has been composing music that has already amassed him a great deal of popularity and critical acclaim. The end of 2017 saw him closing the year with his abstract.us.(EP) and in February he was back with a brand new four track EP titled Time Is All We Have. He’s followed that up with a brand new single, Sonder, the track draws from the realisation that each person lives a life as complex as your own. It is also accompanied by visual graphics which represent each sound in the track as radial sound-waves. Check it out below.
This Home, That Home, Takar Nabam
The singer-songwriter from Arunachal who is based in New Delhi, recently released his new album which is an introspective take on life. The album is groovy alt rock with solid guitaring. The biggest takeaway from this seven track endeavour is the last song, Receding, which stands out for its smooth musical transition halfway through. Give it a listen.
Essentia, Strike Three
The Mumbai based band recently released it four track EP, Essentia, that has them experimenting with different genres in each song. Solid guitaring and strong solos make this album stand out. Also the fact that it’s a bit old school. Listen to our favourite from the lot below.
