Review:

Susheela Raman's latest release "Music for Crocodiles" falls in line with her previous works "Love Trap" (2003) and "Salt Rain" (2001). It's a soothing blend of ethnic downtempo flavors with bluesy Indian embellished vocals. With its intricate and ear catching music, this album has many strong points, but surprisingly, unlike her previous releases, Susheela's voice is not one of them.

Review:

Wow! Was really NOT expecting that.

This is the sophomore effort by Shri and it shows maturity beyond belief. (To the point that I had to go back and listen to Drum the Bass again to make sure it wasn't my own narrow minded nature that caused me to dislike that album first time around - no it wasn't - it really was worlds behind East Rain.)

Review:

What do you expect from a crew that has dropped some wicked drum n bass on the dl before? You expect the same and much, much more.

Visionary Underground has given us just that. With this album they've hit us with drum n bass, dub, jungle, asian underground all mashed up into one big mess. A cohesive mess. A mess that has taken the talents of Feelfree, Coco and Damion and treated them with the skills of so many artists (the complete list is here) that the album is rockin' all the way through.

Review:

'Rise', the latest release from Anoushka Shankar, can be summed up in a few words; masterful Asian orchestration. It's a gorgeous seductive listen. This album is a skillful mix of organic Indian and non-Indian instruments with a flawless blend of electronic flare.

Review:

Radiohead is probably the only group who has managed to change its sound on a consistent basis and still maintain a core group of fans that are fiercely loyal. Outside that, any artist/group, especially the not-so-well-known ones, need to maintain a stability that their fans can relate to and come back for. Nasha's artists have done just that and, damn have they done it well!
