Album Review: Gordi, Reservoir

Debut from Australian folktronica artist.

Having enjoyed both critical acclaim and an endorsement from label partner Bon Iver, the debut record from Australian writer Sophie Peyton, aka Gordi, always went to draw a lot of attention. If Peyton feels some tension about the dreaded “next big thing” label, then it surely does not manifest itself on Reservoir, an album which was listed over different continents.

Having a focus on relationship insanity, Gordi’s sultry tone and lyrics set her distress front and center. A complete case in point is ‘Heaven I Know’, using its wracked lines, “Wear me out/ all strung out”. There is oodles of emotion here, and Reservoir is improved by its mixture of instrumentation. Throughout, it combines synths, piano and guitar to spellbinding effect, together with the likes of ‘Bitter End’ and ‘Can We Work It Out’ modernising folk in a fashion very similar to Bon Iver.

All told, this is a group of folktronica. Reservoir is an unbelievable debut.

 

Jai Lava Kusa music review: Peppy, Lively Tunes for All Junior NTR’s triple roles

The Jai Lava Kusa record is an ode to Ravana. Except for a single track, most songs have a Ravana motif to them and the Devi Sri Prasad (DSP) record has most components except one. What the sound is missing is a course; the type where there’s plenty and mo of melody.

Created by Kalyanram, Jai Lava Kusa starring Jr.. NTR, Rashi Khanna, Nivetha Thomas and Ronit Roy is pitted as an action play with NTR playing with roles . While the film hits theaters on 21 September, the music media match was held last night (September 3) from the crew and cast.

As lovers wait to watch the celebrity in three roles, here is what we thought of this newest DSP album.

Raavana

Raavana is your lively, pounding tune of this record. With hard hitting lyrics from Chandrabose, this one is devoted to Jr NTR’s function as Jai from the movie. Together with Asura references, the monitor observes Raavana along with his or her traits. On the vocals is Divya Kumar and this one’s a makeup that you will wind up singing along to and both dancing. Divya Kumar’s vocals reminds us of his past hit ‘Hey Ganaraya’ from ABCD two for this one.

After viewing the Jai Lava Kusa teaser, an individual can quickly relate to NTR performing a kickass portrayal of the ferocious tune.

Tring Tring

Tring Tring is your peppy amount of this record and seems like It’s devoted to Rashi Khanna and NTR as Lava. The chorus is very catchy and certainly will make you singing Tring Tring ting da ting pretty much the entire day. Jaspreet Jasz & Ranina Reddy have lent their voice for this song. Tring Tring gets the signature DSP style in regards to peppy melodies.

Nee Kallalona

Nee Kallalona is a tune with a stunning twist. What starts off as a light hearted, enjoy monitor, abruptly transforms into ‘Asura Asura Ravanasuda’. The beats are subtle and that is what sticks to get this particular track. The song turns extreme and revengeful. From the looks of this, the tune could have Nivedha Thomas and NTR as Jai, the Ravan bhakt from the Movie.

Dochestha

Dochestha starts off with a kuthu design, whistles at the background galore, and then proceeds as a celebratory track. Nakash Aziz is observed singing with Lord Krishna references. It’d be interesting to see which part in the film NTR seems similar to in this one. The tune for the time being, seems like a audience puller that is possible.

I wonder which one of those paths would Tamannah Bhatia include in, as recent reports indicate the celebrity is going to have a particular look in among Jai Lava Kusa’s tunes.

**

In the conclusion of listening to this brief and sharp record, there’s 1 word which will run in your mind the entire day: ‘Asura’.

Devi Sri Prasad does a fantastic job at writing tracks for your Raavana-motivated portrayal in the film. In 3 tunes, we’ve got the theme. The record leaves us wanting for a romantic course, but on a deeper evaluation of this record of Jai Lava Kusa, it feels like that was a conscious decision from the manufacturers to adhere into the beats.

This NTR and Devi Sri Prasad mix was better than their previous stint at Janatha Garage, but the record for a bundle doesn’t transcend the audio in the manager’s previous hit monitors, from movies like Mirchi, Gabbar Singh, Arya two etc..

K-Pop Legend Seo Taiji Holds 25th Anniversary Concert, Passes Torch to BTS

 K-pop’s a fully-fleshed business in 2017, however in 1992 Seo Taiji (Jung Hyun Chul) & Boys shocked Korea’s pop business to its present condition with “Nan Arayo” (“I Know”), a hip leaning dance track which sparked the country’s mad for idol-oriented music.

On Saturday (Sept. 3), Seo took fans on a trip through his past strikes before proclaiming boy group BTS his musical successors throughout his 25th Day Time: Traveler concert.

With 35,000 fans in life, Seo, called the “President of Culture” at South Korea, went via the sonic background of his profession, including the songs of Seo Taiji & Boys, that functioned as the model for its multitude of K-pop functions to follow, and lots of his solo hits. He performed two dozen tunes from various eras of his profession through the two and a half hour-long concert, reports that the Korea Times.

The series, a part of Lotte Card’s Moov: Sound Track vol. Two job, was held on Sept. 2, the exact same day a special 25th anniversary record was released comprising Seo’s greatest hits together with remakes of his own tunes by other Korean actions, such as R&B trio Urban Zakapa — who served as concert organizers together with rock group Gukkasten — Crush, Heize, Suran, Younha, Eddy Kim, Loopy & nafla, along with BTS.

With many tunes of their own that address the hardships confronting South Korean youth and hip-hop and society leanings on par with Seo Taiji & Boys’, the latter act served as backup vocalists and dancers for eight songs of the concert, replacing Yang Hyun Suk, now the head of YG Entertainment, and Lee Juno as Seo’s Boys for the night. During the show, Seo acknowledged BTS’ thematic similarities among K-pop’s most acts.

There were a selection of reiterations of all Seo who have led as a pioneer of tendencies in South Korea. Seo pursued rock music and became a part of this metallic group Sinawe before forming Seo Taiji & Boys from the, where he served as the frontman and main songwriter of the team. The trio produced history beginning with hit after hit resonating with South Korea’s viewers and sparking the tendency for youthful songs from groups. Adhering to the action’s split in 1996, Seo returned into his rock leanings in 1998 and has since released nine studio albums, including his latest record, 2014’s Quiet Night.

Despite being acknowledged as the beginning of the music fad, a lot of Seo’s songs, both as a soloist and while at Seo Taiji & Boys, has veered towards alt-rock, electro-pop, along with nu-metal. His heritage spans generations in the nation, where he is also considered one of the earliest forerunners of popular music which criticized the South Korean authorities and addressed social ills, leading to being among those most-censored musicians of his generation.
