IMHO via IndiaPost Live

IndiaPost Live is a great concept, executed fairly well, but poorly received. A friend of mine from journalism college works there and has been kind enough to have me on their discussion shows. You can watch video clips below. This year, the Pakistani band Laal was banned for their controversial stance, their name meaning “red”, referring … Continue reading

I is make 8tracks mixtapes!

Finally got around to making playlists on 8tracks. I used to listen to music almost solely album by album, but over the past two years I’ve gotten out of that habit. Also, I seem to have branched out in terms of genre. Which is good! The mix below has spoken word set to music, with … Continue reading

Debut EP Release: Verse, Chorus, Verse (2012)

For ears that listen and hearts that hear! Vice versa! So finally it feels like I’ve done something with my life. Okay, maybe I shouldn’t start out by building up expectation.

Singata Mystic Queen was the first sting, and then came Double Freedom. Fuck. One amazing album that is Long … Continue reading

Numeros

As most of you know I’ve been focusing on my band a lot these days, besides the cross-country trips of course. Altogether I think we have about 15 songs right now, all composed by me with the individual tracks of each instrument composed by the respective band members, and they’re all sounding pretty good so … Continue reading

Popping The Ink Cherry

Today marks the day I got my first tattoo done. It’s pretty small, about 3 inches tall and a few inches wide, along my right wrist. I’ve always heard that it’s supposed to hurt like hell, and I’ve heard plenty of people recommending all sorts of intoxicants to bear the pain. All I had before … Continue reading

To India, Or Not To India

That is the question. Why is it the question? Well that’s a fair question to ask, judging from the fact that I absolutely despise India and Indians. Trust me, as soon as I land I’ll have my headphones on listening to music so loud not a single Indian accent will pass through my eardrums. Ahem, … Continue reading
