The first track on the album is incredible. It’s called “Achilles Heart (Hanuman Steals The Bow And Arrow)," and it’s got some great string work from beginning to end. It almost reminds me of Patrick Watson for a while, but other songs on the album are much more accessible. In any case, this is an incredibly tasteful song. If you listen to it and aren’t captivated, just head on to the next track and see if you like his pop “O Sangeeta” better. It’s a bit more immediately consumable.
“How Can Love Be Wrong?” is my favorite on the album. This track has lots of interesting production. The arrangement is constantly surprising and fulfilling. The electronic sounds really fit, and the reverb on the vocals is very effective. This is a very strong song both on the surface and once you really dig into the lyrics.
If you’re in Dallas, find this guy and give him some great encouragement! If not, these songs are well worth a listen.
