Twice The Holiday Feel-Good Vibe From NYC Indie Rockers

The Baghdaddios Celebrate Homeless Benefit’s 20th Anniversary – and Release a Brand New Holiday Single! For 25 years The Baghdaddios have churned along, trolling the seedier dive bars of New York City that were fortunate enough to have a sound system and a cabaret license.  Occasionally they graced the spotlight of some higher profile venues (including their third-ever show at iconic punk birthplace CBGB).  Somewhere along the way, between the indie CD releases, music videos, trips to other countries and criss-crossing various part of the U.S., they got a bright idea in their 5th year that resulted in the proverbial

The BoyEatsGirl “Zugzwang” Interview

Australian extreme metal project BoyEatsGirl is driven by one man – Rick ‘Cleveland’ Pinto who launched the project in late 2015. BoyEatsGirl has since been establishing itself as a favorite extreme metal project: Pinto is one of the few underground artists to offer a complete conceptual and experiential package in the genre – food for the heart, mind and senses, as intellectually stimulating as it is emotionally intense. BoyEatsGirl creates a nice balance of standard, aggressive metal riffs, intermingled with fast, monstrous, ultra-heavy, ultra-complex mechanical cyber-grinding percussion, and a crazed use of sonic extremities. Also, there is use of growling vocals, which produces a thick, beastly, darkly regal, searingly

Prilho: “Stay” is set to become a favorite of modern club culture

Although only a couple of years into a career as a DJ and producer, Prilho has quickly become one to watch on the EDM scene, not only in his native Portugal but across the European dance scene as a whole. “Stay” is a song which pulses with the positivity and euphoria of the contemporary dance sound, it glows with great vibes and even though it is built on a fairly mid-paced tempo, its clever use of dynamics, its ability to build musical peaks and sonic troughs means that it is packed with punch, but it is punch which comes from

Han Sino & Parth Patadiya: “A Murder In Me: The SCoRe” – has a spirituality about it

Han Sino is a hardworking sound designer and spoken word artist justly admired for his music and various releases. However, his remarkable soundtrack for Parth Patadiya’s short film “A Murder In Me” may be his masterpiece, so far. It is, apart from being just the right underscore to this provocative film, music that more than holds its own on its own. Sino uses what sound like familiar movie tropes, suggesting at times Copland, at other times, Morricone or Hans Zimmer, at all times Han Sino. It’s deliciously dark music, poignant, haunting, very lean and muscular. It has a spirituality about it, a menace at times, and a sad desolation. But it’s always very listenable.

Han Sino

The 10-track album titled “A Murder In Me: The SCoRe”, is in reality based on two original tracks, segmented and elaborated into various thematic versions which focus on specific instrumental tones. I was both delighted and enthralled by the pieces composed for this work.

The tantalizing variations on the compositions actually caused me to pay more attention to them. This might be some of the most emotional pieces Han Sino has written. It’s minimalistic but oh so poignant. It’s a far cry from his usual Nu Jazz, Rare Groove, and Trip Hop soundscapes, and probably that’s what makes it so interesting to listen to.

It is always a challenge to hear artists move outside of their comfort zone, and Han Sino’s attempt is nothing short of impressive. He has captured the essence of Parth Patadiya’s stunning visuals and affecting storyline.

The short film which narrates the story of a young man who suffers from a dangerous mental disease called OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), is extremely taught and particularly distressing in parts, holding the viewer in absolute apprehension until the final frame.

Patadiya displays tight writing and directing skills. He uses strong, economical dialogue, while his visuals capture essential moments of color, texture, and sound, as well as evocative, raw imagery. Moreover the director’s emotional connection to the material demonstrates a powerful point of view.

Parth Patadiya

The lives of the Indian urban youth is one of the major topics that Parth Patadiya deals with in his movies. This particular movie, though dark and discomforting also hold moments of hope.

Han solo on the other hand shows the same empathy for the storyline. Composer Frank Ilfman once said: “To convey emotions through music that touch the listener and ultimately unite the whole film, you must have a sense for the dramatic. You need to feel the music, not just hear it. That’s where the real gift is”. Solo executes that thought process effortlessly.

His music is deep, intimate and intense. The blend of orchestral depth on “A Murder In Me (Part 1): Main Theme” and the scattered suspenseful motifs further on into the soundtrack makes this score meaningful from start to end. And no matter what happens, when the airy flutes or the haunting violins are given the stage, the music will just leave you breathless.

Included in the album is a track called “Barking Pigeon” which features the vocals of Parth Patadiya. Apparently besides his film work, Patadiya is also a singer, songwriter and musician. This is the very first track the both Parth Patadiya and Han Sino collaborated on. It may be hard to believe on first listening, but the soundtrack, “A Murder In Me: The SCoRe”, was completed in less than 3 days.
