SOUND SCAPEALBUM REVIEW

SOUND SCAPEALBUM REVIEW

DJANGO UNCHAINED ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK
ARTIST VARIOUS ARTISTS
Tarantino’s flicks are generally iconic for the following elements – guns, violence, magnificent scripts, and of course, a mesmerising original sound track. This album is heavily informed by classic Western music which features catchy soundbites from the movie itself. But it’s not just the sound of twangy strings, purring trumpets, and vintage south-western grit that define the album, as it is also prominently lined with contemporary elements like rap, as well as other influences like retro funk and soul. Amongst the artists featured in this sound track are John Legend, Rick Ross, American singer Anthony Hamilton, and some of the best composers around. While some might argue that OSTs can only be enjoyed after watching the movie itself, a glance of the trailer would suffice to connect with the tastefully hard-sold theatrics of the Django Unchained OST.

TRILOGY
ARTIST THE WEEKND
Suppose you’re new to Abel Tesfaye a.k.a The Weeknd, here’s a tip (especially if you’re Asian) – never play this album in front of your folks’. It’s got lyrics that are explicit enough to leave them squirming! But nonetheless, Trilogy is one of those albums that deserve your precious attention. Basically, it’s a repackaging. A compilation of three mixtapes, House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence, the songs are an unorthodox combo, mostly about sex, drugs and women. But it sounds fresh; as if someone has breathed new life into R&B.

ASIABEAT ANTHOLOGY
ARTIST LEWIS PRAGASAM & FRIENDS
Easily one of the best and most renowned Malaysian drummers around, Lewis Pragasam has played alongside some of the biggest names in both the local and international scene over the past few decades. He is also the founder of Asiabeat, a Malaysian based ‘World Music’ group. In his efforts to promote the evolution of the arts and to do charity, Lewis has released this 6-CD box set that contains every Asiabeat recording that has been compiled over the years as well as a 50-page Booklet filled with archival photographs, articles and more.
