III (Music review), Indipop – Rabbi

Posted by Karthik

Ganga‘s country’ish drawl and wonderful guitaring are enticing, as it always had been, since this is a much-heard Rabbi song from shows like MTV Unplugged. Cabaret Weimar, despite evoking intriguing German connections, is rather showy in a typical Punju-rap way, but with some wicked guitar, and keyboards by Andrew Rosario Ferrao. Much like Tu hae khubsurat, that uses Brennon Deffer’s guitar to magical effect amidst what seems like Indian rhythms; this one’s hook ‘Tu hae khubsurat’ is a killer! Tu hi is the most inventive track of the album – mesmerizing aria vocals by Christine Matovich Singh, wrapped in a forcefully impactful pop-rock base and some amazing lyrics. Zero dubidha and Eho hamara jeevna are sober, with beautiful tunes; the former with a pensive, slow rock style and the latter with a nostalgic whiff of Bulla. Labhda eyn jihnun mixes acoustic guitar with acoustic piano wonderfully well, but with only a functional tune while Aadhi kranti is forceful, rebel rock with scintillating guitar and superb lyrics! The lone instrumental track, the short Song for Picku is strangely the best of the album – absolutely stunning tune played solo by Rabbi on electric guitar. Rabbi’s third album is a clear winner.
