Milliblog Weeklies – JUL22.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 33: On Apple Music | On Saavn | On YouTube 27 songs this week. Unfortunately, terrible availability across platforms this week too! So, Apple Music comes on top, with 21 songs. Saavn and YouTube fare far worse, with 13 and 12 songs, respectively 🙁 […]

13

13 years of Milliblog. That’s 13 years of a hobby! From the post where I wrote about completing 12 years, where I had briefly alluded to the point, 13th has been significant. As I had reflected in my post last year, I finally took the plunge and stopped doing reviews for all/most soundtracks. And moved […]

Yuvan’s first interlude in Dhooramaai is quite literally like soaking into the beauty of a cool, green mountain, as the music simply flows. Vijay Yesudas adds to the effect with his exquisite singing too, while Vairamuthu’s lyrics imaginatively allude to the maternal instincts, in both the anupallavi (“Inge thondrum siriya malai, iyarkkai thaayin periya mulai, […]

Milliblog Weeklies – JUL15.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 32: On Apple Music | On Saavn | On YouTube 33 songs, this week. Yes, these days are full of fantastic music! Saavn comes close, with 29 songs (still missing Coke Studio Explorer, which are YouTube-only as of now). The only other song missing […]

Of the two songs by Anurag Saikia, Chota Sa Fasana is an easy winner. Written by the film’s director Akarsh Khurana, it plays beautifully on the ‘safar’ theme of the film, and mellow tune is right up Arijit Singh’s alley. Anurag’s other song, Heartquake, is interesting for two reasons: one, the 2 variants he presents […]

Lakshmi (Music review), Tamil – Sam C.S.

Morrakka Mattrakkaa is a beautifully constructed joyous outburst of a song. Uthara Unnikrishnan’s exuberant and innocent voice carries it as much as Madhan Karky’s inventive lyrics cheekily inverting the genders of famous dancers like Michael Jackson, Hrithik Roshan, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Prabhu Deva himself! Pappara Pappaa goes one step ahead, imbibing the energy of present-day […]

Milliblog Weeklies – JUL08.2018

Milliblog Weeklies – India’s only multilingual, weekly new music playlist. Week 31: On Apple Music | On Saavn | On YouTube One more packed musical week – 28 songs! All 3 platforms come up short, though Saavn is the best among the 3. Please do read the notes and do check out the ones that […]

Simbu seems particularly in great form with his exaggerated singing in Mr.X, amidst the flashy EDM that Yuvan unleashes! Pattukutty Neethan is Yuvan at his vintage best! The melody is incredible, the music is almost hypnotic, and the singing… well, abysmal, courtesy Yuvan himself! Kaadhal Gaana is Yuvan letting V.M. Mahalingam belt out a superb […]

Sean Roldan’s grungy voice goes wonderfully with the moody tune of Edhuvaraiyo! Anirudh rolls out his mysterious, Moby-style backgrounds only after the first minute, raising the stakes! Kalyaana Vayasu, sung by Anirudh himself, is incredibly catchy. Sivakarthikeyan’s lyrics seem influenced by Simbu, particularly that ‘Wait pannava’ line! In Orey Oru, when Anirudh goes, ‘Sathamaai naan […]

In Sanjith Hegde’s dreamy voice, the waltz’y Shaakuntle Sikkalu sounds delightful, with a soft lilt that is immediately addictive. Supriya Lohith does the honors for Kannu Kannu, a saccharine-sweet melody that evokes pleasant memories of A R Rahman’s Kissa Hum Likhenge, from Doli Saja Ke Rakhna. Ele Vayasina is decidedly more energetic than the earlier […]
