5 stars Albums that are as sonically beautiful as this only come once every couple of years and this is indeed one of my favorite records of 2012 so far.

Tipu Sabzawaar is half of Pakistani duo 6LA8 and while you still see remnants of the band in this project, this is assuredly great in its own right. More of an electronic experimentation than anything, this record is a soothing one but in a much different way than the jam sessions of 6LA8. This is much more smooth and shiny than the sort of jazzy-calm feel you get with the jam sessions and in that way it was a very fun record to get to hear from the project.

Basically one long track with complimented by the six tracks' segues, it's one of those records you can definitely sit down and listen to all the way through, samples aplenty and sound effects just plain beautiful. It drones and sizzles all the way through from it's quiet and considerate start to it's electronically dense ending. It is, to say the least, and epic electronic feat.

It's name-your-price on bandcamp, so giving this album a good listen won't do you any harm. In fact, it's a masterpiece that blows the listener away.

4 stars Evocative and nostalgic, Tipu Sabzawaar's "Misgivings (of Me, Myself and I)", 2012, is as abstract as it is concrete.

Far away from the "sequencer school", Taimur Sheikh's aka Tipu Sabzawaar (or just Tipu), musical idiom is enriched with a polished roughness but above all a very creative and personal songwriting style. That is one of his best attributes I have constantly found in his releases, so far.

Anyway, "Misgivings (of Me, Myself and I)", is in all quiet nostalgic yet detached. Its solitary melody line walks through noise-environments that suggest futuristic spaces of factory like sounds transfigured into multi-ethnic dreamscapes, which enhance the human aspect of the same, therefore one can easily follow this heartfelt trail of breadcrumbs all along the way and feel it like one's own walk.

Great news for the P/E crowd there is life after TD!

****4 "SOLID" PA stars.
