If you are in the mood for something outside the mainstream, and you dig global electronica/downtempo sound, I highly recommend, Karsh Kale’s new album, Broken English.
Recorded in five cities and on two continents, this album features a talented cast of collaborators such as Trixie Reiss (The Crystal Method), film composer Salim Merchant (one half of the “it” Bollywood composer team, Salim-Sulaiman) and Dierdre (Ekova), Broken English is Kale’s most diverse. Two days after it’s release, Broken English is in the top fifteen ITunes Electronic Charts. It is a truly global sound.
In that same genre, I recommend Thievery Corp’s AOL Sessions, Gotan Project’s Diferente, and Ursula 1000’s latest release, Here Comes Tomorrow.
