Boomkat product review for:

k.s. chithra - K.S. Chithra

**Truly stunning, obscure plugged-in pop from 1986-91 Kollywood (South India) and the dream-teaming of "Little Nightingale" K.S. Chitra, with maverick film score arranger/songwriter Ilaiyaraaja. Beautifully floral falsettos meet sweeping electronics, ornate drum machine patterns and fantastical sample orchestrations in a feverish dream for fans of that incredible 'Play That Beat Mr. Raja' oddity or Ilaiaraaja's bonkers 'Solla Solla' sessions. Highly recommended!** "There are few records you will hear this year that combine the sounds of a child's choir, a DX7 bass line, three types of drum machine, a mariachi trumpet cry, a resampled forty-piece orchestra and an electronic bass line that takes the moog taurus by the horns and rides into the Indian summer. There is probably less chance of hearing a vocal performance so confusingly dazzling that it instantly detracts from from the previously aforementioned wish list combination of bizarre instruments but for those intrepid enough to dig a little deeper and take a detour due East, pick-axing right where Lollywood meets Bollywood - then prepare to be rewarded with a double, triple and quadruple whammy! Often locally discussed behind the limelight of her wider continental contemporaries such as Asha Bosle and Noor Jehan it is almost impossible to find adequate comparison to K.S. Chitra. Try taking the yearning vocal energy of Turkey's Selda and the falsetto range of Morricone's best Italian choirs, add the playful existentialism of Poland's Urszala Dudziak and the cinematic pedigree of Asha then sprinkle some saccharine Jane Birkinisms on top and set your turntable pitch at plus 8 while you dream of Dots And Loops era Stereolab or a Malayalam Mantronix - alternatively just buy this first-time compendium and press play."
