Album Review

The cover of this CD shows the intersection of India Street and Manhattan Avenue — a most appropriate image, given the nature of the album. Dum Dum Project members Sean "Cavo" Dinsmore, Jason Goodrow, and Phil Painson manage to balance on the fine line between Eastern and Western electronica, borrowing some of the best elements from each without ever going fully over into one or the other. The exotic sounds of the ektara and the sitar mix with keyboards and guitar. Tight basslines underscore each track, while a dozen Indian vocalists including Asha Puthli and Bhagavan Das pepper the album with chants, mantras, and Eastern warbles.
