Reseña de álbum

Koushik Ghosh is an admitted fan of Madlib, so it must have been overwhelming for him to be signed to his idol's label, Stones Throw. Be With, a collection of his three EPs on one CD, appeared one year prior to the 2006 release of his debut album, Out My Window, but Koushik is not what you might expect to come out of a Stones Throw release. Yes, he's a producer and a vocalist (though Koushik sings, not raps), but he creates melodic and textural works reminiscent of '60s psych-pop, Shuggie Otis, or even Beck. Koushik's soft, airy voice (styled perhaps on his heroes My Bloody Valentine) doesn't act as the main attraction: rather, he uses it as a DJ would, as another sound to add to his songs. His words aren't meant to be understood, they're just supposed to flow in and out of the piece like every other component, and the elongated syllables add a nice contrast to the frequent speed and confusion in the instrumentation. Koushik is big on build-up — starting out with a simple bassline, a few chords, a soft beat, adding on layer after layer, then slowly stripping everything until he's almost where he started, before he builds it up again (a little differently this time — the bass groove adds a few notes, the keys play more chords) and the song finally ends in a familiar riff or just fades slowly and softly away instead. It proves to be a good recipe: the album is pleasant and soft but not boring, and the tracks are surprisingly brief: they don't continue on forever as often happens with looping. When Koushik is especially successful, like in the hauntingly melancholic "Ew," it's fantastic, and the song begs to be longer, and when he's less than spectacular (the lackluster "Back to the End," for example), it's nice that most of the songs on the album fall far short of the three-minute mark. Yes, by the end of the album his formula is well understood, but it produces such likable songs that it doesn't really matter. Koushik is one to keep an eye on, and it will be interesting to see what he will do with a full album. He holds great promise; he'll just have to learn how to put it all together.

STONES THROW DONE RIGHT...

Koushik Ghosh's voice is a soft, gentle whisper that is perfect for his fresh production... overall great album. Only fault: 28 minutes long, but just put the album on repeat and your all set. I also recommend the Madvillain Remixes by Koushik Ghosh.

Koushik brings the HEAT!

This is just a compaltion of ep's but nevertheless well worth 10$. "Out my window" is his 1st full length LP and it is also 5stars!!

Beautifully Satisfying

I hope its just not me but, i find Koushik's music able to soothe my soul and release me into a state of relaxation. Tracks such as Homage, One In a Day, and Ew, are superb blendings of smooth melodies and Koushiks trademark whisper of lyrics. Koushik's knack for creating strong Hip Hop beats shine through on tracks such as Ride Out and Ride It Out. Unfortunately, a major detractor from this great piece of work is the length of certain tracks and you're often left wishing the tracks could go on forever, and that may be part of the appeal for me.
