Nitin Sawhney's Philtre

Nitin Sawhney's new album entitled "Philtre" is all set to release on May 02, 2005. I just checked out the video of the song entitled "Koyal" from the album, and I think it is quite cool. The video has a feel similar to the Bollywood movies of the 1950's-1960's and is quite nice. They have also put up some audio samples of the songs from the album of which I especially liked "Deadman" and "Mausam". Check it out!

The video part of the song is an extract of Franz Osten/Himansu Rai's 1929 movie A Throw of Dice...perhaps one of the very few silent era Indian movies that survive in a watchable shape...

I haven't seen "A Throw of Dice" but I think the visuals and the music of "Koyal" certainly are fantabulous :)

I think this album is absolutely fantastic. My favourite track is Deadman. There is a fantastic & prominent Bollywood string arrangement on this track by Chandru of Bollywood Strings but sadly, the credits for this track don't reflect this.

Deadman has a very unique and interesting feel. I am not sure I have heard anything like that before.

I like Mausam too. And Journey. And Noches En Vela. The Search is nice too.

Gosh! I am just waiting for the album to be released in India. Indiatimes.com only has "All Mixed Up" as yet.
