*** #1 Suryakant Swahney/PCRC*** Peter Cat Recording Co. are five dudes from New Delhi who look like an indie band but, somehow, sound like Dean Martin. They are, probably, the best band you’ve never heard.They’ve experimented with jazz, ambient, electro – you name it – they signed to the Parisian label Panache Records, who compiled their tracks in the killer odd-n’sods album Portrait of a Time.The album takes its name from a song on the album. It’s a stunning piece that opens up as a bouncy jazz number with a jubilant, swooning, deeply romantic chorus (“I was someone – someone who would disagree / Now I’m here to ride this Lamborghini to you”), before it slides into a low-key electronic bridge, all crunching claps and underwater guitar – and then that chorus returns for a glorious victory lap.‘Love Demons’, a retro jazz manouche track that, somewhat bizarrely, morphs into a thumping, 21st Century dance banger. When asked the about the motives of the songs, the band frontman Suryakant Sawhney says- “I just want people to have something really important happen. I don’t really care if they enjoy it. I want them to feel all the emotions. I don’t necessarily want them to come to the show and have a great fucking time drinking. I want them to change from, like, having a great dancing to be, like, ‘Oh, wow, this song is depressing me’. Right afterwards, you know? I like that.” The album also offers slow tracks like "I'm home" and "Flies" which can you can listen to when you are sitting in a dark room relaxing after the day's work or when you're simply tripping balls cause you're too damn high(take a look at their videos on Panache's YT channel and trip even harder), totally up to you. *** Swipe right to get a feel of "I'm home"
