Add to the mix, Crispian's wonderful harmonies and you just can't resist. It could have come off of the soundtrack of "Jesus Christ Superstar". It's Pink Floyd meets Enya, and it's excruciatingly lovely. I fall asleep with the haunting melody going through my mind. If you're a fan of the best music of the late 60's buy this CD. You won't regret it. A must buy! So its not as good as their Big K album, but most of their tracks on this one do have that same signature Kula Shaker sound.
Great album. Go buy it if you do not already have it!!! Great album. Great sound in vinyl. And their second album "Peasants Pigs and Astronauts is a seriously underrated little Britpop album, full of rich atmosphere, brilliant instrumentation, and a thick opulant blanket of Indian musical influence. Where else in modern music do you hear Sanskrit chants with blazing riffs?
It opens on a spacey, shimmering note, before seguing into the funky, catchy, wild "Great Hosannah. It came as a shock to me to learn that Kula Shaker named after an Indian holy man, Kulasekhara only formed in the mid s. Listening to their sound and their socially critical lyrics, I thought they were a product of the sixties or seventies, whose music had stayed timeless. But as I listened to it more, it became clear that this music was a more modern type.
It has deliciously barbed, jagged riffs paired with cycling, ethereal guitars, even Radhe Radhe - Kula Shaker - Peasants mellow love songs like "Shower Your Love. It's all woven tightly together, into pop songs with a dozen layers of sound.
But they also do something a bit more recent, slipping in delicate samples of church bells, singing birds, and a weird little voice. The newly reformed Kula Shaker mishmash retro instrumentation, Indian funk and blazing rock'n'roll together in their second album, an underrated little Britpop gem. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Listening again to this following the Kula 20th anniversary tour, I think this album possesses all the drive, power, inventiveness and melody from the "K" album but adds a level of maturity.
The songs are still vintage early Kula but have a bit extra depth and aren't quite as raw sounding. I'll leave it at that. Crispin and his mate are accomplished musicians - great songs and excellently produced. Buy it! One person found this helpful. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. An underrated album this, probably due to the press having turned the tables on Kula Shaker, by the time of its original release.
The band threw the kitchen sink at this album, and these songs, the scope of what they aimed to achieve was huge, on the back of the huge success and power of 'K'. But these songs were perhaps more sophisticated, and eclectic. Lush strings, brass, sitar, tablas add to the band's own huge sound, exotic Asian influences abound, adding to their mystique. Perhaps not for anyone who doesn't usually do sixties influenced psychedelic music spotting. This is a brilliant album, which, like most great albums takes a few listens to fully appreciate.
The critics never liked KS, possibly something to do with Crispian's family being famous and therefore assumed he was a rich kid just "playing at it", or more likely the critics just didn't get KS - it's all too intelligent for them to bother listening to properly.
Only just discovered they reformed last year and have ordered up the album. Kula Shaker were oft derided in the trendy music press for exploring so called naff eastern mysticism. I can't recall them slating Oasis for experimenting with hippy terminology on Who Feels Love from the following year. This is wonderful music full of meditation on the meaning of life and modern day existentialism.
There is a strong Radhe Radhe - Kula Shaker - Peasants Krishna theme throughout with some exotic sounding eastern instrumentation mixed with choppy guitars, swirling hammond organ and wonderful vocals from Crispin Mills, Pigs & Astronauts (CD. A highly underrated album with some wonderful photos of an astronaut sat on a log reading a paper in an autumnal wood on the sleeve notes.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I heard kula shaker when Mark and lard used to play the original version of Tatva on their 10 til midnight show. I got to see them in a tiny club in reading a few months later and was blown away.
