Koushik Be With
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: Stones Throw
Koushik hasn‘t exactly stormed the scene as much as he‘s waded in, first with his brilliant 7" for Kieran "Four Tet" Hebden‘s Text imprint two years ago (some of which is included here) and then as guest vocalist for Manitoba‘s Up In Flames record. And that chronology-from DJ Premier-gone-postrock to hazy, Sound Library-sampled pop-says something about the Canadian‘s trajectory. While it‘s true that many have tried and will try to do what Koushik has done-please don‘t call it psych-hop, thanks-few will succeed. Whether it‘s slept on or not, Be With is a masterpiece of subtlety and restraint.
