Out My Window

by Koushik

This is a hauntingly beautiful album. Koushik weaves together some lush, yet minimal beats, layered with samples samples of spaced-out women singing.

It's total instrumental hippie hip-hop, but that's a really really good thing. I think I recognize some Free Design samples, and a lot of other samples come right to the front of my brain, but I can't really identify them. Instead, I find that this album washes over me, and the tracks seem to blur.

This is a fantastic background album. I'd love to see Koushik lay down some beats for some rappers to rhyme over - his remixes aren't enough for me.
