Those of you who remember this post will remember me mentioning my friend A.p. (Taimur Mazhar)’s happy-ness/melodic melancholy-causing music created with a friend under the name of 6LA8. Well to everyone’s surprise and uttermost delight (not least the band members’) 6LA8 was reviewed online yesterday by none other than MTV DESI!
So as you can imagine, I am very very very excited 😀 Not only was the guy really positive about the music, distinguishing it from the “countless bands that emulate the mundane standards of mainstream western music“, but he also appreciates their “mild sense of self-deprecating humor” that is apparent in the titles. Finally he commends them as “the first contemporary sounds of dronology from Pakistan that have reached my headphones” before linking the whole world of MTV site visitors to a.p.’s blog, youtube videos and mediafire link 😀
Strikeout the excited 😀 That word doesn’t even BEGIN to describe how tumultuous this random review out of nowhere felt like. I sat staring at the screen for a full minute before it could sink in. And even then we tried tracing a distant connection thinking it might be someone we knew writing it. Nothing doing. This was an honest review out of nowhere by someone fan enough to mention 6LA8 with obvious cause except that he liked the wonderful music 😀
So yeah. Happy-ness ^_^
Anyway, before the tumult of the MTV review came to the forefront yours truly also wrote a summary of the first disk of 6LA8’s album and that can be found here, on the 6LA8 blog:
Not as exciting, but just as genuinely written 😀
Anyway. See you soon!
