Malayalam film music is the most promising film music scene in India at the moment. It has been for the past several years now, with indie and off-beat movies backed by brilliant soundtracks as much as mainstream films.
June proved very exciting for Indian film music in general, with some of the best albums of the year yet showing up. There were a few remarkable releases in Tamil, in the spectrum ranging from indie to mainstream music.
New albums from Courtney Barnett, Parquet Courts, James Bay, Sutej Singh and Manan and new singles from Anderson .Paak, Nine Inch Nails, Disclosure, Chromatics and Death Grips - here is this week's roundup.
