Nikhil P. Yerawadekar & Low Mentality - Reel It In (3rd Generation Recordings)
Reel It In is the first vinyl release from songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Nikhil P. Yerawadekar and his eclectic group Low Mentality. This 7" single also marks his first outing with independent label, 3rd Generation Recordings. These eclectic, original vocal songs were self produced by Nikhil in Brooklyn, NY in 2014 (mixes by Jeremy Page and Jim Bertini). They are a reflection of the diversity of sounds that have formed Nikhil's perspective over the years as a member of groups such as Antibalas, The Sway Machinery, Bright Moments and Akoya Afrobeat. The A-side "Reel It In" is a pop tune that seamlessly blends Ghanaian, Malian and Jamaican flavors, while the B-side "Vultures" is a deep cut that will remind some of The Doors, and others of Sly and Robbie. These captivating melodies and propulsive beats come together to create a sound that is familiar and inviting, but utterly unique at the same time.
