Nikhil P. Yerawadekar & Low Mentality - Everything Lasts Forever (3rd Generation Recordings)
Everything Lasts Forever is the debut album by Low Mentality, led by multi-instrumentalist and producer Nikhil P. Yerawadekar. Rather than looking to his trendier Brooklyn peers for direction, Yerawadekar’s songs reflect both the sounds of his upbringing in the city’s most diverse borough of Queens, and those of his musical career working in groups such as the afrobeat juggernaut Antibalas and with artists like the Ethiopian keyboard legend Hailu Mergia. The result is a collection of unique and personal songs all carrying a deeply groovy sound, equally effective in headphones or on the dance floor. The music is undeniably fresh, new and hip, but with its diversity of flavors, it also has entry points for almost any listener, regardless of where they’re coming from.
