Eid Mubarak, Pataristaniyo!
Behhh behhh beh. Gosht Mubarak to you too! Agar aap apnay gosht co(r)may se bahir aa gaye hain to buhat buhat mubarak ho. Well done! Moving on to our zaroori ailaan:
The most anticipated album of the decade, Noori’s ‘Begum Gul Bakowli Sarfarosh‘ (BGBS) will be released on 9th October, exclusively on Patari (hamari aur koi branch nahi). We’ll be doing podcasts about the album and releasing snippets this week. Tune in to listen to hamaray azeem Ustaad Ahmer Naqvi & Ustaad Khalid Bajwa. Ganoon ka intro karwayen ge aur kuch shurliyan chorein ge.

Woh kaun thi, tamaam shehr jis ke music mein gum tha?
Wo Patari ki app thi aur wo App Store/ Play Store main rehti hai. Ye lo uss k number: iOS and Android! 😉
All Time Top 10 Tracks
Jitna pyaar aap apnay bakron se karte hain (thay) utna he inn tracks se bhi muhabbat ki:
Jawani ki maut pe jirga abhi tak baitha hai, magar party mahaul zinda hai. This soundtrack pays due homage to its spiritual ancestors from Bollywood. Dance-able beats, catchy choruses, some tongue-in-cheek humor, annoyingly good hooks, and a bright vocal collage. This soundtrack has it all.
Gul Panara ki khoobsurat, aur hamara matlab hai intehai khoobsurat awaz se le ke Ali Sethi ki dard bhari awaz tak, Ali Zafar ke Rockstar aur Nabeel Shaukat ke Bewajah – The absolute best CS8 has to offer this season!
Party sharty sab jaiz hai magar kabhi kabhar kaam bhi karna parta hai. Unn lamhon se ab mat dariye. Aap ke liye curators ki taazi peshkush: nayi Focus playlist. Smooth ambient se ibtida, electronic ka aik mast detour aur phir waapis apne wattan ki mitti par. This will freshen up any work day, warna paisay waapis.
Afshan Fawad’s vocal is sweet, Rahat’s interlude triumphant. A mellow harmonium and nice supporting beat lift it all up. Classic filmi moseeqi.
Hefty Hyderabad Rock. This live recording revels in rhythm; the entire band seems to come together as one giant, mystical pulse. Definitely a band to continue following in the future.
Karakoram (Live) – The D/A Method.
Hum aisa guitar kyun nahin baja saktay? If you’re going to suck it up for something, this song is worth it. You can hear a bit of Pink Floyd behind the meaty vocal. Pretty damn good prog-rock.
One of our teammates had a very public fan-girl moment after this alt-rock album released. It was embarrassing, but he was right. The only thing that could have made this album more amazeballs was if it was recorded by actual rabbits. It is versatile, polished, iconic. Nobody’s really heard about it (which is just a whole other line of criticism about the modern world, don’t get us started), so you can still be hipster by becoming a fan girl. Because you should.
Agar aap kaam aur party mein itna kho gaye thay ke hamari koi bakwaas aap tak nahin pohanchi, fikar not jigz! All the latest and greatest ready to go.
A classic TV serial soundtrack to the core. Lost love, tablas, yearning, multi-tracked vocals, even a flute. Fits right into your lazy afternoon.
Until the next Haftanama – dhayr sara pyaar,
