Formed in New Delhi round 2010 by way of the crooner Suryakant Sawhney, Peter Cat Recording Co. Is a collection that’s mutated over time, losing contributors and accruing greater, always evolving musically with each album: from gypsy jazz to psychedelic cabaret; ballroom waltzes to epic area disco; bossa supernova to uneasy listening.
While Suryakant’s crooning is spookily harking back to a hipster 50’s Sinatra, it turned into greater his purpose to ape mythical Bollywood playback singers like Kishore Kumar, Mohammed Rafi and especially Hemant Kumar. There are diverse American influences inside the blend too, inclusive of Sam Cooke, Etta James and even Tom Waits, and time spent in San Francisco analyzing film might also have contributed to the cinematic melange. Thrown together it becomes something particular that equates less to a listening enjoy and more to an out-of-frame experience.
