Artist Mention Monday on Tuesday only for SID SRIRAM!
Yea its not monday, big woop wanna fight about it ? (new yorker accent) Well ITs ARTIST MENTION MONDAY’s on TUESDAY! and that already makes it special on its own. Before we get to it, I’d like to apologize to my viewers for my short period absence, (NO I didnt abandon you) I was working on other projects that unfortunately required my full attention and was unable to write for a bit, but WERE BACK! and were back with a PUNCH because todays artist is Innovation at its finest. You remember the 90’s? YEAH aside from Britney Spear and back street boys they were BADASS times, remember when you first heard the voice of Brandon Boyd from Incubus in hmm lets say Stellar and you thought holy shit, did my ears just get laid? Well thats the same reaction I got from listening to Sid Sriram lets start by saying that his tonality and ambience utters a surreal and serene feeling that compels one to engage their senses to achieve musical nirvana, believe me its possible. Oh and speaking of nirvana.. Mr. Sid Sriram did a cover of Smells like teen spirit, I know..I know exactly what your thinking “Aw shit everyone covers that song its so overplayed, boring unoriginal” well believe me that you have never heard a version of Smells like Teen Spirit like this one. Dont believe me? check it out
Still think its overplayed? well yes it is BUT wasnt it fucking amazing! there are only two kinds of cover artists, theres A)Cover artists and B) Interpreters, and frankly…he is neither because he surpasses both definitions. Put simply he’s Sid Sriram he took song interpretation to a whole new level with this one, I mean if the song title wasnt up on youtube you’d have to wait till the Chorus hit to know that your listening to Nirvana.
Known today as one the best uprising artists of 2012 his live performance known as “a conscious mind” is live performances with original and cover tracks. Receiving a positive reception from viewers around the US on Youtube, Sids future in the Arts looks promising all is well with integrity and originality but most importantly innovation. Lets just hope that he doesnt meet Bruno Pluto or Justin Gopher some shit and turns him into the commercialized shit music no different from Heinz Ketchup (STAY TRUE SID!). With songs like Entropy, talk to me , fugitive thoughts and Smells like teen spirit “A conscious mind” can truly sway you to make the conscious decision to download his albums or any future work he may put out in the near future.
