India Sixties and Beyond Music.

Have you heard of Messiah, The Savages or Spartans? Well they are all Indian bands from the past. India Sixties and Beyond Music is a Facebook page that chronicles independent alternative musicians right from their early days in the sixties through photographs. It consists of rare photos of unknown-to-the-current-generation musicians. It also has a brilliant gallery of album art too. Check it for its pure awesomeness value.

TIME Magazine’s famous “ALL-TIME” 100 Movies was published in early 2005 and got a whopping 7.8 million hits in the first week alone. Satyajit Ray’s Apu Trilogy (Pather Panchali, Aparajito and Apur Sansar) have also been featured on that list. This is proof enough that Ray was one of the pioneers who put Indian cinema out into the world.

Listen

With music bordering on the classic genre, Solder is another one of Bangalore’s non-metal bands. Their music is easy to listen to and the lyrics are pretty catchy. They define their genre as Feel-Good Rock, but we’d like to call it another addition to the growing alternative genre – Bangalore Rock. Listen to their debut song ‘Irish Coffee’ here. We are sure you will like it.

Watch
