“In ballad and verse, Kali tunes in a delightful, whimsical world of fantasy and slips into the transparent land of wide-eyed forest children, including: Leprechauns, dwarfs, witches, warlocks, gremlins, gnomes and trolls.”
Fritz: It’s waayy to early in the morning to be listening to this. It sounds like someone in an opium den in India in the 1960s was trying to write a children’s book.
Sarah: So “Kali Bahlu takes the forest children on a journey of Cosmic Remembrance.” Sounds to me more like something I’d punish my children with.
Josh: But it’s almost…funny. Like, I want to see how long I can listen to this before cracking up or hurling the record across the room. This woman’s totally nuts.
Annie: I tuned out after “Jesus’ sign is the skull and crossbones.”
Sarah: So if that’s his sign, does that mean she hates Jesus?
Josh: Could just mean she wishes Jesus was a pirate. I wonder why “Moses’ color is carrot orange” and “Confuscious’ color is sky light blue.”
Sarah: It’s curious that, for an Indian, spiritual-themed album, Kali uses a lot of American-sounding diction. I can’t imagine Leprechauns in India.
Fritz: Or giant robots – that sounds more Japanese. On another note, I do like the sitars and tambourines though. They strangely accent Kali’s excited, storytelling/singing tone, and really make this trippy.
Josh: Yeah, I think this will be a good record for our collection. Diversity’s a good thing. Even if it’s only to scare away people who are thinking about working for us.
