This Too Will Pass (CD Dangerbird)

This Too Will Pass is Hirshikesh Hirway’s (pronounced rishie-kaysh) solo debut on Dangerbird Records, featuring Hrishkesh on guitar, cello, drums, and drum programming with a stellar line-up of contributing musicians on other instruments.

Born and raised in Peabody, Massachusetts to Indian parents, Hrishkesh began his musical career under the name The One AM Radio in the late ‘90s in New Haven, Connecticut, while attending Yale. As junior in college, he began performing solo with an acoustic guitar and a drum loop backing him and by 2000 he was already recording and editing his own live drums on his computer.

Later on he became good friends with another Yale student, violin planer, Jane Yakowitz, and released their first album, The Hum of the Electric Air, in July 2002. Soon after, the indie circles were praising the duo for their heartfelt songwriting and their creativity in blending electronic and organic instruments.

In the past couple of years, Hrishkesh has focused on a solo career to produce an album that is more reflective of his own personal history. The result is a beautiful collection of songs reminiscent of M83 and Sigur Ros. It is hard to explain in words what his music sounds and feels like. His compositions are a dreamy mix of vocals, string instruments, and ambient beats while his bittersweet tunes play with your head and your heart at the same time.

Hirshkesh knows how to work with his soulful, melancholic melodies and whispery vocals without making the album a depressive experience – something that not all singer/songwriters are capable of!

“Lest I Forget,” “Shivers,” and “In the Time We’ve Got” particularly stand out, but all in all This Too Will Pass is the kind of album that you will find yourself listening to over and over again.
