Newmer, another name for the partnershipof rapper Frea King aka MusicSnake and Gogol Bordello member Pasha Newmer, are set to shake up the music industry by creating an entirely new musical genre. Folk-hop is a blend of the two musical styles that MusicSnake and Pasha Newmer are most familiar with: hip hop and folk, respectively. To commemorate the beginning of their joint effort and the birth of the genre they have developed, the pair has released their debut single, Elusive Light. The song was released on Apple Music and other music streaming platforms on August 31st and quickly earned a spot on the platform’s Global Hip-hop Charts. 

Elusive Light has a groundbreaking sound, thanks to the way the duo have chosen to incorporate Newmer’s dreamy accordion into a song influenced by the beats of Lil Nas X’s Spring 2019 chart topping remix, Old Town Road. The lush female vocals throughout each chorus give the song an additional ethereal quality that fits perfectly with its storyline about unattainable dreams. 

Belarus born musicians who met in New York recorded Elusive Light in San Mateo, at Studio Circle Recordings. “Shape of You” singer songwriter Ed Sheeran has recorded there, as have Dr. Dre’s son, Curtis, and U2. Pasha Newmer is well known for being a member of the New York based gypsy-punk band Gogol Bordello.

Good enough but not best enough – audience response to the movie ‘Once upon a time in Hollywood’

When such a distinguished writer-director Quentin Tarantino takes a movie after 2015, it is usual for the audience to have high expectations especially when the film has an amazing cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis and Dakota Fanning, alongside the director’s repertory players such as Michael Madsen and Zoë Bell. The movie is already on screens in USA from 26th July and has recently released in some parts of Asia and Europe on august 14th.

The film plot is based on a true story that goes back to the late 1960’s and early 70’s bringing back the bygone memories of Hollywood. The film highlights multiple storylines taking place in Los Angeles and is applauded as a tribute to the forgotten era. The two lead characters of the movie are Rick Dalton former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth acted by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt respectively. Sharon Tate acted by Margot Robbie has a key role in the story.

Though the movie attracted an overall good rating (>80% on several platforms), there seems to be a sense of dissatisfaction among several audience, which generally don’t happen with the Tarantino’s movies. Higher expectation might also be a cause as pegging this movie as an early 2020 Oscar favorite before the release shows the level of audience anticipation.
