In my ever-so-humble opinion, one of the most potent effects of NH7 has always been facilitating discovery of new acts. Among others, I have found, at previous renditions, Parekh and Singh, Thaikkudam Bridge, Imphal Talkies, and Ankur & the Ghalat Family.
On Day 2, they did not disappoint. A curated lineup brought to a delighted city John Mayer-loving blues oozer Jay Abo, electro R&B loungers I M U R and garage-rock grim reapers West Thebarton. Each offering a distinctive aesthetic, they introduced to approving and applauding listeners new additions to their daily playlists.
Day 2 was spent with exploring newness, and peppering them with familiar pleasures. For the most part, you were inspired to dawdle on the grass and let mild, unintended satisfaction creep up.
