Alien Chatter has returned with their sophomore release entitled "Invasion". The new CD finds the duo of percussionist Satnam Ramgotra and keyboardist Rodney Lee delving deeper into their unique spin on Indo-Jazz that they now call Indo-Jazztronica.
Furthermore, on this recording a few earthlings have joined Alien Chatter on their cosmic explorations. Perhaps one of the most recorded guitarists of our time, Michael Landau, is featured on a few tracks along with Shri Aloke DasGupta on sitar, and Jimmy Mahlis on oud. Bassists Shawn Davis, Rico Belled, and Stan Sargeant provide the low end.
Alien Chatter is the unexpected duo of Indian percussionist Satnam Ramgotra and keyboardist Rodney Lee. Their sonic emissions are a sophisticated blend of atmospheric electronic textures and exotic rhythms. It's an eclectic mix of Indian tabla drums, acoustic jazz piano, synths, beatbox, spoken word in a primordial soup of electronics. The resulting experience is what happens when Massive Attack meets Tabla Beat Science and chill with the martians.
Alien Chatter has recently signed to Six Degrees Records under their emerging artists series.
