2 stars A strangely unsatisfying experience this. Multi-instrumentalist Okko Bekker obviously has a thing for Indian music, and here in puts classic psych-pop nuggets such as The Beatles seminal 'A Day In The Life' and Jimi Hendrix's 'Crosstown Traffic' through the sonic sitar blender, resulting in an anaemic set of renditions that add little - apart from a sprinkling of ethnic exotica - to proceedings. If it's raga-rock your after then there are plenty better albums out there, such as Clark Hutchinson's excellent 'A=Mh2' and Magic Carpet's self-titled debut, with 'Sitar & Electronics' actually little more than a novelty covers album. Makes you wonder what all the fuss is about really.
