about

"..Like snake charmers, Basheer & The Pied Pipers hypnotize the senses into a trance, after which the rest of the album burrows itself into the mind with the slithering agility of a snake finding its way back into the pit it calls home. Sparingly embellished with vocals, the album brings together cross genres influences from electronica and alternative indie rock to present a smorgasbord of such an experimental nature that you might be pushed into believing that a similar sound may have been unheard in the past."

- Border Movement

"... Because this debut album sounds like the work of seasoned composers, adept at combining idiosyncratic sounds and disparate influences. Basheer prompts comparison to a plethora of exceptional musicians in both style and skill. Nevertheless, the sound of Basheer is inimitable."

- Dawn

Full-length album by Basheer & The Pied Pipers. Recorded, mixed, mastered in Karachi, Pakistan.

Track Name: Yes
Time is passing us by
This parasite
It's chasing through
These frantic nights

We lose our sight
Track Name: Once Again
We rest our heads in shade, the sun shines down
So pure so true so young, we are reborn
I'll know you once again

Mount your sails, the wind is here
We're on our way, we're on our way
Brace yourselves, hold steadfast, we're on our way

We believe once again.
Track Name: Circling Nowhere
You were handed this mess, child
You were born waging wars
Don't look back now
This may be worth fighting for

You dream in colors you choose to
In your masterpiece

To be selfless
in the most worthless way

We are just mere electrons, only resting here
we're going nowhere, nowhere
Track Name: Seems to Me
Seems to me. Maybe.
I've gone crazy. I'm seeing hazy.
Track Name: Mallet
You may choose to be free
These chains may be convenient
These wings are just for show
Track Name: You Know I Know I Know
You know I know I know

I've got places I need to be and
I've got things that I need to see and
I've got a lot that's on my plate and
I know you've got a lot on your mind

I hope you can find it in your heart to be as indifferent about me as I am to you
