Koushik "Out My Window" (2008)
Out My Window is a gentle blend of 60s sunshine pop, hazy millennial stoner pop infused by a hip hop sensibility. The hip hop isn't the street wise gansta stuff, but the heady underground vibe favored by several West Coast musicians in the late 90s & early part of the 21st century. It's probably not surprising that Koushik hasn't made a bigger splash in music circles, although it predates much of the Pitchfork championed indie sounds that come a few years later. Somewhat ironically, Koushik is actually much better than those later acts.
