so ridiculously good. if yr a fan of that ahmad zahir i posted, or have copped either rangarang, zendooni, or khana khana, then you know what yr in store for. my only real complaint are the liner notes. who decided angela sawyer would be a good fit? why not reach out to some of the stars to get their story? or have them write a history of iranian pop's golden age. i would love to hear what they have to say about any of this. anyway, grumbles aside, this is some fucking fyre folks. grab it while you can!
ps i fixed the link for that brasil/mali record i posted a few days ago. sorry about that amigos!
if you haven't copped this cat's new album, then yr life is sorely incomplete amigos.
ps does anyone have suggestions on converting cassettes into mp3s? are there any tape converters that y'all suggest? or is it some arcane method? i recently bought ciani's velocity of love & seven waves on cassette, & i would like to reup those files in gorgeous 320 for y'all, because really truly the sound is so vastly different. i also have more amazing gamelan cassettes & thai crooners & mariachi burners & some other aces hidden up my sleeve that i would like to convert. hit me up!

two cats from brazil go to record an epic psych masterpiece in mali with toumani diabaté & his son just fucking melting faces with electric koras run through wah pedals. just get this, you won't be disappointed.
ps reupped the yma. & will be going on a three day trip with no technology starting tomorrow, so catch you on the flip amigos.

what can i say about this guy? the neil diamond of the desert? arguably one of afghanistan's biggest pop stars? a voice that will melt yr icy western heart? ahmad zahir has been playing around these parts for the last two months now & i just had to share this gem with y'all. if you guise enjoy this, then i have some more of his stuff tucked away up my sleeve that i might share. also, will be reupping the yma sumac shortly since people still visit that post the most out of any others. any other requests? just let me know folks.

i love how weird & demented this record is. joe meek is like phil spector of 2010 back in 1959 (both are amazingly gifted producers with a great ear for sonics, both were certifiably nuts, & both men killed a woman, only joe meek shot himself after... phil i'm looking at you buddy!). chipmunk choruses on top of off kilter shuffling dreamy skiffle recorded in the cosmos. just get it.
ps will be breaking my no reup policy for a few oldies but goodies. i know that the link for reyog ponorogo has been down for quite some time, so i'll get that back up.
