COLONIAL VIGOR

Port outward, starboard home

ZIA ATABI “Heleyos” (ca. 1970s)

I let this blog die for a while but if Gabe Said, “We’re Into Movements” can come back after almost 3 years dormant, I guess I can pick again after only a couple months.

Anyway, Finders Keepers has really been putting out some incredible comps lately. The Sound of Wonder, amazing Pakistani film music from the ’60s-’70s, was one of my favorite releases of 2009…

BUT. I think they’ve topped that with Pomegranates, “Persian Pop, Funk, Folk, and Psych of the 60s & 70s”. Practically every track is mind-blowing, but the opener, “Heleyos” is my favorite– the scatting, the thick bass, the crazy horns, the chanted vocals. Can’t stop listening to this.
