Iranian to the end…

June 25, 2019

I came across a reference to this release in an article I read today – it sounded interesting so I checked it out. It’s great when you randomly discover something special.

Saint Abdullah are a duo from Iran.  In these uncertain times, when we’re being majorly lied to on a daily basis about Iran and its culture, we need to remember that Iranians are people just like the rest of us. There is a lot of great music being made by Iranians within Iran and expatriates outside of Iran.

Ta Tash was released in June 2019 and it follows on from an earlier release, The Sounds of Evil Vol 1.   Ta Tash has two excellent tracks, coming in at about 23 minutes playing time. To me it is reminiscent of Muslimgauze but much less abrasive, more accessible – however, just as hypnotic.

Ta Tash translates as ‘To the End’ in English. It captures the essence of a sentiment during the brutal 8-year war between Iran-Iraq. To protect Iran’s borders, to defend the Shia faith, the Persian civilization, at all costs. It is also quite a greedy aspiration. Where defense and offense and blind faith muddy the prospect for rational thinking, strategy, and humanity. But at the same time, perhaps this is the kind of shit that’s helped Iran survive for 5000 years. Who knows?.”
Saint Abdullah, in conversation with Boomarm Nation (May 2018)

The album is available on a “Name Your Price” basis, the same as our releases. We believe music has value – spend a little cash and get this album for your collection.
