We’re pleased to announce that we’ve approved the samples of hardbound, full color book – and, of course, 2 CD set – of the complete Pre-Revolution recordings of Iranian psych-rock godfather Kourosh Yaghmaei. We’ll be posting more information about this anthology – and the two vinyl formats in which we will present Kourosh’s music – in the coming weeks. In the meantime, read more at the links below and, if you haven’t already purchased our Forge Your Own Chains anthology of global psychedelia, download Kourosh’s entry on that album – the masterful “Hajme Khali” – below.

Every once in a while, we read a review that – well – makes us want to give ourselves a little pat on the back. We love The Wire – one of the last, great music mags left – and when we read this one we had to smile. In a psychedelic sort of way.
Read the review here.
Forge Your Own Chains is out now, as if you didn’t know that.
As if you needed someone in a position of authority to tell you so: Forge Your Own Chains is one mind-melter of a comp. Check a review in this week’s Rolling Stone.
“… haywire brains are what make this freak-rock compilation so awesome!” We agree.
