    We love this!

    An amazing triple-disc collection from the godfather of seventies Iranian psychedelic rock, Kourosh Yaghmaei on Now Again! Merging the influence of Western garage rock bands such as The Kinks and The Doors, psychedelia and Iranian folkloric music. A well-loved artist within the Iranian diaspora, Kourosh's pre-revolution music was believed to be destroyed after Islamic fundamentalists took over Iran. Thankfully Kourosh saved them!

    Funky basslines, rocky reverby guitar, traditional pulsating percussion, wigged-out psychedelia and melancholy progressive rock.
