IRAN...I ran so far away:
Early release from prolific Muslimgauze. Whatever the personal opinions may be regarding Bryn Jones' politics, it's hard to deny the singular vision with which he crafted his art for many years until his death in 1999.
One important thing to remember when listening to Muslimgauze, he hated the use of sampling and computers used in music. Therefore all of this was recorded using only analog equipment and the instruments were played live by Jones, himself.
These are dreamy, percussion-heavy, reverb drenched, haunting Middle Eastern soundscapes...via Manchester, England.
