TOY & Natasha Khan – “The Bride” (Amir Rassaei Cover)
Next month, the label Speedy Wunderground will release a new compilation of old Iranian freakout music called Zendooni: Funk, Psychedelia and Pop from the Iranian Pre-Revolution Generation. And on the same day, the label will also release a new 7″ single: A cover of “The Bride,” an Amir Rassaei song from that compilation, done by Natasha Khan, better known as Bat For Lashes, and the band TOY. Label owner Dan Carey produced the track, and they recorded it in five hours. It’s an absolutely badass psychedelic rave-up, and you can stream it below.
The Zendooni comp is out 7/1 on Speedy Wunderground, and so is the 7″ single of “The Bride.” The single is limited to 250 copies, and its B-side is a dub version called “Here Comes Dub Bride.”
