Kabul Dreams is the first rock band from Afghanistan that was formed after the fall of Taliban in 2008. I think they sound pretty good for a band originated from a conflict area. Also, the language the song is in is Dari, which is a dialect of Persian.
My whole suite hated me for blasting Wavves’ Post Acid regularly last year in my room…
And despite the fear of further social rejection in my entry this year, I couldn’t help but love their newest track “I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl” when it came out recently:
Apparently they wrote it for some MTV show, which didn’t look that good… I know the signing is a bit nasal, and the distortion is thick… but that’s half the fun, right? If you didn’t know them already, these guys know where their niche is (surf/noise rock?), write great songs, and make me want to move to Southern California even more than I already kind of want to (see below). Looking forward to the upcoming EP!
