Afghani Rock

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.


“I Wanna Meet Dave Grohl” – Wavves

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!
