My dude Youssef Abouzeid is one half of ultra-cool Egyptian Cold Wave outfit Shlomo Casio whom I’m a huge fan of and in addition he fronts this Transnational Shoegaze band.

This is their new EP and it takes in all the angst, introspection and Dream Pop of Shoegaze and shrouds it in Middle Eastern existentialism. Egypt never sounded so bleak and depressed but beautiful!
