near the sound
of an open
aspect waiting
for a blackbird,
and now,
while the north
wind appears
with a delicate

AMAZING!!!  Finally, new Iranian musicians that's worth a damn.  This was really good.  I'm downloading this.  Thanks for the post.  I love that they listed Bauhaus as an influence.  I'm fully supporting these guys.  They're hip, relevant and groovy.   I can't believe this is coming out of Tehran!!  Yay!!
