Not content with having just released a Kickstarter-funded Kate Bush cover album on Crash Symbols/AMdiscs (while you’re at it, also check out his cover of The Cranberries’ “Dreams”), Aria Jalali of SF “shitgaze” project Railcars has decided to get his pseudo-raga on as Gypsy Treasures. Look for Buried Goods on cassette, out now on Not Not Fun. It’s an appropriately titled release, given that the underlying tracks were inadvertently rediscovered while on a Railcars tour in the form of old loops on Jalali’s Boss pedal.
Check out the six-and-a-half-minute video for “Four Horsemen” above. It’s a good example of Gypsy Treasure’s psychedelic stupor. Think Sun City Bishops with Gocher presiding over stereotypes of Middle Eastern/Eastern European origin. Okay, now stop thinking that and just listen.
