Carl Gari & Abdullah Miniawy - Ya Wayni
Ben Cummings

Buy: Curious instalment of dystopian techno and middle eastern modes from Jonas Friedlich a.k.a. Carl Gari and Egypt's Abdullah Miniawy for The Trilogy Tapes. Slow, dread-filled and impassioned, the four tracks on TTT039 summon a looming spectre of post-revolutionary tristesse with gloomy sonics and indecipherable yet understandably wounded songwriting, ripe for comparison with Muslimgauze meeting Omar Souleyman.
