Recorded with rage during the winter of 2011/12. “Voice of a Burnt Generation”, sung by Hani, recorded lo–fi in the Eissenhutenstadt refugee camp, Germany.

The Wire (UK): Sohrab is the soubriquet used by an expatriate Iranian electronic musician, who is now based in Berlin. This single is his second record and is explicitly about the situation in Iran and the dislocation that comes from having to leave your home. Mixing oud, voice, percussion, the sound of water and presumably heisted traditional material, the title track is especially mesmerizing. [Byron Coley]
