Music: Iran

By Rich Shivener · September 15th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

Disambiguation is fun. Type “Iran” into Wikipedia and a road to reliable and unreliable sources opens. But nowhere does it say that a band took up the name in 2000. No link. No pop culture reference.

The Brooklyn Noise Pop band needs attention for several — and not because it deserves a beefy Wikipedia entry.

Dissolver, the band's fourth album, maintains an air of Noise Pop and nods to John Lennon, Pink Floyd and, of course, TVOTR.

David Sitek of TVOTR produced this one, texturizing machinations with waves of beautiful chaos. Skip to “Baby, Let's Get High One Last Time Together,” a bluesy jam session that resolves into the following track, “Digital Clocks and Phones,” the ultimate cacophony on Dissolver.

See them play with the Fruit Bats and Kevin Barker. Get Sound Advice and show details here.
