Haale & Friends
Last night I revisited Haale at an intimate show in the Tralf. Haale combines Persian music with Sufi poetry and Jimi Hendrix-inspired guitar rock to make a distinctive but very fluid sound. It'd be difficult to capture the mood of her performance in text or video--especially her explanations of each song's origins--so I won't try. Have you ever heard extended live versions of Led Zeppelin's No Quarter? That's a starting point.
For the heck of it, here's my video of her at Nietzsche's last year:
Check out Haale's official site for a stream of her new album No Ceiling.
