Track of the Week Mashrou' Leila


How times have changed…

I used to spend hours (possibly days) each week sifting through vinyl in Leeds, London or just about anywhere that had a record or charity shop hoping to coming across rarefied musical gems from far off lands.

Nowadays I barely need to leave the comfort of my Spotify app to find great music from all over the world. Maybe I'm getting old but I do miss the heady days of dusty record shops. That said I now find more music than I know what to do with and this band are brilliant.

Mashrou' Leila are a five piece alt. rock band from Lebanon and this is one of my favourite tracks, I hope you enjoy it:
