Sir Hiss – Tehran Gunshots

This year, Sir Hiss first greeted us with a dark, hazy, warped, and weeping vinyl, “Rolling” (released by White Peach Records), which was followed by an EP “Frequent Flyer”. I thought that was it for him this year, but NO!! Like any other hardworking Bristolian, he won’t stop. I first heard the A-side, Tehran Gunsgots, of his new 12″ on Kahn’s mix for BBC 1Xtra over a year ago. The interesting part of the song was the sample he used, “Anilar Bana Yeter” from Gulden Karabocek (a Turkish singer active in the 70s to 00s). If you are following his releases, sample usage is not news (he is using samples from all over the world, east to west). But I was not expecting a song from Gulden Karabocek. Anyways, now we have Tehran Gunshots on wax accompanied by Mr. Sandman on the B-side, released by his own label No More Mailouts. Already sold out at their Bandcamp store. Don’t sleep on this!
