Album Notes
Kamalata’s debut album Red Lips—sounds from the East Village of New York City—stamps the arrival of rock at a multicultural and multilingual plateau. The sonic soundscape of Red Lips stretches from American folk to classical Persian, punk rock and house. The songs tell of the experience of the generation born in the 1980s to war, consumerism and a seemingly meaningless world.

In songs like Agent Orange and Red Lips, the right to self-sovereignty, the class system, and the condemnation of imperialist wars are voiced, while in songs like Dirty, Big Boy Lullaby, Sabalon and Crack Fatso Retardo themes of modern romance, addiction and universal alienation swirl along elements of folk. The two dance tracks on the album, a nod at Kamalata’s years in the underground dance scene are, Das Apple, a groovy song that lyrically plays with the idea of social limits and Here and Now, an upbeat number that is a celebration of the moment.

Kamalata is the artist name of Iranian American musician Neda Zahraie. The album is produced, recorded and mixed by Frederik Rubens. Jesse Murphy and Aaron Johnston from the Grammy nominee group Brazilian Girls are respectively heard on bass and drums while Gabriel Gordon (Meshell N’dgeocello, Laurie Anderson, T Bone Burnett, Natalie Merchant, ...) can be heard on the electric guitar. The album was recorded in Brooklyn’s Studio G, produced and mixed by Frederik Rubens and mastered by Dave McNair for digital and vinyl. All songs are available in high res 24 bit/96 K WAVs and acetate (12").
