Habibi discography A cursory listen to Brooklyn indie act Habibi's self-titled debut album would initially seem to suggest a straightforward punk approach to the classic girl group template. Front-loaded with sweetly catchy upbeat pop tracks like "I Got the Moves" and "Detroit Baby," Habibi's indie shimmy rhythms and reverb-heavy harmonies find the middle ground between the Shangri-Las and the Undertones in the same way the Vivian Girls did on their earliest work. The guitar lines are direct and no-frills, drummer Karen Isabel manages to play in a way that is equally powerful and understated, and the vocals are distant and eerie, whether delivered in a frantic rush solely by lead singer Rahill Jamalifard, as on spiky garage tracks like "Persepolis," or in a dreamy cloud of harmony by multiple bandmembers. Getting past the first few easily digestible girl group pop hits, it becomes clear that the true strength of Habibi lies in just how strange and haunted the songs can get. There's a spooky desperation in the slinky after-hours club narrative of "Let Me In" and a simmering anxiety lurking beneath what first appears to be a carefree tale of summer seduction on "Siin." Much like the Vaselines, Beat Happening, and Girls at Our Best!, Habibi tap into the very specific energy of a young band putting together its earliest songs, free from the self-consciousness and rules that can creep in and dull groups down once they become more established. Instead, the 11 songs that make up this perfectly brief album feel fresh and spirited even in their moments of occasional awkwardness or disjointedness. Far from naive but also completely lacking any of the jaded calculation of many of their peers, Habibi's debut offers up a set of songs that swim in strangeness, beauty, and discovery and are every bit as infectious as they are refreshing. ~ Fred Thomas Personnel: Caroline Partamian, Lenaya Lynch (vocals, guitar); Erin Campbell (vocals, shaker); Rahill Jamalifard (vocals, tambourine); Karen Isabel (drums). Recording information: Death By Audio (2012-2013).

Habibi CD discography The late Ali Hassan Kuban was Nubia's greatest musical treasure, a man who helped make the region's music internationally known with a fire and a funk few have managed to duplicate. While this draws mostly from his five albums (with a big emphasis on Nubian Magic and Real Nubian: Cairo Wedding Classics), that's none the worse, making it a perfect introduction to the man from Nubia whose heart was in Muscle Shoals (or maybe Memphis -- either Tennessee or Egypt). And for the diehards who already love him, there are two excellent live cuts; the first, "Henna," from 1992, simply screams with energy, a man with a lot to say who is eager to be heard. "Gammal," from five years later, is equally powerful, but more subtle; Kuban had learned he didn't have to get in anyone's face to be listened to. The man made some remarkable music, blending Nubian and Egyptian elements with a natural feel for soul that crossed all geographical boundaries. He'll be missed, and this is an ideal tribute. ~ Chris Nickson Trad.Nubian Music W/Jazz Personnel includes: Ali Hassan Kuban, Sukkar Sukkar Sukkar, Mabruk, Hadouda, Habibi, Bettitogor Agil, Walla Abshero, Henna, Mabrouk Wo Arisna, Maria Maria, Samiry, Gammal, Eshmana, Daiman.
