Shida Shahabi "Homes (Fat Cat)"
If Erik Satie would have listened to more indie rock, his compositions would have likely sounded a lot like those of Iranian pianist/composer Shida Shahabi. Homes, her debut on FatCat’s classical imprint 130701 is absolutely stunning. Primarily piano with ethereal keyboard hints, each one of these emotive compositions sounds practically written for peak cable TV. Which makes sense, as she sites film composition as her main influence (that and all the My Bloody Valentine and Yo La Tengo she grew up listening to.) Check out the albums first song “Abisme.”
