Sholi takes on Joanna Newsom & Iranian superstar Googoosh

SF band Sholi has put the finishing touches on their new 7″ single Hejrat for the Holocene Music label coming out Feb. 12th. The A-side contains a cover of “Hejrat” by Iranian superstar diva Googoosh, and the B-side a cover of Joanna Newsom’s “Sprout and the Bean.” Sholi has previously released an EP, a split single with The Dead Science and recently wrapped up recording its debut full-length album with Greg Saunier of Deerhoof in the control booth. The album, which at press time is still untitled, will be released later in 2008.
