Altın Gün

Altın Gün are as much a preservation as they are a fresh exploration of Turkish psychedelic folk rock from the sixties and seventies. The group started as a pact between members of Jacco Gardner and Jungle By Night, who wound up crossing paths with musicians Erdinç Ecevit Yildiz and Merve Dasdemir; two scholars of Turkish pop, disco, prog rock and traditional music. Fans of legendary Turkish singer Selda will immediately be smitten by this combustible combination of fuzzy guitar riffs and Turkish scales. If you dig Tame Impala or King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Altın Gün will likely tickle your fancy as well.
