Track by Track Review


Mavi Cocuklar - Tamzara dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

This is a catchy instro with an almost go-go sound. Distortion and rampaging rhythms, and that between surf and psych club sound. Great drums and sax break, and intensely warbled guitar.

Haramiler - Canlica Yolunda dotdotdotdot
Psychedelic Surf (Instrumental)

Verging on psychedelia, and sporting some very cool surf glissandos, "Canlica Yolunda" is an intriguing blend of traditional Turkish sounds and western structures. This superb song is just waiting for an inventive surfband to make it their own. Very cool!

Erkin Koray - Cicek Dagi dotdotdotdot
Psychedelic Surf (Vocal)

"Cicek Dagi" is a pretty instro with a surf feel as viewed through the veils of time. Interesting and adventurous, and on the edges of surf where only the brave ride the curl.
