    Another reason to love BB. I love turning people onto Koray. He’s one of my favorite vectors, Victor.

    Nice! Also maybe this will give his career the boost that the “Sufi and a Killer” album, on Warp records, did not. Since Gonjasufi & Gaslampkiller used huge sections of his music without credit this past year -and were recognied as the music’s copyright owners by Audible Magic software!

    for more on that.

    Sadly, it doesn’t contain some of the best of his material. I got a CD-R copy of a mix of stuff that Sublime Frequencies dudes had collected, and it’s incredible. It’s too bad some of those tracks didn’t make it to wax, some of it I believe may be totally unreleased.

  5. While not necessarily directly connected to Erkin Kovay, Finders Keepers, as well as it’s sister label B-Music re-release a lot of wonderful worldwide psychedelic rock, funk, random fuzz and forgotten soundtracks from decidedly hazier yesteryears. 

    Really, really consistently amazing archival work being done by these guys. I would recommend checking out Sarolta Zalatnay, whose work was previously featured as a release on Finders Keepers:

    There’s a really good good article in the latest issue of The Wire all about Turkish psychedelia, and an online compilation to go along with it here:  http://www.thewire.co.uk/articles/8009/

    Here’s one of my favourites from Selda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y51cPXCaZbk

    There is a hipster hiding in the comment section. Can you spot him too?

    Turkish Psychedelia?  C’mon, that’s so tired now.  All the cool kids are listening to shouty French Prog like Etron Fou Leloublan, Albert Marcouer and Debile Menthol.  You can be cool too if you go and listen to that stuff right away.
