New project from Turkey fusing Anatolian psychedelics and electronics with post-punk and spoken word. Mavi Güneş 69, is a band formed by Murat Ertel, frontman of cult Turkish psychedelic/dub outfit BaBa ZuLa. Very nice new music!!!
Some words from the label:
3 Çember, meaning 3 Circles, is a dubbed out electric saz jam with haunting theremin sounds and hypnotic vocals, led by Esma’s mystical incantation - “We are born, we move round and round in circles until we find our soul, soul then wonders for its companion, hearts reach bodies and fire reach the skies.”
In “Yafta” industrial electronics meet Anatolian rhythms, infused with a punk attitude. Yafta, meaning, ‘labelling’, encourages breaking free of society’s confines. “Came into this world, opened my eyes, I had no labels, was bare-naked, hastily they dressed me in a pair of briefs to mark my identity.” You can hear their sons accompanying them on vocals.
