This weeks staff pick comes from Heather. Heather's gone for a recent 7" from Altin Gün 'Tatli Dile Güler Yüze / Hababam', available here.
Altin Gün had me at hello. They create Turkish psychedelic folk-rock of the 70's, with an insanely good combination of musicians. The band sound like the soundtrack to a film I've never seen, but also manage to fit in perfectly on the dance floor.
I first heard about them from their album 'On' which sold out a few months ago, and from now onwards I think they're on to big big things...check them out. The musicians seem to be in many bands each, with a stellar line-up including drummer Nic Mauskovich (one half of Bruxas) and I think are actually based in Amsterdam. Well done Altin Gün, you're nailing it out there, wherever you are.
