Gece and On, the newest albums by the Dutch/Turkish group Altın Gün, have accrued a decent buzz by giving listeners a decent buzz. Their funky psych-rock harks back to the aromatic trippiness of Turkey’s greatest exponents of Westernized Anatolian folk music from the ’60s and ’70s: Erkin Koray, Selda, Barış Manço, and Edip Akbayram. There is a distinctively Turkish melodic floridity that animates Altın Gün’s songs, and by dint of it being such an underground phenomenon in America, it retains a piquancy, even among people who’ve heard the aforementioned avatars. It would be great to see Altın Gün lead a revival of this fantastic sound in the West, as it’s one of the richest seams of rock that’s ever rippled an eardrum. by Dave Segal
