Selda - Selda (1976)

Another post today would have to be my all-time favorite Turkish psychedelic album to date, and that is Selda's self-titled album. I was first introduced to this a while ago by one of my friends down at school and i was in love right away. The guitars are so intricate and fuzzed out that you can't help but to get lost within the music. Granted, you can't actually understand what she is saying, but you can hear the power in her voice, and it just sends shivers up my spine. She was a Turkish protest-psychedelic rock singer and she does it so well that it is scary. If one can honestly listen to this album and not just fall in love with everything going on within it I will be the most amazed person because this stuff will get anyone really digging on the Turkish psychedelic scene.
I have listened to other Turkish stuff, but still it all seems so mediocre to what Selda puts out there. If you get this and like it i am sure that i will be posting some more of this genre as time passes. There is just so much to be taken from music like Selda's, or Erkin Koray's, or even 3 Hur-El. Just give it a listen and really just let yourself be taken in and blown away by this music.

I've listened to the sample and can't wait to hear the full album. Thanks for allowing me to hear music I wouldn't otherwise have been exposed to.

Selda's self titled is as good as it gets. There are a lot of Turkish psych albums out there, but you my friend found the best there is.

This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader
entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved
what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!
