Dirtmusic 'Bu Bir Ruya' LP
Dirtmusic return with their fifth album, a full-scale collaboration with Turkish-psych visionary Murat Ertel from Baba Zula. Recorded in Istanbul, the album navigates hypnotic rhythms, cinematic atmospheres and dark political realities.
Bu Bir Ruya is a questing, restless record for the head, but perhaps more so for the body. It broods throughout, as post-punk, Turkish psych, funk, rock and electronics stalk the grooves with widescreen intent. Love is a Foreign Country, features a startling appearance by Gaye Su Akyol, a treat for those who loved her Hologram Imparatorlugu, one of the most striking Glitterbeat releases of 2016.
Fans of Baba Zula, Turkey’s premier psychedelicists, will also have more than enough to chew on, par cularly in the remarkable tle track that closes the album. Recorded in Istanbul, the album navigates hypno c, rhythms, cinema c, atmospheres and dark, poli cal reali es.
