Baba Zula – Kızıl Gözlüm
BaBa ZuLa, the legendary ensemble from Istanbul, have brilliantly established themselves over the past two decades as the missing link between Turkish Psych, Krautrock and dubwise stylings.
The Kızıl Gözlüm EP, the first follow-up to their career spanning retrospective “XX,” finds the band more experimental and expansive than ever.
The 3-track EP features exploratory versions of songs from their upcoming Glitterbeat album “Derin Derin” (out in September).
Side A: Kızıl Gözlüm (My Scarlet Eyed)
Kızıl Gözlüm was arranged and produced by founding member of BaBa ZuLa, Murat Ertel. The 12” version is a wired reinvention of the original album track. The sound is psychedelic urban folk rock where the Turkish Huseini maqam is synched with synth drums. The track also includes bendir (frame drum) and spoon performances by the band’s other founder Levent Akman and the grandioso electric oud of master Periklis Tsoukalas. While it is a love song, it nevertheless is spiked with crazed, passionate electric saz solos from Ertel.
