Formed by three school friends in the Turkish capital of Ankara in 1999, Hayvanlar Alemi have established themselves at the vanguard of global psychedelic sound. Interfacing with the golden age of Turkish psychedelic rock, surf music, Cambodian pop, West African guitar motifs, Middle Eastern traditional music and the knife edge of indie rock, it was clear from the beginning that Hayvanlar Alemi was an instrumental rock band for our radically interconnected millennium.
But in 2010 they recorded and released (internet only) a dramatically different sort of album. The band had flirted with dub-reggae stylings since their inception and with 'Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara' they at last realized their dream of making a full-blown dub album, though clearly a dub album that also embraced their own agenda. The album includes both covers of the Eek-a-Mouse classic "Assassinator" and a legendary Turkish radio jingle, and blends together re-workings of older Hayvanlar Alemi songs with freshly minted, dubwise explorations.
'Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara' is the flashpoint where dub music and global psych-rock melt together.
It is a feast for all well-appointed sonic explorers.
Side A is the complete Visions of a Psychedelic Ankara (2010) and Side B is a collection of related, unreleased songs and experiments entitled: Selected Visions (2009-2011)
