Islandman – Rest In Space

DKK 150,00 inc. Vat

Istanbul-based Tolga Büyük started his solo project islandman in 2010 and has already built quite a name for himself with a slew of self-released EPs & albums. Already a part of Istanbul’s psychedelic scene as part of the live-performing band Farfara; as islandman he builds his style off the rich history of Turkeys psychedelic rock movement while taking it one step further in his own direction. 

The Anatolian tradition of fusing the country’s folk music with Western influences has produced a unique legacy of sound. The guitar has long been the weapon of choice for the Anatolian sound, and so too for islandman. But apart from mastering this instrument quite eloquently, he also orchestrates it into a new and different context than merely providing hippie nostalgia. 

By re-framing the murky and somewhat dusty Anatolian psychedelic sound with a cool mediterranean vibe and a very balearic-friendly production, islandman’s music is the next step in the progression of Anatolian music.
