Selda Bagcan


If you're unfamiliar with Selda, familiarize yourself with her. This is Vol. 1 of 2 spanning her songs from the beginning of her career. Her voice is beautiful and her harking ways have captivated me into a firm belief that essentially anything turkish from this time period up to the pre-electronica height in the 80's is fucking golden. She can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes, and this record displays a body of work with much more vulnerabilities and uncompromising lofi singer/songwriter opulence-It's really hard not to fall in love with her strength, voice and passion.
