• International Sad Hits Volume One

    A couple of months ago, Damon & Naomi's International Sad Hits, Volume One: Altaic Language Group was released. Four songs from four male singer/songwriters they've learnt about while touring is on it. They're all quite melancholic with a sense for poetry. The artists also have in common that guitar is their main instrument and that they (at least compared to what I usually listen to) are fairly old.

    Fikret Kızılok (Fikret Kizilok):

    Yeter ki (Just as Long)
    Güzel Ne Güzel Olmuşsun (Beautiful, How Beautiful You Have Become)
    Farketmeden (Without Noticing)
    Anadolu'yum (I'm Anatolia)

    Considering how much I enjoy hearing Turkish, it's strange that I so rarely listen to Turkish music. Fikret Kızılok has got a smooth voice and there's a soft feeling to all of these songs that I really like. All songs are just beautiful. And I can only wish there was more. I'd appreciate any recommendations for albums of his ^^

    김두수 (Kim Doo Soo):

    보헤미안 (Bohemian)
    산 (Mountain)
    해당화 (Sweet Briar)
