Hailing from the Turkish capital of Ankara and releasing on Sublime Frequencies, Hayvanlar Alemi are a killer hyper-colourful improvising psych-rock unit, consisting of old school friends Ozum Itez (electric guitar), Isik Sarihan (percussion) and Hazar Mutgan (bass), who successfully got themselves into everything psychedelic, exotic and adventurous. Their joyously broad sound covers lots of bases; from never-ending psych ventures to two minute international pop covers, West African blues guitars to pulsating Thai rhythms, Floydian drums to acoustic street craft... always kept loose and driven by mood, inevitably melting into their distinctive sound and structure. "A flawless example of Sublime Frequencies' peculiar diamond mining … The group ooze the alternative history of rock 'n' roll from every pore" – The Wire
