Kirkbinsinek – Sis Pus Sus
World In Sound – 2015
Rock, Psych, World, Sixties, Seventies, Prog, Free
Like a big sea of mellow waves, the psychedelic sound of Kirkbinsinek washes over you and calms your soul. On their new album Sis Pus Sus the Turkish outfit implore the use of 60’s and 70’s psychedelic rock with definite ventures into the proggy realm and ofcourse world or better yet Eastern influences. And on many occasion those Eastern influences take center stage, partially in debt to the instrumentation, the use of cello and the percussion. And ofcourse also because of the Turkish vocals. Which will undoubtedly deter some listeners from completely diving into these magical songs. The catchiest track, which reminds hugely of another band and song, is perhaps Derdim Dert. The staccato riffing, flowing vocal lines and almost polyphone like wails that reminds of Canta U Populu Corsu give this that extra boost towards being utterly mesmerizing. Don’t be fooled, even though the music sounds highly Eastern and intensely worldly, this is by no means the normal rock band from that region of the world. Kirkbinsinek is able to be hypnotic without charming snakes, is able to space out without using jet fuel and is able to make overwhelming rock with a whole range of inspirations in a similar way Masters Of Reality or Wovenhand incorporates those influences. Expertly done!
