In order to learn turkish I'm interested in discovering music from turkey, so I'm looking at good bands or songwriters from there.
Pretty much any genre, maybe not rap or electronic music.. ( still curious )
But if it is sounding like [Oxbow, Enablers, Daughters, The locust, Blonde redhead, radiohead, The Paper Chase, Arcade fire, Beirut, Other lives, parenthetical Girls, MONO, Black heart procession, Sigur ros, Silver Mt Zion] It can't be bad.
So yes, anywhere near Rock/experimental/metal music and kuddos if they're with turkish lyrics in it.
Posted this thread two times already, and while It's been very interesting, most of the answer I got were anatolian rock from the 70's, which is fine, I really enjoyed baris manco, but well, if you have anything more 90's, 00's, 10's ish it's welcome :)
Thanks in advance, and thanks to those who already answered :)

Check these guys :
Son Feci Bisiklet
Büyük Ev Ablukada (my favourite )
And tell me if you can't find download links .These are all some kinda alt rock and acoustic rock . But I dont know any good metal from Turkey .As a Turkish metalhead this really upsets me.All I have found is bedroom metal from bandcamp.
Sorry to break it to you, but almost all Turkish music is unbearable shit.
They failed to update their musical styles in the past century and still constantly produce shit that's a slight variation on centuries-old turkish folk music. Think if all western music was based around drinking songs or some shit; no shoegaze, no electronic forms of music, especially nothing like noise music.
Hayvanlar Alemi is one of the few exceptions, but they don't use a lot of lyrics. You can find them on Spotify;"Ördekler" is a track that has a psychedelic description of a room (unsung). Pretty cool.
Ok.. Well, that's an "interesting" view. I didn't discover all the music I'm keen on in three days, so I don't expect it to be easier with turkish sang music, hm.
Though the redundency of anatolian 70's rock since I started my quest seems to be kind of a... sign that indeed that culture might be stuck in the past somehow. I don't know. I had a turkish friend who casually brought the idea that she wanted to study in france because she couldn't bear the music where she was, so...
I want to believe though, let's put it like that.
Keep on believing. I'll jizz if I ever find any music that is A) not obviously based around folk and B) not terrible turkish rap/hip hop.
But yeah, there are some Turkish rapmen out there if you can bear to listen to them.
Here have some metal:
>Death metal, but with some terrible pop music blended in. Still GOAT
Folk, prog, heavy and some anatolian rock blended in
>Cheesy prog/power. This one has english lyrics
While it's an unfortunate truth that Turkey doesn't have much to offer the music world which is unique or interesting, doesn't mean it's completely void of it.
Sometimes you've just got to get lucky and look in the right places.
Here's one of my favourites:
A genuinely standout modern prog act which is criminally underrated.
No probs, it's always fun to see and help other music scavengers. I honestly wish I just had more to offer you, but like I said, Turkey's a tough nut in the musical nutcracker.
Best of luck anyway.
OP here, I really like it too, definitely going to fins what is to be found, it reminds me of Erik Truffaz and Ibrahim maalouf if you dig that style :)
Not OP but bumping for interest and for translation if anyone feels like helping, I sent a gift to someone and colissimo's telling "PTT İşyerine Sevk Edildi" what would it mean ? google translate doesn't make sense.
