After hearing their two newest releases, we've officially anointed Finders Keepers Records "the world's coolest record label." The thing that really strikes me about all of the Finders Keepers stuff is how far ahead of its time it sounds. Keep in mind, most of this stuff is from the '60s and early '70s.
"Regarded amongst hardened collectors of Anatolian rock as THE DADDY of all Turkish rarities, this record simply has to be heard to be believed and even then it's still literally UNBELIEVABLE. Is this record for real? Either these guys had time-machines or DJ Kool Herc had secret Eastern connections..." (source)

So apparently in the early '70s, there was an "Anatolian psych explosion" going on in Turkey. This is news to me, but our boys at Finders Keepers have unearthed two amazing gems: Mustafa Ozkent's Genclik ile elele, and Selda's self-titled debut LP. I have no frame of reference to even begin describing this stuff, other than the fact that I have a hard time believing some of the breaks on these two records came from Turkey over 30 years ago. Highly recommended, especially for DJs that are in to blowing people's minds.

Detroit easily handled the Oakland A's last night 5-1, stealing home field advantage and to taking a 1-0 lead in the ALCS. The "experts" continue to pick against the Tigers, but like in the Yankees series, they appear to love being the underdog.
