Gig: Ekin Fil / Least Carpet, 06.04.2014 in der Walpodenakademie Mainz

Operating out of Istanbul, Ekin Fil is the solo project of Turkish musician Ekin Üzeltüzenci. Her music first came to the ears of many by way of “Language,” a 2011 cassette release on the Root Strata label. “Language” presented listeners with a fractured, hazy soundworld in which half-remembered melodies and wraith-like vocals cohered into dark and hypnotic masses. On this self-titled album, Ekin opens the curtains a bit, letting in some light and offering up an even more refined album. This is a haunting collection of songs that wouldn’t sound out of place on Drunken Fish Records in 1995, effectively channeling the ghosts of Roy Montgomery and the Bristol shoegaze scene, while occupying similar sonic climes as those traversed by Grouper and Jessica Bailiff.

"Across the record’s half-hour running time, Istanbul’s Ekin Üzeltüzenci offers eight mysterious vignettes of haunted folk that will entomb you in their elegant grace." (Decoder Magazine)

"Ekin Fil is an artist who occupies her own terrain and it’s a lovely experience getting lost there." (Ryan Potts, Experimedia)
