#12: Seni Görmem Imkansız 

Who are they?

A duo from Turkey. 

Why I like it
The rhythm is very driven and hypnotic (I love it when the drums are loud in the mix) and I enjoy the vocals. 

Staying Power

They don’t seem to be active anymore, but one of the two members, Gaye Su Akyol has an interesting solo project.

#9: Vaadat Charigim

Who are they?
A shoegaze trio from Israel. Their latest album came out last year and is called Sinking as a Stone.

Why I like it
Shoegaze is a genre I enjoy quite a bit, so obviously I like this take on it too. It’s very summery and probably cool to see live.
Their lyrics are in Hebrew, but some of them are explained here by their singer/guitarist.

Staying Power
I’ll probably listen to their latest album.

Why I like it
These are incredibly calm and haunting songs with beautiful vocals. This is the first artist I picked via the KEXP live performances podcast and definitely a winner.

Staying Power
I am probably going to check out the latest album at some point and defintely will return to listening to the session.
