Here's Tim Krysko of Wreck The Place Fantastic reporting in with our International Spotlight. Every week we're featuring updates and music downloads from bands outside the North American market. This week we're headed to Turkey:
The Turkish underground scene has been developing steadily for a number of years now. The country has already produced some stellar bands that have come and gone (look up Antisilence, Radical Noise, or Less for starters), but now there's a plethora of young bands positioning themselves to make a name for the Turkish music community. And lately, from what I hear, the buzz is around the country's capital, Ankara, as opposed to its cosmopolitan hub city Istanbul. One of the bands building their name in Ankara and across Turkey is Since Yesterday. Their first recording was a seven-song record called Maybe Tomorrow which appeared in 2002. The following year they shared a split with fellow Turkish band In Between, and in 2004 those two bands joined together with the US's Planes Mistaken For Stars and the UK's Candy Sniper for a 4-way split. Since Yesterday is hard at work on new material, but in the meantime here's one of their tracks called "The Last Message".
