"Yat-Kha’s unique sound revolves around the marriage of the traditional - 'khoomei' throat-singing, endemic to the group's native Tuva (the smallest and most remote republic in the Russian Federation), which allows the singer to hold more than one note simultaneously - to the modern - the (then-underground) rock and punk which inspired Albert to pick up his first electric guitar. Albert’s bone-shaking double-bass growl, coupled with his high harmonics, provide the foundation while the music is driven along by a mix of traditional instruments which contrast with Albert’s beloved electric guitar. 'Recovers' recorded late last year after the band suffered a number of disasters including stolen musical equipment, stolen passports and a car crash, Albert Kuvezin took time out to reflect on what started him on this journey in the first place, which led to the recording of this album paying tribute to the music which influenced the band. Here you can hear Joy Division, ! Led Zepplin, Captain Beefheart, Chieftains and others as you never have heard before, as Yat-Kha bring a new element to these songs."
