First heralded by Brian Eno after judging a 1990 musical festival in Kazakhstan, Yat-Kha have been enduring purveyors of traditional khoomei (throatsinging) sounds of its native land of Tuva in South Siberia, while being aware of the western worlds of rock and experimental rock (claiming Deep Purple and Sonic Youth as faves). Leader/bassist vocalist Albert Kuvezin has steered his group into much acclaim over the years and to much larger audience, thanks to hooking up with the Chieftains' management. Kuvezin even has made it to the WFMU studios, once in an in interview on on Rob Weisberg's program (real audio link to the show archive as a whole) and again on Ken's show for a short live performance with Yat-Kha (pre-archives, sorry!). Their new disc Re-Covers finds them taking on songs by Hank Williams, Kraftwerk, the Stones and more. Here are MP3s of their versions of Motorhead's "Orgasmatron" and Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart."
