uSSSy – Afghan Music House Party


The new album by the Russian duo uSSSy is one of the most singularly uncompromising and stylistically fresh experimental rock releases of the last frew years. Merging the spastic kinetics of noise/math rock in the style of such acts as Hella or Noxagt with traditional Afghan music structures and guitar playing imitating Afghan instruments, Afghan Music House Party is a story of Soviet-Afghan conflict told after many years with an amplified, fuzzy aftertaste – like a modern day version of German Oak’s self-titled album, the 1972 krautrock “concept album” gem about Nazi Germany and WW2. If you enjoyed the blend of afrobeat and psych rock on Goat’s World Music, this album will be right up your alley. Highly, highly recommended!
